What is an Age Spot?

Age spots are flat, brown, grey or black spots in the skin. They usually occur on areas that have been exposed to the sun. Age spots are also called liver spots, senile lentigines, solar lentigines or sun spots.

The Concept

The Accurett device treats age spots successfully in one treatment using a high pressure micro-fine jet of cryogen with millimeter accuracy. Liquid CO2 freezes the water in the cell forcing the cell to expand destroying the cell membrane.

The Treatment

Accurett treatment takes seconds to complete and causes very little discomfort with amazing results in just one go.

The Results

After approximately 2 weeks of healing time, the age spots will have disappeared, leaving new blemish free skin. Your skin will be completely healed within 1-2 months.

After-care

It's simple, just keep it dry and use a high SPF once it's healed.

Q & A: Frequently asked questions

How does it work?

Cryotherapy is the controlled destruction of unwanted tissue by the precise application of extreme cold. The goal is to freeze the skin growth as quickly as possible, and then let it thaw slowly to cause maximum destruction of the skin cells.

Does it hurt?

The freezing process causes a slight stinging sensation.

How do I know if it's an age spot?

Age spots are flat, brown, grey, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on areas that have been exposed to the sun. If you are unsure please seek medical advice before proceeding with the treatment.

What will it look like after the treatment?

Immediately after treatment you will notice that the area reddens. Over the next few weeks the area will darken into a scab and will come away of its own accord. The new skin cells underneath will be pink for a few weeks but will fade back to normal.

What after-care do I need to use?

The after-care is simple, just keep it dry and once it's healed protect with a high SPF. Make-up can be worn - a mineral based make-up will be best.

Some considerations:

  • You must be over 18.
  • You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You will not be able to go to the gym or swim immediately after the treatments.
