Age Spot Removal Options With Modern Medical Technology

May 30, 2008
To have the clearest and healthiest looking skin is of course a goal that many of us have. Who wouldn't want clear and radiant skin well into old age? There are now a number of options to remove unwanted marks and blemishes from the skin as they appear throughout a lifetime. Since the skin is the one bodily organ which receives the most weathering from the elements, maintaining it and taking good care of it is important.

Age spot removal is an option which helps to remove marks which are largely due to exposure to the elements, in particular the sun. Liver marks or age spots often occur as we age and are related to not only the elements but also our skin type. Some skin types tend to accumulate more melanin in areas which are exposed to light. Over the years, our skin receives a lot of sun contact and sometimes this contact is purposeful and others by accident. It is thus important to be aware of how much sun your skin is receiving. Depending on the part of the world you live in and what the climate is, exposure to bright sun may not occur predominantly throughout the year. It is still crucial however to be aware of the skin and to wear sunscreen since the sun does not necessarily have to be shining brightly to affect the skin. Rather, on overcast days, the skin can still be damaged by the rays of the sun which are still present in the atmosphere. With this in mind, being aware of how much sun one receives is important. Getting sun is not necessarily a bad thing either. The sun provides us with much needed Vitamin D by jump starting our body's production of the nutrient. So getting sun is not necessarily going to negatively impact our health, but overexposing the skin can result in unsightly marks and blemishes over time which can tend to increase and become more difficult to remove.

There are number of ways to perform age spot removal and a dermatologist in your area is one of the best places to find out more about what options are available to you. Obviously patients ought to seek out a dermatologist that they feel comfortable with and that is experienced. Even doing some research prior to an office visit is a good idea to help the patient get an idea of what options are available. Currently there are less invasive to more invasive and less expensive to more expensive treatment options available. Patients can opt to use creams and gels which contain certain acids which promote cell turnover, lightening the skin and removing spots. Such treatments are generally effective for various types of marks and not just age spot removal. These are some of the least invasive options but should be used with care as they can cause irritation and can cause redness in the skin if overused. Age spot removal can also be performed using ipl fotofacial treatments, or the use of a high frequency light to eradicate dark marks. Laser treatments have also been used. It is best to consult with a trusted dermatologist to discuss what treatment options may work best for your skin type and situation.
