What are Age Spots?

Age Spots : Understanding and Addressing Appearances

Age spots, also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, are flat, brown, grey, or black patches that commonly appear on sun-exposed areas of the skin, like the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. 

They are harmless and don’t pose any health risks.

It’s crucial to consult a dermatologist before undergoing any treatment for age spots. They can confirm the diagnosis, discuss the best options based on your individual case, and address any concerns you may have.

Causes of Age Spots

The primary culprit behind age spots is sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun stimulate the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour. Over time, this excess melanin accumulates and forms age spots.

Other contributing factors include :
Age

As we age, our skin becomes thinner and less efficient at repairing itself, making it more susceptible to sun damage and age spots.

Family history

Genetics play a role, and those with a family history of age spots are more likely to develop them.

Hormonal changes

Fluctuations in hormones, such as during pregnancy or while taking hormonal medications, can contribute to their formation.

Treatment options for Age Spots

It is essential to consult

with our qualified skincare professional to determine eligibility based on individual health and skin conditions.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions :

Age spots are most commonly found on areas of the body that receive significant sun exposure throughout your lifetime. These areas include:

  • Face: Forehead, cheeks, temples, and around the eyes
  • Hands: Backs of hands and forearms
  • Shoulders and upper back: Particularly the areas exposed while wearing tank tops or sleeveless shirts
  • Number of sessions and spacing: The number of treatment sessions and the recommended time frame between them depends on the chosen treatment method and the severity of your age spots. A consultation with your doctor or dermatologist will be necessary to determine the best approach for your individual case.
  • Treatment provider: Age spot treatments are typically performed by licensed healthcare professionals, such as dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, or aestheticians with appropriate training and certification.

Choosing the most suitable treatment for your age spots requires a personalised assessment. During a consultation, a qualified professional will:

  • Evaluate your skin type and the severity of your age spots.
  • Discuss your individual goals and expectations.
  • Explain the different treatment options available and their pros and cons.
  • Recommend the most appropriate treatment based on your specific situation.

Age spots on various areas of the body can be treated with various methods. However, it is crucial to consult a professional to determine if a specific treatment is suitable for the location and depth of your age spots.

The need for anaesthesia depends on the chosen treatment. Some methods, like topical creams or lasers with low settings, might not require any anaesthesia. Conversely, other procedures, like dermabrasion or deeper laser treatments, might require local anaesthesia for numbing the area. Again, your doctor or dermatologist will discuss the specific need for anaesthesia during your consultation.

While age spots are permanent, various treatments can effectively lighten or remove their appearance. These treatments work by targeting the excess melanin production or removing the top layer of skin containing the pigmented cells.

Remember, consulting our qualified healthcare professional is crucial before undergoing any treatment for age spots. They can ensure the safest and most effective approach for your individual needs.
