Solar Lentigines Removal

Solar lentigines (singular lentigo) also known as age spots are small pigmented and very narrow muscles that are surrounded by normal appearing skin. They are caused by Ultraviolet rays from the sun or other artificial sources. Solar lentigines removal can be done in a number of ways that will be discussed in this article but first, prevention is better than cure hence it is of great importance to avoid further damage so if possible, avoiding excessive exposure of the skin to sunlight especially between 10.00p.m and 3.00p.m would be very crucial since the ultraviolet rays from the sun are the main cause of these lentigines.

Now back to solar lentigines or age spotss removal. One method used is applying lemon juice on the lentigines. The juice should be preferably freshly prepared. Here, the lentigo is dabbed gently using a piece of cloth and it is expected that in around two months, the spots should have disappeared. Another one would be the use of apple cider vinegar together with onion juice. The mixture of the two is applied directly on the solar lentigines and within six weeks, they should have left.

Vitamin E oil is also good in age spots removal. This helps in reducing the color of the spots hence reducing their visibility. Other bleach creams like hydroquinone may also be used in reducing the color of the lentigines, but some of them might not work effectively with some people so it is advisable to exercise caution when handling such. Liquid nitrogen can also be used to freeze the area with the lentigo. This has a soothing effect and also helps in solar lentigines removal.

Another very widely used and also effective method of solar lentigines and age spot removal is application of aloe vera gel directly on the lentigines. Aloe vera is known to be good in healing burns and its many healing properties. Fresh juice or gel extracted from the plant is rubbed on the age spots twice a day for a period of about a month or two and it is expected that by the end of the period, the patches would be no more.

Castor oil is another method of solar lentigines removal that works very effectively. It works best when applied on the spots twice per day, i.e. in the mornings and in evenings. However, it is advisable to use castor oil that is sweet smelling or odorless since some are known to have not so attractive smells.

When using the above methods of solar lentigines removal, it is important to ensure that consistency is kept since the results are faster compared to random irregular attempts.

Be safe! It is important to note that some of these creams and juices are acidic, for example lemon juice and would cause very painful stings when they come to contact with the eyes, sensitive skin or other sensitive organs so when applying them around such organs, be very careful.
