Age Spot Treatments
What are Age Spots?
Age spots — also known as liver spots, sun spots, or solar lentigines — are patches of pigmentation that appear on the skin as we get older. Depending on your skin type, these can show as dark spots on darker skin tones or light brown spots of varying shapes and sizes.
While age spots don’t pose health threats, they can affect our confidence, especially if they are on the face. There are several treatment options that aim to reduce or remove age spots and promote even pigmentation for more radiant skin. Two of the most popular treatments use laser or fillers.
For an age spots removal treatment using the latest laser technology or award-winning dermal fillers, book your appointment with a leading aesthetic doctor in Scotland — Dr Darren McKeown.
While your natural melanin production and genetics can play a part, age spots are almost always associated with excessive sun exposure in the past. Many people underestimate the impact of UV radiation and the cumulative effect of the sun’s rays over many years, but this is what eventually results in the characteristic appearance of sun damaged skin.
Wearing a hat and using sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher can help prevent liver spots, but for existing sun damage, there are several ways to treat age spots.
The best age spots treatment for your skin type will depend on the extent of the sun spots and the other associated signs of ageing that are also present, such as fine lines & wrinkles.

using Laser & Fillers
Dr Darren McKeown offers the following non-surgical treatments for age spots:
Pulsed light therapy is one of the best ways to treat age spots and the BBL (BroadBand Light™) laser is currently one of the best devices on the market.
The BBL laser treatment has become a highly sought-after treatment for age spots and overall skin rejuvenation because it is quick, effective, and versatile. A BBL treatment harnesses the power of advanced light technology to effectively target and eliminate pigment irregularities and other types of sun damage on the face, hands, shoulders, and arms.
At McKeown Medical, the handheld Sciton BBL® HERO™️ device is used for our sun spots treatment. The device emits short pulses of high-energy broadband light that penetrates the skin’s surface and stimulates the production of collagen and regeneration of skin cells, which aids in getting rid of age spots.
One of the major advantages of BBL age spot treatments is that they deliver consistent results. The device’s settings can be adjusted to different wavelengths and uses motion tracking technology to allow for precise targeting of the pigmented cells while minimising damage to the surrounding healthy skin. A sun spot treatment using BBL is also relatively pain free because the device is designed with ComfortCool technology that keeps the skin cool and comfortable during the treatment.
Multiple BBL treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments needed depends on several factors which we will discuss during your consultation.

Injections of Facial Filler
Dermal filler injections are a good treatment to have alongside a liver spots removal if you want to treat other signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as solar lentigines.
Dermal fillers for the face work by plumping the skin below the wrinkle, reducing the depth of deeper wrinkles and folds. This is typically most effective in the lower part of the face, around the mouth area. Occasionally, fillers can be combined with injections in the upper face where the lines on the upper face are very deep.
The procedure involves injecting a facial filler into the targeted areas beneath the surface of the epidermis to add volume and create a smoother, more youthful appearance. We use HA (hyaluronic acid) fillers for this treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that keeps the skin hydrated, smooth and firm while also aiding in wound healing so the skin heals faster.
