Look Younger With Age Spot Treatment

As you get older, and your skin gets more mottled by exposure to the sun and elements, age spot treatment begins to look more and more appealing. No one wants to look like a patchwork of light and dark spots. We all want to have smooth, even skin thats pleasing to the eye and to the touch, and there are a lot of products out there that purport to reduce or erase age spots. Which ones work, and which ones are just glorified moisturizers with some skin bleaching additives?

First of all, for really effective age spot removal, you should always consult with the professionals. Dermatologists and skin care experts can help you understand how the treatments they offer work and what to expect from them. For example, dermabrasion treatments were first developed to remove tattoos, as well as dark liver and age spots. The problem with dermabrasion, though, is that it doesnt work well for people with darker skin tones. It can result in scarring and/or discoloration.

Fortunately, there are alternatives. Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that works on any skin type or color. A fine mist of crystals is sprayed at the skin, gently buffing away the top layer of damaged and dead skin cells. After just one or two microdermabrasion sessions, youll notice those age spots and discolorations fading away. Microdermabrasion is not good for removing scars or deep discolorations, though.

A chemical peel, in which the top layers of skin are chemically exfoliated, scrubbed away on a microscopic level, is another great treatment for age spots and discolorations. If milder treatments like these arent working for you, your doctor may recommend laser treatment.

Laser treatment for age spots will take several visits, over an extended period of time, and you wont see results immediately. This is because laser removal of skin discolorations works the same way that laser tattoo removal works. The pulses of laser are aimed at the discolored area. This breaks the discolored cells up into tiny fragments. Your immune system goes to work on them and washes them away. This means that you wont see an immediate change, but you will be sure to see results by the end of your treatments.

If you want younger, smoother, more even skin, and you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Colleyville and Southlake area, look around in Colleyville and Fort Worth for age spot treatment specialists who can help you.
