How to Get Rid of Dark Spots on Your Face?

Dark spots or age spots are small, flat, dark areas on the skin. They vary in size and mostly appear on areas of the skin that are exposed to sunlight. Common places are the face, hands, shoulders, and arms.

If you have light skin and spend a lot of time in the sun, you are more likely to develop age spots. It is a common affliction for those 50 and older, but younger people can get them if they spend a lot of time in the sun.

It is easy to confuse age spots with cancerous growths, but actual age spots do not need treatment. Dark spots indicate excessive sun exposure because their formation shows the skin is trying to protect itself.

Treatments for Dark Spots

An excellent treatment to get rid of dark spots is LightRx’s skin rejuvenation treatments. We have many ways to get rid of dark spots on the face or body. After evaluation, a combination of treatments may often be recommended depending on your skin type, age, and goals.

At LightRx, we use four different types of technology for skin rejuvenation. Venus Viva, Venus Glow, Sofwave, and Aerolase Neo Elite. Depending on your goals, they can be used individually or in combination.

Facial Rejuvenation to Get Rid of Dark Spots

Venus Viva

Venus Viva is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to improve the overall texture of your skin by addressing common issues like wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring, and stretch marks.

Venus Glow

Venus Glow is a facial rejuvenation treatment that opens up pores to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities. It uses a three-pronged approach that deep cleans pores and eliminates impurities. It can be used alone or in combination with other devices.


Sofwave works like other non-invasive skin tightening treatments by heating the skin and activating the body’s natural healing process to regenerate collagen. What stands out is that Sofwave uses a unique Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ that delivers heat to the correct skin depth at 1.5mm in the mid dermis.

Sofwave also has an integrated cooling system designed to protect the top layer of skin from burning. Once heated, the treatment areas activate the body’s natural healing process to increase and regenerate collagen in the skin.

The result is the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Aerolase Neo Elite

Aerolase Neo Elite is a medical device that treats all types of skin conditions. The Aerolase Neo Elite uses a medical laser to treat everything from loose and wrinkled skin to acne, dark spots, acne scarring, and more.


The Aerolase Neo Elite is a 650-microsecond technology that is naturally attracted to the skin’s melanin, hemoglobin, and water. The Aerolase Neo Elite is safe, gentle on the skin, and effective for all skin tones and types – the most advanced laser skin treatment we have available.
