Age spots are small, flat dark spots that are generally 1 cm or greater in diameter and usually appear on areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders and arms. Age spots are also called sunspots or liver spots, and are scientifically known as solar lentigenes.
Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution onto the skin in order to eliminate the outermost layers. As a result, fresh and smoother skin emerges, replacing the old layers. Although there are rare side effects such as scarring, infection, and temporary lightening or darkening of the skin, our VIDASKIN doctors will carefully personalise the chemical concentrations and application duration for a gentle peel. Any redness experienced is typically temporary, lasting only a few hours. Depending on individual circumstances, multiple treatments may be recommended as part of a treatment plan.
