Treatment results and Before and after pictures
Age spot treatments at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre are highly effective and designed to significantly reduce the visibility of age spots, improving your skin’s overall appearance.
- Following the age spot treatments with Laser, you can expect your skin to lighten gradually over several weeks, with age spots fading and becoming less noticeable.
- Other aging signs will also improve, such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Bear in mind that results vary for each individual, and the success of the treatment depends on factors such as the severity and size of the age spots, the specific treatment used, and your skin’s response to treatment. Some individuals may notice a considerable difference after just one session, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.
Real Client Reviews and Testimonials
I had an excellent experience with Albany Centre for lip fillers. Moreover, the team was so welcoming, and the results were just what I wanted. My lips look natural but bigger and with a heart in the middle!
I recently had Botox treatment at Albany Clinic for my frown. I'm really happy with the results. Moreofer, the staff was friendly and professional, making me feel at ease throughout the procedure. They use freezing cream and leave it long enough to work. So I highly recommed them!
I'm very happy with the results of the laser hair removal at Albany Centre. The procedure was quick and comfortable. I did not feel rushed, and provided me with many towels to change. So, I recommend them to anyone.

What are Age Spots?
Age spots, also known as liver spots, are small, flat dark areas on the skin.
- They vary in size and typically appear on areas most exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms.
- Age spots are common in adults over 50, but younger people can get them, especially if they spend much time in the sun.
What Causes Age Spots In Edmonton?
Age spots are primarily caused by long-term exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays or artificial UV light sources like tanning lamps. The pigment in the upper layer of skin (melanin) increases with UV exposure, causing areas of the skin to darken.
