AGE SPOTS / PIGMENTATION

BECAUSE FLAWLESS SKIN IS IN

WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS / PIGMENTATION?

'AGE SPOTS', ALSO REFERRED TO AS BROWN SPOTS, LIVER SPOTS, SUN SPOTS, OR LENTIGOS, ARE FLAT PATCHES OF PIGMENTED SKIN.

TYPICALLY, THEY ARE CAUSED BY UVA SUNLIGHT WHICH STIMULATES CELLS CALLED 'MELANOCYTES' TO PRODUCE A PIGMENT CALLED 'MELANIN'. MELANIN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR GIVING PEOPLE THEIR SKIN COLOUR - FOR EXAMPLE, DARK-SKINNED PEOPLE NATURALLY HAVE HIGHER LEVELS OF MELANIN IN THEIR SKIN THAN LIGHTER-SKINNED PEOPLE.

AGE SPOTS, ALTHOUGH MOST COMMONLY BROWN, CAN ALSO BE RED OR ALMOST BLACK. 

TRUE 'AGE SPOTS' TEND TO OCCUR IN THOSE AGED 40+, BUT CAN APPEAR IN YOUNGER PEOPLE WHO SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN THE SUN.

AGE SPOTS ARE HARMLESS. HOWEVER, ANY NEW DISCOLOURATION - ESPECIALLY IF IT IS VERY DARK, RAISED, WITH UNEVEN EDGES AND / OR LARGER THAN 2.5MM IN DIAMETER OUGHT TO BE ASSESSED BY YOUR OWN GENERAL PRACTITIONER. 

HOW CAN THEY BE TREATED?

AGE SPOTS & PIGMENTATION RESPOND VERY WELL TO MEDICAL PEELS.

MEDICAL PEELS STRIP BACK THE TOP LAYER OF SKIN, REVEALING THE SMOOTHER - AND LESS PIGMENTED - SKIN UNDERNEATH.
