Age Spots in Odessa, TX

Years of sun exposure can lead to your skin developing dark patches commonly referred to as age spots. These spots, often a result of sun damage or inherited traits, typically appear on areas of the body, such as the hands, back, shoulders, face, or arms. Serving the Midland-Odessa, TX area, Refine Plastic Surgery provides noninvasive laser treatments designed to target and reduce these hyperpigmentation marks. By employing the advanced SPLENDOR X technology from Lumenis, our team is able to fade age spots, enhancing your skin's radiance and glow. For more details or to arrange a consultation at our Odessa, TX practice, reach out to our team for help. Medical spa treatments, skin assessments, and surgical consultations are held at our Odessa, TX location. All surgeries are performed at Choice Care Surgery Center in Midland, TX, an advanced, fully accredited, and state-of-the-art outpatient ambulatory surgical center.

At Refine Plastic Surgery, we treat age spots with the SPLENDOR X laser platform, which uses laser energy to target and break down the melanin (the pigment that gives color to the skin) within the age spots, sparing the surrounding skin. This technology combines two different laser wavelengths to customize a more effective treatment that suits a wide range of skin types and tones, as well as the depth and color of the age spots. The absorbed laser energy heats the melanin in the age spot, causing it to break down into smaller particles. The body's immune system then naturally removes these particles over time. The SPLENDOR X system also incorporates an advanced cooling device to protect the skin's surface and reduce discomfort during the treatment.

Our team recommends multiple treatment sessions for the best outcomes. Age spots gradually fade after each session, leading to a more even skin tone and texture. Age spot treatment usually involves minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities shortly after the procedure.

Age spots, often perceived as signs of aging skin, typically result from prolonged sun exposure, coupled with the natural aging process. Pigmentation appears when the skin overproduces melanin in response to UV radiation or due to genetic factors. While age spots may be primarily a cosmetic concern, understanding their appearance can help distinguish them from other skin conditions. Here are the defining characteristics of age spots:

  • Color: Age spots can vary in color, ranging from light brown to black, depending on the individual's skin tone and the level of pigmentation.
  • Shape: They typically have a rounded, oval shape but can vary in size and contours.
  • Size: Age spots can range from the size of a freckle to over a centimeter in diameter and may group together, making them more noticeable.
  • Texture: Generally, age spots have the same texture as the rest of the skin. They are not raised and do not cause pain or discomfort.
  • Location: Most commonly found on sun-exposed areas of the skin, such as the face, hands, shoulders, arms, and back.

Leigh Ann at Refine Plastic Surgery is amazing! I received a few lymphatic massages from her during my surgery recovery! She was warm and welcoming and very accommodating when a scheduling error occurred (no fault of hers) and made room for me to be seen that day!
