What Are Sun Spots?

Many people ask, “what do liver spots look like?” The answer is that they often look similar to freckles, especially when it comes to liver spots on the face. Unlike freckles, however, age spots won’t fade, though they do look similar. Liver spots look like flat areas that are darker in pigmentation than the surrounding skin. They are usually brown in color but can range from light tan to very dark brown. They can be very small or reach diameters of up to a ½-inch. Many people have a grouping of liver spots in one area, which makes them more noticeable. Fortunately, there are some liver spots treatment options that can help you control and fade the spots you already have. At the same time, good prevention techniques will help you avoid getting any more age spots.

What Causes

SUN SPOTS?

Liver spots are a form of pigmentation, which occurs when melanin production speeds up. Melanin is what gives your skin color, but when it’s produced more quickly than usual, it causes age spots. UV light is the most common cause of this, which means that sun exposure and tanning beds are the most common causes of liver spots on the skin. While anyone can experience age spots, some individuals are at a higher risk. That includes those who have light skin and those who have spent a lot of time outdoors or who have had several sunburns during their lifetime.

Our Treatment Solution for
SUN SPOTS

The first step in choosing a treatment for the liver spots on your skin is to have them diagnosed by a dermatologist. This involves a visual inspection of your body, which allows your doctor to ensure that you’re dealing with age spots and not another skin disorder. A biopsy may be performed to make sure the spots are, in fact, liver spots.

Once they have been diagnosed, we suggest treating the spots with Laser or Light therapy. This involves aiming pulsed light at the spots, which will fade them after a couple of sessions. Another version of light therapy uses ablative technology to remove the top layers of skin, taking the pigmentation with them. Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion are treatment options that effectively slough off the top few layers of your skin, which destroys the excess pigment, resulting in lighter age spots. These methods might even remove mild liver spots altogether. Similar to dermabrasion and microdermabrasion, a chemical peel also works to remove several layers of your epidermis, lightning or removing age spots on your face and body.

Keep in mind that treatment for age spots is generally considered cosmetic and isn’t usually covered by your insurance. These liver spot treatment options are done on an outpatient procedure and don’t require hospitalization. Results should appear in several weeks to months, depending on the one you choose.

How to Prevent

SUN SPOTS?

Whether you already have age spots or not, you can take steps to prevent them from occurring or getting worse. The single best way to avoid age spots is to practice good sun safety techniques.

Wearing SPF sunscreen on any exposed skin, anytime you plan to be outside. You must reapply every 2 hours or after getting out of the water, so a single application isn’t enough.

Avoiding the sun between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, whenever possible. This is when the sun is the highest and brightest and has the most potential to cause skin damage.

When you are outside, wearing tightly woven clothing to cover your skin is another good choice.

A hat and clothing with UPF protection are other simple ways to protect your skin from age spots.

I’ve been getting the aqua infusion treatments done the last three months and have seen great changes in my skin. I’ve also tried my fair share of products and can’t stress enough about how my skin is always glowing. I highly recommend this place to friends and family and start listening to professionals and not influencers.

Had my first oxygen infusion facial and my skin is very hydrated instantly. Also, the skin analysis technology did warn me about the skin getting drier due to age which I always considered as oily skin. Highly recommend.
