Age Spots Removal
Age spots, also known as sunspots, liver spots, solar lentigines, or lentigo senilis, are flat, oval, or round blemishes on the skin, which are tan, brown, or black in color, and usually appear on the areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as face, shoulders, arms, and hands.
Age spots are not harmful to health but can be a cosmetic concern for some people.
How To Treat Age Spots?
At Elegancy Beauty Bar, we provide different treatment such as Cryotherapy, Laser, and Chemical peel. These procedures target the melanin in the age spots, which causes them to fade.
How Age Spots Forms?
Age spots are caused by the accumulation of melanin, which is a pigment produced by melanocytes present in the skin. Melanin is produced by the skin to protect it from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Prolonged exposure to the sun causes the skin to produce excess melanin, which causes the formation of age spots.
Age spots are more common in people over the age of 50, and the risk of developing age spots increases with age. People with fair skin, blond or red hair, and light-colored eyes are more prone to developing age spots.
How To Prevent Age Spots?
Prevention of age spots involves minimizing exposure to the sun and using broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. People should also wear protective clothing, such as long-sleeved shirts, hats, and sunglasses, to shield the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
It is important to consult a healthcare professional before undergoing any cosmetic treatment for age spots to determine the best course of action and to ensure safety and efficacy.
