Liver spots, dark spots, and age spots are all the same thing. Small dark brown or red freckles that show up on the skin and normally appear on the skin during middle age or later on in life. Due to prolonged exposure to the sun and increasing use of tanning beds among young people, age spots have no age limit nowadays and can show up at any age.
Although age spots usually show up on the backs of the hands, they can also be commonly found on the face, as well as the neck and chest area. Having age spots is not a life-threatening condition. However, it’s an aesthetic issue to most people. Removing age spots is possible and, based on their severity, they can be faded with time or even eliminated by using the right products.
Removing Age Spots
There are two methods you can choose from when it comes to removing age spots from your skin. You could try some natural home remedies, or you could book an appointment with a dermatologist for a skin peel, laser therapy, or one of the other treatment options available.
This is a popular method that helps in removing age spots, and also has been proven to be highly effective in doing just that. The process itself involves a machine that produces fine microcrystals, which buff and exfoliate the skin. The cost of undergoing this type of treatment, however, is quite high and more than one session required to see a difference.
A chemical peel is a highly effective method for fading age spots. To complete this process, a solution of lactic acid, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid applied directly to the skin. And, after a few minutes, rinsed off the skin and neutralized. The chemical solution will then cause the skin to peel over time. With time, this results in renewed skin and the dark spots also start to fade. Similar to microdermabrasion, you will need to have more than one session if you want to see a significant difference and experience the desired results.
If you find microdermabrasion and chemical peels too expensive, there are other products you can use to get results. Lightening creams are one option. They help by fading the dark spots, but only if used on a regular basis. Creams formulated with licorice, malic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin A, vitamin K, retinol are very effective in fading age spots.
Lemon juice is a natural skin lightener. And can assist greatly in the fading and lightening of any age spots you have on your hands and face. Lemon contains a skin peeling acid that helps in skin regeneration. Just squeeze some lemon juice into a bowl and apply it to the affected areas twice daily. Continue this treatment for 6-8 weeks and you should start to see your age spots lighten.
