Facial Age Spot Removal

Age spots are a common appearance on people who have undergone years of sun exposure that results in skin damage. These spots, also referred to as liver spots, are blemishes found on the skin where the complexion is darker in certain areas. Age also plays a role in the development of these liver spots. This occurs because the skin has lost its elasticity and skin cells are no longer getting renewed. People most likely to suffer from this skin condition are in their 40’s or much older. There are various ways to go about facial age spot removal. Minor liver spots that are not too dark can be cleared away by use of a facial bleaching cream that has hydroquinone. This can be purchased over the counter though a doctor can be consulted to make sure the right product is acquired. Lightly apply the cream on the age spots to reduce the dark shade and lighten the spots.

 

There are other alternative methods that can be applied. Since bleaching creams may sometimes contain harsh chemicals that may react negatively with the skin when used for a long period of time, natural products are highly recommended. Creams made from ingredients that consist of vitamins and antioxidants are highly beneficial as well as effective in age spot removal. Creams that have Vitamins A and C have been known to clear out the blemishes and bring about an even, smooth skin texture. Such creams are usually applied after cleaning the face, typically with a facial wash. Products that contain zinc and selenium minerals work well in getting rid of age spots too. Most doctors may also recommend a cream that has a retinoid or even chemical peels to remove liver spots. These both work to exfoliate the skin thus lighten the dark spots. Be sure to use prescribed creams in such a case to avoid products that can be otherwise damaging.

 

Homemade removal remedies have been used for years and they are very helpful. Fruits and vegetables that have an acidic concentration are generally used. The juice of such foods can be applied as a wash or cut out slices of the same can be placed on affected areas of the face. Either method of treatment is effective but, they both require consistency. This is the only sure way to draw desired results.

 

Laser therapy and cryotherapy are other medical alternatives to facial age spot removal. The former works to break up the skin pigment that darkens age spots while the latter is a freezing method that uses liquid nitrogen. Laser therapy is good on both minor and major age spots while cryotherapy works best on solitary liver spots.
