What is Age Spot Removal?
Age spots and dark spots are patches of hyperpigmented skin. They can be treated in a number of different ways: laser pigmentation, wrinkle & resurfacing, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and Cosmetic mole removal
The main contributing factors
Sun exposure is the number one cause of hyperpigmentation, as it’s sunlight that triggers the production of melanin in the first place. Melanin acts as your skin’s natural sunscreen by protecting you from harmful UV rays, which is why people tan in the sun. But excessive sun exposure can disrupt this process, leading to hyperpigmentation.
Once dark spots have developed, sun exposure can also exacerbate dark spots by making freckles, age spots, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation spots even darker.
What can you do about hyperpigmentation?
Dermatological treatments – anti-pigmentation procedures
Chemical peels involve applying an acidic solution to the face, hands or feet to remove the surface layers of the skin. These chemicals cause the skin to blister and eventually peel off, revealing new and evenly pigmented skin beneath.
Laser therapies have much the same effect, but tend to be more precise, as the dermatologist has more control over the intensity of the treatment. They involve ‘zapping’ the affected areas with high-energy light. The mildest treatments work just on the skin’s epidermis (surface layer), while more intense treatments can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin.
