Age Spots Skin Care Treatment

Age spots are flat, brown, grey, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas of the skin. Age spots are also called solar lentigo, or sun spots.

Age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all causes. You’re most likely to develop age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including:

  • your face
  • the back of your hands
  • your shoulders
  • your upper back
  • your forearms

People of any age, sex, or race can develop age spots. However, age spots are more common in people with certain risk factors. These include:

  • being older than 40 years old
  • having fair skin
  • having a history of frequent sun exposure
  • having a history of frequent tanning bed use

Book Your Consultation

Age Spots :

  • range from being light brown to black in colour
  • have the same texture as the rest of your skin
  • are painless
  • are usually on sun-exposed areas of the skin

Age Spots can be treated with :

  • Topical skincare treatments
  • laser treatment to destroy the cells that produce melanin
  • chemical peels to burn the outer layer of your skin, allowing new skin to grow in its place
  • dermabrasion, which sands off the outer layers of the skin so new skin can grow in its place

Always wear sunscreen after treatment to protect your healing skin from UV damage.
