About Age Spots
Age spots are a common problem. They are more prevalent in some people than others, and especially appear on skin surfaces that have the most sun exposure, like the face, shoulders, and arms. Fortunately, the xeo Genesis Skin Therapy can effectively treat sun and age spots in just 1-2 treatments.
What is Genesis Skin Therapy like?
Genesis Skin Therapy uses IPL (Intense Pulse Light) technology. The xeo handpiece delivers a spectrum of visible light that heats pigmented cells on your skin. These cells selectively absorb the light based on the specific treatment being used. The handpiece itself will feel cool, with a slight pinching sensation when the light pulse is delivered. Each treatment will take about 10-15 minutes. Next, the treated spots may darken, with a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. These symptoms should only last a few hours. Within 1-3 weeks, the treated spots will fade and flake off. Though you will notice an immediate improvement, 2-3 treatments may be recommended to see the best results.
Why choose Genesis Skin Therapy?
Genesis Skin Therapy has many advantages over other types of skin treatments. Since the treatment is light-based, it does not require the use of gel or anesthetic cream. Any part of your body can be treated safely, and the therapy is equally effective in dealing with sun spots, age spots, and freckles. The Genesis system is FDA-approved and has been proven effective in clinical studies. It would be hard to find a safer, more effective treatment.
Spots that have been treated with Genesis Skin Therapy will not reappear. New spots may appear, though, if your skin continues to be overexposed to the sun. These spots can be removed just as quickly and safely as the initial ones, but to avoid the appearance of new spots, liberally apply sunscreen when you are outdoors. Finally, be aware that Genesis Skin Therapy specifically targets sun and age spots. Other types of skin markings like birthmarks and moles require different treatments.
With the xeo Genesis treatment, you will see remarkable results in removing your sun and age spots. Consult with our staff to see if xeo Genesis is right for you.
