Is Age Spot Removal Permanent? By Dr. Lombardi on February 13, 2024

Age spots are defined by the emergence of dark and bumpy spots on the surface of your skin. You may know them as liver spots or even as sunspots, as many of these blemishes are formed as a result of UV exposure. There are several steps you can take to prevent age spots, though they may still appear over time, no matter what preventative measures you practice. We offer progressive age spot treatment to patients with visible aging spots around the body. But is age spot removal permanent?

Is Age Spot Removal Permanent?

How does age spot removal work? Is age spot removal permanent? Does the process hurt? These valid questions have been asked by our patients, and we want to take the time to answer them here.

Defining Age Spots

You may not realize that you are starting to develop age spots on your skin. When they first start to form, they look no different than freckles or other harmless spots. However, age spots will grow over time if they are not properly treated. Their growth can also be exacerbated by prolonged sun exposure and other damaging habits.

Age spots most often show up on areas of the face, scalp, hands, and arms. It is not unheard of to have age spots on other parts of the body, however. It is important to get a full and proper diagnosis from your skin specialist, so you know what kind of treatment to pursue.

Getting Treatment

Depending on the nature, location, and severity of your age spots, different types of treatment are available. At the Lombardi Institute of Dermatology, we offer comprehensive solutions that include:


This non-surgical treatment uses an exfoliating process to treat the surface layers of your skin. Exfoliation scrubs away dead skin cells and removes the damaged outer layers of your skin. This allows the healthy, fresh layers of skin underneath to come to the surface and start the regeneration process.

Laser Removal

Among the various treatment options, laser sun spot removal is one of the most popular methods. This is because it is virtually painless and requires no surgeries or incisions. It uses intense laser light to burn away damaged skin. This process helps your skin spring into action, healing itself and replacing damaged areas with a new smoothness.

Chemical Peels

Similar to microdermabrasion, chemical peels can remove the outer layers of your skin. It uses a calming process to remove damaged skin, making room for healthy skin tissue to grow. This treatment can make your skin feel a little sensitive after the process, but you should not be in undue pain.

All of these treatment methods offer quick and stunning results that can significantly reduce or even remove your visible age spots.

Is Age Spot Removal Designed to be Permanent?

Our treatments offer complete rejuvenation, helping your skin stay young and healthy for many years to come. Age spots that have been directly treated with one of our skin services are not likely to come back, but it is still possible. You need to take the proper steps to protect your skin from future damage.

Unfortunately, some patients see a reverse in their treatment results after exposing themselves to the sun without any protection. It is really important that you wear sunscreen and sunglasses whenever you are outside for prolonged periods of time. You can easily come back to Dr. Lombardi for a touch-up with one of our innovative laser-guided sessions, which can help you keep the spots away for good.

Recovering from Age Spot Removal

None of our age spot treatments require surgery. This means that it is not an intensive process that requires weeks of preparation and recovery. However, it is still critical to listen to your doctor’s instructions so you can properly heal from your treatment. You still want to maintain good health in order to enjoy the results of your age spot removal.

The recovery process is typically very simple and short. You may have some redness and sensitivity at the treatment site, which is to be expected. Within the next two days, all of that discomfort should disappear. Some of the effects of age spot removal will be visible immediately, while the more lasting results can take a few weeks to fully show up.
