A modern medical laser system for skin treatments. Dr. med. Heidi Dötterer-Rieg treats the patient with various diode lasers, Erbium-YAG laser, laser with fractionated handpiece, KTP laser and ruby laser.
A young hand holds an older hand. The young hand has a macellous healthy skin. The older hand is covered with age spots. Age spots can be removed with ruby lasers lasting and pain-free.

Removing Age Spots and Tattoos

Age spots are the result of exposure to solar irradiation

Many people from the age of 40 know about them: so-called age spots. They are brown-pigmented spots that are not elevated. These age spots are the result of exposure to solar irradiation, to which we are exposed over the course of our lives. For this reason, age spots occur only at locations that are regularly exposed to the sun, such as the back of hands, face, neck and forearms. The brown-pigmented spots on the skin are often bothersome, because they stand out very strongly at the aforementioned parts of the body.

The spots are caused by UV radiation. Over the years, the solar irradiation causes the pigment cells to increase. Reinforced pigments then form in the epidermis, which are visible as brown age spots.

The spots are usually harmless and occur in 90% of all people!

Removing age spots

With our ruby ​​laser with a wavelength of 694 nm, good results can be achieved gently and in a short period of time. The treatment is virtually painless. The patient usually feels only a slight tingling or burning. The beam of the laser penetrates through the surrounding tissues and only takes its effect in the pigment. A plasma forms that receives the further laser radiation, whereby the pigments are "broken up" into smaller particles as a result. Natural pigment changes such as age spots can often very successfully be removed in a very short period of time, usually within one to two sessions.
