Bleeding Age Spots

Age spots are dark, usually brown blemish that is found on the skin and is mainly associated with aging. Age spots are caused by overexposure to the sun. Ultraviolet rays from the sun are the cause of the age spots. However, they are more common with elderly people hence the name age spots.

The skin has a layer of melanin. This is the dark pigment that gives color to the skin. It is also a protective pigment of the skin. When the skin is overexposed to the sun, more melanin is produced by the body to protect it from the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

As one grows old, the small bits of melanin naturally clamp together and form dark patches that are known as age spots. The symptoms are worsened by tanning beds and genetics in some cases but the main culprit when it comes to agespots is the ultraviolet rays from the sun. They may start bleeding if the blood vessels in the dermis become fragile and break and hence become very uncomfortable.

When it comes to handling such, there are several methods that would be considered to be favorable and effective in removal.

The first method of removing these is freezing the bleeding age spots using liquid nitrogen. This is a good method since after using it, the patches peel off like a chemical peel. However, it is advisable to seek advice from a doctor first before starting the use of the liquid nitrogen as it does not always work well with all types of skins. It might also leave white spots where the bleeding age spots were.

The other method of removing bleeding age spots is laser treatment. This is a bit expensive compared to the other method but it is the best in terms of its good results obtained and also the high chances of success involved with it.

Castor oil is very good for treating bleeding age spots. Its application results in a more evenly pigmented skin, thus removing the bleeding age spots. It is recommended that it is applied on the affected area before going to bed and removed after waking up. It is advisable to use odorless or sweet smelling castor oil as some may have a smell that is not very attractive.

For bleeding age spots, it is important to first wipe off any blood present on the skin surface before applying anything on the skin as it may hinder the action on the bleeding age spots.
