Sun spot removal in Portland, OR
Age spots are due more to sunning than aging. These spots—also called sunspots, brown spots or liver spots—are flat, uneven dark patches on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms and other areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. Though usually harmless, these blotchy brownish patches can make you look and feel older than you really are.
In the sun, your body reacts by producing a pigment called melanin to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, your skin may overreact by producing too much melanin. That increased pigmentation can result in age spots, which fall into a broad medical category called "pigmented lesions."
Best Age Spot TreatmentAge spot treatment can vary depending on your preferences. Some doctors may prescribe bleaching creams, which can help spots fade over time. Usually, it takes about six months for such creams to do their job. The downside of bleaching creams is that they make your skin vulnerable to sun damage, thus making you more prone to new age spots. Some people try at-home sun spot removal remedies. However, they usually have a slight effect. Over-the-counter meds are often not as effective as prescription creams. Other options include chemical peels, dermabrasion, cryosurgery, and laser. The age spot treatment cost depends on the procedure you choose. The laser is often the top choice for people, who want a quick and painless dark spot removal method.
How Does Laser Sun Spot Removal Work?The energy delivered by the laser makes dark spots disappear using your body’s natural healing process. Depending on the number, size, and severity of the age spots, you may need three to five procedures for the sun spot laser removal to work. Each procedure usually lasts from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size and depth of the spot. The majority of patients doesn’t require any anesthetic. They go home right after the procedure. After the laser age spot removal, you may experience a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Some patients also notice slight swelling, which lasts two to 24 hours.

what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"

"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
