What Causes Age Spots?
Age Spots are caused by overactive pigment cells due to ultraviolet light speeding up melanin production. Melanin is the natural pigment that gives skin colour. On skin that has years of sun exposure, this melanin can appear in the form of age spots, especially when the pigment is concentrated in clumps. .
What are Sunspots?
Sunspots are dark or discoloured spots on the skin that are caused by years of prolonged sun exposure, especially due to a lack of SPF application.
What are Liver Spots?
Liver spots appear as flat brown or black spots on areas of the skin exposed to the sun. They actually have nothing to do with the liver and are often referred to as age spots or freckles.
Age Spots Signs and Symptoms
Some signs that you have age spots or may have age spots in the future include:
- Flat, oval-shaped areas of concentrated hyperpigmentation.
- Spots on the skin turning darker.
- Extensive unprotected sun exposure.
- Freckles increasing in size.
- Brown spots grouping together.
Age Spots Risk Factors
Age spots can be associated with melanoma or other health conditions, but they can also be harmless. It is best to see a doctor or age spot expert if your spots:
- Turn black.
- Increase in size.
- Have an odd shape.
- Have a combination of pigmentation.
- Are bleeding.
Age Spots Treatment Options
DLK on Avenue offers various facial rejuvenation and anti-aging skin treatments that can reduce the appearance of age spots. These treatments range from IPL to chemical peels and will be catered entirely to your preferences and goals. We generally recommend an IPL treatment to reduce the appearance of age spots and brown spots, but it is best to book a consultation with the DLK team to learn about the best plan of action for you.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (also known as IPL Treatment or Photorejuvenation) uses intense pulses of light to heat up the skin. This stimulates collagen production and remodelling. The superficial part of the skin is spared, so there is no injury to the outer layers of the skin. As a result, there is little or no downtime.
IPL is a safe and effective treatment with no recovery time. Patients can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Treatment is usually very well tolerated and takes about 20 minutes.
