Top Five Age Spot Remedies

Though they usually are not a sign of a serious health problem, people commonly want to get rid of age spots. They can make you look older than you feel and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Fortunately, if you are wanting to rid yourself of age spots, there are several age spot remedies to choose from. Here is a list of the top five age spot remedies in no particular order:

1. Natural Age Spot Remedies

If you ask an older member of your family, it is likely that she will know the “best” way to fade spots at home. While many of these methods are old wives’ tales, there are some at-home treatments that do work for some people. Vitamin E oil and olive oil are both excellent for restoring skin’s youthful appearance. For some people, applying fresh cut lemon slices is another way of reducing the appearance of dark spots.

 

2. Bleaching Creams For Age Spots

Bleaching creams for the skin are available over-the-counter and by prescription. The prescription creams are generally the most effective because they are stronger than the products sold over-the-counter. When applied regularly, they can fade discolorations on the skin.

 

3. Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a procedure in which an acid is applied to remove the outermost layer of the skin, allowing new, healthy skin to grow in its place. This method can be very effective, but it often takes multiple peels to fade dark spots completely. Chemical peels are performed by medical professionals. If not done properly, they can lead to permanent skin damage and scarring.

 

4. Dermabrasion

The way dermabrasion works is similar to a chemical peel. Instead of using an acid to remove the outer layer of skin, however, it is done with a rapidly rotating brush. Dermabrasion and chemical peels both tend to cause scabbing and redness until the skin heals, but the results are more reliable than bleaching creams and at-home remedies.

 

5. Age Spot Removal With Laser Therapy

Lasers have proven to be effective in many applications, including age spot removal. In fact, they are seen as one of the best age spot remedies available. Using a small, handheld device, a doctor can use a precise beam of laser energy to actually destroy the cells that are responsible for producing pigment. It may take multiple sessions, but, in time, the dark spots will break apart and be absorbed by your body. Laser treatments are highly effective and do not damage the surrounding tissue.
