Erase The Effects Of Sun & Age Spots

Did you know that the sun is one of the leading causes of damage to skin? Prolonged exposure can lead to sun spots, which are dark, discolored patches of skin on the face, neck, arms, shoulder, and back. Sun spots are most likely to affect adults age 40 and over because sun spots can take many years to develop. However, people can develop them at just about any time of life. This is why skin care in Sewell, NJ is something that everyone should take seriously. Esthetic services, such as microdermabrasion or sun and age spot treatment from the experts at Dermatology Center of Washington Township are excellent solutions to combating these unsightly marks.

Improve Your Skin’s Health & Appearance

Patients with sun and age spots can enjoy revitalized skin in as little as one appointment. We offer innovative Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy treatment. Here is how it works:

  1. The treatment device emits a carefully calibrated pulse of light to the affected area.
  2. The technician aims the therapeutic light at all of the treatment areas for just the right amount of time.
  3. After the appointment, the sun damage or age spots on the affected area will begin to flake off.
  4. A follow-up appointment may be required to fully restore the skin’s appearance.

What Makes Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy Different?

Unlike many other skin spot reduction treatments, the Xeo Genesis system is extremely safe and may cause only minimal discomfort to the patient. No gels, creams, or ointments are required to facilitate the rejuvenation process, either. Healthy skin will emerge in a matter of days following your appointment so you can see the effectiveness of this system for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions


What areas can be treated?

Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.

What does the treatment do?

The visible light delivered by the Xeo Genesis procedure is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented cells that causes the therapeutic effect.

Is it true that I’ll need to arrive an hour early to apply a numbing cream?

No. Unlike other systems, the Xeo Genesis treatment requires no anesthetic creams or gels before treatment. Gel is messy, time consuming, and uncomfortable. Xeo Genesis therapy is the next generation in pulsed light treatments. No gel!

What do treatments feel like?

When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.

How long will the treatment take?

The actual treatment will only take a few minutes. And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit into your lunch hour.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots or for densely covered areas.

How safe are these treatments?

Very! Both the CoolGlide® Xeo and Genesis Plus systems have been FDA cleared. They have been rigorously tested in clinical studies. The pulsed light handpieces we re designed to treat only pigment, not the surrounding skin or tissue.

What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?

Immediately following the treatment, the spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Will the spots reappear over time?

No. New spots may appear. These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots.

Can all of my spots be treated this way?

Spots formed by sun exposure can effectively be treated with the Xeo Genesis procedure. There are, however, other types of pigmented lesions, such as birthmarks and moles. Consult with your medical professional to identify the spots most likely to respond well to Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy.
