How to prevent age spots

How to prevent age spots

Old age spots are generally not harmful in any way, so there is no therapeutic reason as such to remove them. But since they can convey a person’s age, many women and men like to get rid of them for cosmetic reasons, to look young and beautiful.  

Causes of age spots

Age spots are caused by extra production of melanin. They may also be caused by skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet light exposure, such as tanning beds. You are most likely to have age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including:

  • your face
  • the back of your hands
  • your shoulders
  • your forearms

  Symptoms of age spots

Age spots:

  • vary from light brown to black in colour
  • have the same smoothness as the rest of your skin
  • are painless
  • are usually on sun-exposed areas of the skin

Diagnose age spots

Your doctor will usually detect age spots by looking at your skin. If your doctor is concerned that a dark area is not an age spot, he may do a biopsy. A small piece of skin will be removed and checked for cancer or other anomalies.  

Getting rid of age spots

You can diminish, lessen or remove age spots by using a number of different methods, such as using home remedies, skin-bleaching products, OTC and prescription products, or using professional age spot skin treatments. However, if you can defend your skin from ultraviolet light, by avoiding the sun and using sunscreen – you might be able to prevent age spots and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance. But if you go out habitually for extended periods without any sunscreen, you will probably get them early in life.
