Liver Spot Treatment

A liver spot is more commonly known as age spots or brown spots are small brown or dark spots on the skin caused by overexposure to the sun. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun or other artificial sources is believed to be the main cause of liver spots. They are associated mainly with old age. Despite the name ‘liver’ spots, they have no attachment to the liver apart from maybe the color at some point. There are numerous ways of removing liver spots but the first very important one is avoiding excessive exposure to the sun especially between 10.00am and 3.00pm when the sun is hottest.

A very common method of liver spot treatment is lemon juice. Lemon juice is good as it acts as a sterilizer and also as a skin toner. It can even be done at home. It is preferred because it has no side effects to the skin. However, for those with sensitive skin, it is advisable to use mild lemon juice. This prevents irritation that would be present when a concentrated solution of lemon juice is used.

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

Hydrogen peroxide is also good in liver spot treatment. When used well, it is very effective in liver spot removal.  It does this by bleaching the liver spots.

Another good liver spot treatment method is liquid nitrogen. It freezes the liver spot and makes the patch peel off like a chemical peel. This method can sting, or leave white marks where the spots were so it’s advisable to talk to a doctor before attempting to apply liquid nitrogen.

Another good method of liver spot treatment is aloe vera gel. This gel is known for its many therapeutic properties and also its good handling of burns. When removing a liver spot, this gel is applied directly onto the skin and left there for about 30 minutes. It is then washed off using cold water.

Laser treatment can also work in liver spot treatment though it is a bit expensive compared to any other liver spot treatment methods. However, this is the best liver spot remover in terms of the good results obtained and the high chances of success.

Safety first! It is very important to note that that when using any liver spot treatment method that involves applying gels or juices to the skin, ensure that the juices do not come to contact with the eyes or other sensitive organs as some of them are acidic and may result in irritation. Consistency is also encouraged to ensure fast results.
