Even though age spots do not have a negative impact on your health, there is no denying that you cannot stand the way they look. Of course, you can cover them with the use of makeup but this is only a temporary solution and it is only a matter of time until your age spots show up again. Therefore, in order to permanently get rid of age spots, there are other solutions too. First and foremost, you should consult a dermatologist and talk out your problem with age spots because it is easier to find the right solution when you get professional help. Be it microdermabrasion, Cryotherapy, chemical peels, medication treatment or natural remedies you can make at home, you will for sure get across this minor problem that you are facing right now.
Microdermabrasion – the budget-friendly solution for age spots removal
Microdermabrasion is a skin treatment that uses an instrument which sprays the skin with tiny mineral crystals. Depending on your type of skin and the size of the age spot, you either can or cannot see immediate improvement in the texture of your skin. This budget-friendly treatment solution not only gets rid of age spots but it can also eliminate early signs of aging. This cosmetic skin treatment helps to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and it also helps acne scars to fade. After getting a couple of microdermabrasion treatments, your skin will look more radiant and this can only happen because the dead skin cells are removed. Moreover, microdermabrasion is great for all skin types and the best part about microdermabrasion treatments is that you will not feel anything in comparison with chemical peels. Of course, you will experience some redness and irritation but that is all.
Cryotherapy – a popular and non-surgical way to improve the appearance of your skin
Cryotherapy, also known as Cryosurgery, is a cosmetic skin treatment that fades skin imperfections by freezing them. This popular skin treatment uses a liquid nitrogen solution which makes the darkened skin exfoliate, thus destroying the cell by freezing the inter-cellular fluid. Cryotherapy is great for many skin conditions such as skin tags, milia and warts but it is mostly used for the removal of age spots. The treatment time ranges from 5 to 30 seconds and besides the fact that it is a quick and safe cosmetic skin treatment, Cryotherapy does not have a lot of side effects.
Chemical peels can work wonders on age spots
Chemical peels are great for pigmentation problems, especially if you have oily skin. This cosmetic skin treatment uses different acids in order to remove the top skin layers, even tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. For example, the lactic acid peel is perfect for age spots as it can penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating new collagen growth. Moreover, the lactic acid is very moisturizing and helps firm and tighten the skin. But besides the lactic acid, there is also the glycolic acid, which evens tone and stimulates new collagen growth. Anyway, if you want to get extraordinary results, you can use a combination of both of them.
