Sun, liver and age spots are conditions that usually appear in later years on the surface of the skin. These are all caused by an excess concentration of melanin in a particular area, the pigment which determines our hair and skin colour.

Liver spots are flat brown-black spots that usually occur in sun-exposed areas of the body. Liver spots, also called age spots, lentigines or lentigos, are sharply defined, rounded, brown or black, flat patches of skin. The epidermis (top surface layer) is expanding with more pigment, developing what looks like a large freckle. One may appear by itself, or as a few clustered together. They are unrelated to the liver or liver function. Many people have a hereditary predisposition to them. While liver spots may develop at an early age, even in childhood, they are more common in older people, especially those who have spent too much time in the sun. F.A.Q

Melanin absorbs the light energy during a VPLâ„¢ treatment and heats up quickly, whilst the surrounding skin remains cool. This rapid heating helps break up the concentration of excess melanin into smaller particles that are then removed by the body’s natural waste processes. Imperfections are reduced and skin texture and tone is improved.
