Laser Removal of Age Spots, Liver Spots, Sun Spots


Did you get a lot of sun exposure in your younger days and now regret seeing those brown spots appearing on your cheeks and hands? The tell-tale signs of aging prematurely.

Does every year that goes by add another brown mark on your skin that makes it harder to hide?

Age spots, liver spots or sun spots are really all the same condition, and they are the names used to describe the small brown spots or discolorations that typically appear on your face, chest, arms and hands as a result of sun exposure. They can occur at any age, and are usually much more common in fair-skinned individuals. Over time, the spots can increase in number, in size, and grow darker, and they can become very unsightly and embarrassing for many.

At the Dermatology Laser Center & MediSpa, Dr. Snyder safely and gently performs fast and easy spot laser treatments to significantly fade and remove unwanted brown spots, and regain that youthful appearance of your skin.

Dr. Snyder’s Approach

Dr. Snyder was the first physician in Maryland using the Neodynium:Yag Laser technology with the Medlite Laser in 1992 to treat and remove age spots, liver spots, sun spots, freckles, brown spots and flat brown birthmarks. Dr. Snyder currently employs the Medlite C6 Laser and the Yag5 Laser to spot treat his patients’ undesirable brown pigment that often occurs from aging and years of sun exposure. These lasers use the energy of light to selectively target only the pigmentation within your skin and spare the surrounding normal skin tissue. The result is a complexion to be proud of. A significant reduction or elimination of brown pigment, even tone and a healthier, rejuvenated glow.

Dr. Snyder’s Treatment

Dr. Snyder uses the Medlite C6 Laser or Yag5Laser to treat your unwanted brown spots on almost any area of the body. Most patients say there is minimal discomfort during the laser treatment. The sessions are fast, gentle and easy. Typically you can be treated in about 15 minutes or less, depending on the number of areas you would like to have treated. Most age spots and freckles can be removed completely after just one laser treatment, but some darker spots may require at least two laser sessions. Healing times vary with the number and size of areas treated, but usually heal within several days after your laser treatment.

Before and After

Laser removal of age spots can also be used in combination with Photorejuvenation, BOTOX Cosmetic, dermal fillers like Radiesse and Belotero Balance, Sublime™, Exilis™, eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation™, microdermabrasion, and other rejuvenation procedures and products that are all part of a complete anti-aging program Dr. Snyder will customize for you.
