Solar Lentigo Removal

Solar lentigo is also known as sun-induced freckles and is similar to age spots in more ways than one. It is mainly caused by direct exposure to either artificial or natural ultraviolet (UV) rays and affects people between 30 to 50 years old. If an individual, especially with a lighter or white skin, is exposed directly and excessively to the sun’s UV rays, chances are that he/she will develop solar lentigo. This is one of the skin conditions that most people find both embarrassing and annoying. In fact some people have resigned to the fact that this skin problem has no known remedy and wish they would cover their faces or other exposed parts affected by solar lentigo. If you are one of such people who have given up, you need to realize that there are countless methods that you can employ so that those spots or freckles on your skin become a thin of the past.

 

Some remedies for solar lentigo removal are home-made while others would require medication or use of laser treatment. It is upon you to do thorough research and proper consultation with your dermatologist in order to identify one that would effectively remove solar lentigo from your skin. Freezing the affected body parts gently and carefully with liquid of nitrogen may go a long way in fading those brown or black spots. Some people have tried the use of bleach cream containing hydroquinone and it has done wonders on their skin. You may try this cream though it may not be effective on every skin.

 

In the event that you are not able to access the above solar lentigo removal options, zinc can make a good alternative. It is recommended that you take 15 mg (and not more than this) of zinc daily for about two months. There are numerous testimonies of people who had solar lentigo but used fresh lemon juice to remove the blemishes from their smooth skin. This fresh lemon juice needs to be applied twice a day and the user should ensure that his/her skin is not exposed to the sun until the juice is completely dry.

Whereas there are effective remedies for removing solar lentigo, it is easier to prevent it than to completely treat it. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight between 9am to 3pm and wear clothes that will protect you from direct exposure if you want to avoid age spots.
