Have you noticed small, flat, dark areas on your skin? Pesky age spots are dark dots on the skin caused by sun exposure over time.
If you want to eliminate your age spots, most over-the-counter lightening creams will only slightly make them less noticeable. Anti-aging procedures that remove surface layers of discolored skin often work better than a lightening cream.
Here are the best anti-aging treatments to tackle age spots. We offer the following services at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona.
A specialized chemical solution is used to lift the outer layer of old, dead skin during a chemical peel. Chemical peels will gradually fade your age spots. New skin appears with fewer age spots and less pigmentation.
Chemical peels are also a popular aging skin treatment to tackle acne, fine lines, sun damage, and scarring.
Microneedling can also help eliminate pesky age spots. This chemical-free anti-aging treatment induces the body to heal itself naturally. Microneedling for age spots works exceptionally well because the process helps break up melanin in the skin.
You may also want to consider Scarlet SRF, which is a next-generation short-pulse radio frequency (SRF) treatment that works to target lines, wrinkles, acne, scarring, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
The Plasma Pen is another highly effective solution to age spots. During treatment, the tool superficially burns spots on the skin’s surface to reveal clear skin beneath. The unique thing about the Plasma Pen is that you can also use it to treat age spots on other areas of the body, not just the face.
The Plasma Pen can also diminish forehead lines, remove skin tags or sunspots, erase acne scars, and tighten the area around the eyelids.
Dermaplaning is another safe, non-invasive anti-aging treatment that removes dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the skin. Dermaplaning can help fade age spots and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermaplaning leaves the skin looking and feeling more refreshed and rejuvenated.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Anti-aging treatments will vary from person to person. Depending on the severity of your age spots and your ultimate goals, you may need one or more of the treatments mentioned above. However, only one treatment is required with the Plasma Pen in most cases.
Prevent New Age Spots
Aging skin treatments work wonders to eliminate age spots you already have. With that being said, it’s best to prevent new spots from forming. So amp up your sun safety routine and practice sun safety habits like wearing a hat, staying out of direct sunlight during powerful hours, and constantly using a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Regardless of which treatment direction you decide on, the most important factor is consistency. Seeing us on a regular basis will help you achieve your skincare goals sooner and keep you looking your absolute best.
