Age Spots

4 Solutions to Treat Age Spots

Have you noticed small, flat, dark areas on your skin? Pesky age spots are dark dots on the skin caused by sun exposure over time. 

If you want to get rid of age spots fast, anti-aging skin treatments can help. The newest anti-aging procedures include everything from microneedling and chemical peels to specialized facials

If you want to eliminate your age spots, most over-the-counter lightening creams will only slightly make them less noticeable. Anti-aging procedures that remove surface layers of discolored skin often work better than a lightening cream. 

Here are the best anti-aging treatments to tackle age spots. We offer the following services at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona. 

Chemical Peels

A specialized chemical solution is used to lift the outer layer of old, dead skin during a chemical peel. Chemical peels will gradually fade your age spots. New skin appears with fewer age spots and less pigmentation. 

Chemical peels are also a popular aging skin treatment to tackle acne, fine lines, sun damage, and scarring. 


Microneedling can also help eliminate pesky age spots. This chemical-free anti-aging treatment induces the body to heal itself naturally. Microneedling for age spots works exceptionally well because the process helps break up melanin in the skin. 

You may also want to consider Scarlet SRF, which is a next-generation short-pulse radio frequency (SRF) treatment that works to target lines, wrinkles, acne, scarring, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

Plasma Pen

The Plasma Pen is another highly effective solution to age spots. During treatment, the tool superficially burns spots on the skin’s surface to reveal clear skin beneath. The unique thing about the Plasma Pen is that you can also use it to treat age spots on other areas of the body, not just the face. 

The Plasma Pen can also diminish forehead lines, remove skin tags or sunspots, erase acne scars, and tighten the area around the eyelids. 


Dermaplaning is another safe, non-invasive anti-aging treatment that removes dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the skin. Dermaplaning can help fade age spots and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. 

Dermaplaning leaves the skin looking and feeling more refreshed and rejuvenated. 

How Many Treatments Will You Need?

Anti-aging treatments will vary from person to person. Depending on the severity of your age spots and your ultimate goals, you may need one or more of the treatments mentioned above. However, only one treatment is required with the Plasma Pen in most cases. 

Prevent New Age Spots

Aging skin treatments work wonders to eliminate age spots you already have. With that being said, it’s best to prevent new spots from forming. So amp up your sun safety routine and practice sun safety habits like wearing a hat, staying out of direct sunlight during powerful hours, and constantly using a broad-spectrum sunscreen. 

Regardless of which treatment direction you decide on, the most important factor is consistency. Seeing us on a regular basis will help you achieve your skincare goals sooner and keep you looking your absolute best.

Got Sun Spots? We’ve got Solutions

They’re referred to by a few names— sunspots, liver spots, or age spots— but what is for sure, is that these dark spots on our skin age us drastically. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa we understand your desire to look and feel your best, so even though some might tell you to overlook a few dark spots on your skin, we’re here to help handle them. Very common in adults over 50, but sun spots also appear in younger people as well, they’re the byproduct of prolonged sun exposure and the melanin becomes gathered in specific areas.  Of course, sun protection is the key to the prevention of sun spots, but even if you do everything correctly, your chances of landing a sunspot are still pretty high. So what can you do to diminish them? Here are a few ideas at your favorite Gilbert med spa.

1.) Chemical Peels

One of the most effective treatments you can use to address age spots is chemical peels. The treatment is a solution that’s applied by one of our amazing aestheticians, which helps remove the outer layer of skin. Kind of like an eraser for your complexion, the chemical peel provides a glow and helps with wrinkles and other blemishes.

2.) Dermaplaning

Want to see a big difference on your skin quickly? Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that takes a matter of minutes, but with incredible results. Performed by one of our talented aestheticians, dermaplaning is the act of using a scalpel to gently scrape the dead skin from your skin. This provided a more even complexion and permits your skincare products to go deeper in the skin. 

3.) Microneedling

One of the reasons why age spots darken as we age is that there’s a lack of new cells being created, one way to aid this is with a process called microneedling. The treatment starts with a topical numbing agent, then with a pen containing several very tiny needles which then are injected into the skin, creating collagen induction channels. These small ‘injuries’ made to the face causes the body to start a healing process, where collagen is sent and ultimately leads to more youthful-looking skin.   For more information about how Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa can help with your sunspot concerns or any skincare goals, please visit or call us at (480) 923-6138.
