Age spots, more commonly known as liver spots, are common occurrences in those pesky places associated with aging – like the face, hands, arms and shoulders. These spots arise due to excess melanin accumulation, or natural skin pigment, in specific areas and appear as flat brown marks. Despite their harmless nature, many people seek techniques such as lasers or chemical peels to reduce their severity for aesthetic reasons. Whatever protection you choose for your skin against premature aging and its associated unsightly spots is an important part of your personal skincare routine.
WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS?
The sun is the main culprit of age spots, which are most commonly found on areas that have had frequent and prolonged sun exposure over many years. It is believed to be caused by long-term exposure to UV light, resulting in an accumulation of melanin in these areas. Taking key steps to protect yourself from the sun’s ultraviolet rays can help reduce your risk of developing age spots. You should avoid going out during peak sunlight hours, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF rating, and consider wearing clothing meant to provide UV protection – such as a hat and long sleeves. By following these simple tips and developing good sun care habits, you can help keep dreaded age spots at bay for longer.
HOW CAN AGE SPOTS BE TREATED?
Fortunately, they can be safely and effectively treated with laser or IPL treatment that offer visible results after just one session. These treatments are highly recommended as alternatives to microdermabrasion and chemical peels for addressing age spots, sun spots, liver spots, freckles and melasma. To get the best outcomes from these treatments, it is advised that you visit trusted experts in dermatology who can accurately tailor a prescription to suit your individual needs. The procedure typically takes between 15-30 minutes and can be described as feeling like a warm elastic band snapping against the skin – though this varies depending on how sensitive your skin is.
