The most common area for age spots to develop is in the face. Age spots are areas of skin pigmentation that darken as a result from a collection of melanin that accumulates over time as the skin is exposed to ultraviolet sun rays. Age spots usually appear gradually over time and depending on skin type and sun worshiping habits usually wait to materialize until those middle age years. Although age spots can develop at any age, they are more apt to occur with people who have fair skin and tend to burn easily.
Over exposure to the sun thorough the years without adequate protection from sunscreen accelerates the skin's natural aging process. Sun damaged skin is a cumulative process that occurs gradually over decades. Most people have, wished that they had been more careful about using sunscreen and protecting their skin from the sun throughout the years. Since our faces get the most sun in our daily lives, it is important to wear a sunscreen even own our face. Look for a facial lotion that has SPF15 in it.
There are several different methods of treating age spots. The most efficient form of treatment is Laser treatment, skin whiting creams, and other skincare treatment like microdermabrasion and chemical peels can also help reduce the appearance.
Laser treatment is generally very effective at removing age, liver, sun or brown spots on the skin and face. It is the treatment of choice for these spots, in fact. The treatment may require two or more sessions to completely remove the spots depending on how many there are and on which area of the body.
Laser removal of age spots is permanent, however people do sometimes see new spots appear as they go back out into the sun. These are new spots forming as a result of age spots, not a recurrence of the old, removed spots. Good sun-avoidance is key if you wish to see your skin free of sun spots.
Creams and Lotions
Find yourself a good anti-aging skin care system. I recommend Artistry Time defiance collection. It is a top five prestige skincare product around the world. I started using it two years ago and my skin looks better now than it did in my younger years.
You can also use a skin whiting agent to help reduce the appearance of age spots on the face. I also recommend using a microdermabrasion system over a chemical peel because it is less abrasive to the skin.
