They’re referred to by a few names— sunspots, liver spots, or age spots— but what is for sure, is that these dark spots on our skin age us drastically. At Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa
we understand your desire to look and feel your best, so even though some might tell you to overlook a few dark spots on your skin, we’re here to help handle them. Very common in adults over 50, but sun spots also appear in younger people as well, they’re the byproduct of prolonged sun exposure and the melanin becomes gathered in specific areas.
Of course, sun protection is the key to the prevention of sun spots, but even if you do everything correctly, your chances of landing a sunspot are still pretty high. So what can you do to diminish them? Here are a few ideas at your favorite Gilbert med spa.
1.) Chemical Peels
One of the most effective treatments you can use to address age spots is chemical peels
. The treatment is a solution that’s applied by one of our amazing aestheticians, which helps remove the outer layer of skin. Kind of like an eraser for your complexion, the chemical peel provides a glow and helps with wrinkles and other blemishes.
Want to see a big difference on your skin quickly? Dermaplaning is a painless treatment that takes a matter of minutes, but with incredible results. Performed by one of our talented aestheticians, dermaplaning is the act of using a scalpel to gently scrape the dead skin from your skin. This provided a more even complexion and permits your skincare products to go deeper in the skin.
One of the reasons why age spots darken as we age is that there’s a lack of new cells being created, one way to aid this is with a process called microneedling
. The treatment starts with a topical numbing agent, then with a pen containing several very tiny needles which then are injected into the skin, creating collagen induction channels. These small ‘injuries’ made to the face causes the body to start a healing process, where collagen is sent and ultimately leads to more youthful-looking skin.
