Age spots are small dark patches of skin caused by overactive melanocytes in the skin that produce excess melanin, creating dark spots. These patches are also called sun spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines, and are harmless to your health, but can knock confidence and create self-consciousness issues. Usually caused or exacerbated by exposure to UV rays, and can be prevented by using a sunscreen with high SPF that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
At PHI Clinic, we house what we know to be the best treatment options for age spots with the largest range of devices in the UK, as we understand that every patient is unique, and needs their own tailored plan for reducing the appearance of age spots. All patients are assessed in a consultation with an appropriate clinician, and the perfect care option is selected from our proven effective range.
We house 3 skincare ranges at PHI Clinic: Obagi, Universkin, and SkinCeuticals, aiming to ensure that, if skincare is the route you want to take to reduce age spots, there will be a treatment for you.
Obagi is a prescription-strength range of medicated skincare products, with different ranges targeting different conditions.
SkinCeuticals are formulated to act as both a corrective and preventative method, to fix damage that has already been caused, and reduce further damage caused by UV exposure or other factors.
We are the first clinic in England to provide Universkin, a bespoke service wherein your products are mixed right there and then to suit the conditions you want treated, along with the inclusion of vital ingredients to improve the overall health of skin.
Erbium YAG Laser
The Erbium:YAG Laser uses precisely targeted infrared light to encourage collagen production and growth by creating a controlled thermal injury without harming the skin around the area of pigmentation.
Intense Pulsed Light lasers deliver pulses of light to the skin’s surface, but unlike other lasers, use broad spectrum light that has filters applied to it in order to treat a variety of conditions in one session without having to switch between devices. This device also adds small amounts of collagen to improve the structure of skin’s surface.
Laser Resurfacing (Lase MD)
Laser resurfacing uses a fractional laser to deliver pulses of concentrated light to the skin, which removes layers to reveal new skin underneath. Lase MD is one of the devices that can be used to address pigmentation.
Pulsed Dye Laser
These lasers, like the VBeam, deliver long pulses of light to the epidermis that target areas of pigmentation to reduce their appearance.
