Age spots are also common in adults over the age of 40 with light skin tones but may also develop and those younger. Hyperpigmentation, such as the appearance of age spots, can occur more frequently as we age. The appearance of these marks is due to a combination of natural aging and frequent sun exposure. While many people rush toward the skincare aisle when their skin begins to look subpar, the truth is that most over-the-counter treatments are simply ineffective. At Neighborhood Wellness Clinic, we provide laser skincare solutions to help address your skin issue and improve your look. If you’re ready to give our laser treatment a try, we welcome you to schedule a consultation at our New Braunfels location.
Most age spots are harmless and do not require treatment, though some do require further evaluation. Their color and shape can quickly identify these spots. In most cases, these signs of hyperpigmentation tend to be flat, oval in shape, and usually darker than your skin tone. They generally appear on areas of your body that have been exposed the most to the sun. These areas include the backs of your hands, the tops of your feet, your face, and your shoulders. They can range in size, from small freckle dots to being about half an inch in diameter. Age spots often group, making them more noticeable.
Age spots are prevented by limiting sun exposure and protecting the skin at all times when exposed. Wearing sunscreen at all times can help reduce the appearance of spots due to too much sun exposure. We also recommend wearing protective clothing such as hats and remembering to protect skin even when sun damage does not appear to be a risk, such as on a cloudy day or while driving. The occasional dark spot, as well as melasma and sun damage on your face, is in equal parts due to melanin clumping and ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Some age spots can take a long time to develop, while others can appear seemingly overnight. However, with a bit of help from our team, you can get rid of these spots after they’ve appeared.
