About Spots Therapy
Ageing is a natural process, and just like the rest of the body, our skin undergoes many changes as we age. For one, it loses its elasticity and ability to renew itself. So you might begin to see fine lines and sagging skin. You might also start noticing small dark spots on areas like the face, décolletage, shoulders and arms. These are called age spots.
Age spots are fairly common amongst those above 50 years, but also appear on younger skin that has received a lot of sun exposure. They are pretty harmless, but are considered to be aesthetically unappealing, and a lot of people wish to remove them for cosmetic reasons.
Let us look at Age Spots, its causes and treatment in more detail.
Chemical peels are a very popular option for removal of age spots, for those who do not wish to go down the laser treatment way. They are great for cases where the age spots are lighter. They are specially formulated to gently remove the outer layer of old skin, and reveal lighter, natural new skin beneath.
Apart from age spots, chemical peels also help in achieving smoother, even toned skin.
The Fraxel Laser is a novel approach to treat age spots, reduce fine lines and pores and improve overall skin texture. This “fractional” way to laser skin resurfacing works by creating “micro-wounds” which kickstart the natural wound healing process, and results in the formation of new essential cell growth factors to replace damaged skin. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and is known to be safe (with well understood risk profile) and effective. Unlike some other treatments which may leave your face pink and swollen, the best part of this is that it requires little or no downtime so you can get back to your routine without a break.
At Nitai, we’ve been using this approach since many years, and our happy clients are testimony to the effectiveness of this treatment. This is also a good treatment to sustain your skin’s youthfulness over a longer period.
Apart from these treatments, we recommend that you commit yourself to a regular skin care regime as prescribed by our cosmetologists and clinicians. Some simple habits like the daily use of a sunscreen can protect the skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure, and thus help prevent the appearance of further age spots. Also, using skin care products enriched with Vitamins like A, C and E can also promote good skin health and prevent the appearance of age spots.
Age spots removal will allow you to have flawless and blemish-free skin, and can help improve skin tone and complexion.
