What are Age Spots and How to Remove Them?

What are Age Spots?

Age spots can be defined as flat, small dark spots or areas on the skin. These spots or areas usually vary in their size and generally appear in the skin areas that experience higher or prolonged sun exposure, such as hands, face, arms and shoulders. Age spots are also commonly termed liver posts, solar lentigines or sunspots.

These age spots are commonly observed among adults over 50 years. Sometimes, even younger people can get sunspots if they spend prolonged hours exposed to the sun.

Age spots can sometimes appear like cancerous skin growths. In general, age spots don’t need any medical treatment as they are harmless, and a way for your skin to protect itself from getting damaged due to higher sun exposure.

However, they affect the flawless and smooth aesthetic appearance of your skin. With advanced and cost-effective non-surgical cosmetic age spots removal treatments, these age spots could be removed or lightened to provide radiant and smooth skin.

Regular use of sunscreen and avoiding unnecessary sun exposure is the best way to prevent the formation of age spots.

Types of age spots removal treatment

Here are the top cosmetic treatments for effective age spots removal.

Microdermabrasion

microdermabrasion is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for effective age spots removal. It helps to remove the mild skin blemishes and provide a smoother skin appearance.

This treatment involves the use of a minimally abrasive device that gently sands or exfoliates the skin to remove the uneven, thicker, dead outer layer of the skin to reveal the healthy skin underneath.

This skin rejuvenation treatment can effectively treat skin discolouration, light scarring, stretch marks and sun damage.

Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which usually declines with age, this results in the growth of new healthy skin tissues. These healthy skin tissues help to diminish the age spots and provide you with a smooth and youthful complexion.

The patient has to undergo a set of cosmetic procedures spread over a few months to achieve visible results. The patient may experience a stinging sensation or slight redness in the treated area post microdermabrasion treatment. However, it is temporary and usually goes away within a few days of treatment. The skin specialist recommends the right medications to manage these temporary effects of the treatment.

The patient begins to experience positive skin rejuvenation results and comprehensive reductions in the age spots within a few days of treatment.

Fraxel laser

Fraxel laser is considered the gold standard in laser resurfacing treatments for skin rejuvenation.

Fraxel laser is a non-surgical non-invasive cosmetic treatment for skin rejuvenation that involves the use of microscopic lasers which are focused on targeted areas of the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin – the protein-rich growth factors of new healthy skin tissues.

These microscopic lasers penetrate the top layer of the skin to create minute wounds in the targeted area. This stimulates a natural healing reaction from the skin which facilitates the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, new healthy skin tissues form on the top layer of the skin.

The production of healthy skin tissues eliminates various skin concerns like age spots, sun spots, pigmentation and scarring. The skin becomes tighter, smooth er, radiant and you achieve a youthful facial appearance.

For best results, Fraxel laser treatment has to be conducted by a qualified Laser specialist, with TGA & FDA approved laser device and under controlled circumstances. Therefore, you need to ensure you consult an experienced skin specialist for Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatment.

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is a popular treatment for effective age spots removal. It is a good alternative for people who don’t wish to go under the laser for age spots removal and skin rejuvenation.

A chemical peel is also called derma peeling or chemexfoliation. In this treatment a TGA & FDA approved chemical solution is applied to the facial skin to improve its overall aesthetic appearance. This secure chemical solution exfoliates the skin to remove the thick, dead top layer of the skin and reveal the healthy skin underneath.

This process stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which results in the growth of healthy skin tissues. The new skin tissues help to greatly diminish and eliminate various skin concerns like age spots, sun damage and pigmentation. The skin becomes smoother and healthier, and you achieve a flawless youthful facial appearance.  A chemical peel is a secure and effective method of age spots removal with minimal or no side effects.
