Age & Sun Spots

Age and sun spots are among the most common cosmetic skin concerns, especially for Georgia residents who spend a lot of time in the sun. At Goodman Dermatology, we offer treatments to help alleviate these conditions, welcoming patients to our locations in Roswell, Marietta / East Cobb, Woodstock and Dawsonville, GA.

What Are Age and Sun Spots?

Age spots and sun spots are common cosmetic features that develop due to frequent sun exposure. When the body is exposed to excessive sunlight, the skin cells produce extra melanin in an effort to protect the skin from damage. Over time, this can result in the development of sun spots and age spots. Although these spots are generally harmless, their appearance can motivate many patients to pursue treatment. At Goodman Dermatology, we offer many treatments to help patients eliminate age and sun spots.

How Much Do Age and Sun Spot Treatments Cost?

The cost of your age and sun spot treatment will vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of your age and sun spot treatment cost. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.

What Can I Expect During the Age and Sun Spot Treatment?

Your age and sun spot treatment will vary depending on the techniques involved. Since we specialize in multiple age and sun spot removal techniques, we will recommend the treatment that is best for you based on your skin type. These treatments include:

 

Are There Any Side Effects After Age and Sun Spot Treatments?

The side effects from your age and sun spot treatment will vary depending on the techniques and treatments used. In most cases, since these treatments are non-surgical, the symptoms will be fairly minor and typically fade within a few days of treatment.

Is There Any Downtime Required After Age and Sun Spot Treatments?

The downtime required following your age and sun spot treatment will also vary on the techniques and treatments involved. Since exfoliation is often required to eliminate age spots and sun spots, you will need to take special care of the treated areas following your appointment. This may include altering your skin care routine and using sun screen to protect the treated skin from sun damage during the healing phase.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect After My Age and Sun Spot Treatment?

The results from age and sun spot treatments typically develop gradually over the weeks and months following your treatment. Some patients may notice results shortly after treatment, especially those with minor sun spots and age spots. Generally, patients will need to receive multiple treatment sessions in order to completely eliminate their sun spots and age spots. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors so that you know what to expect during and after your treatment.
