Skin pigmentation, often called age spots, liver spots or sunspots, are often the result of too much sun exposure during your lifetime. In fact, by the age of 50, 90 per cent of fair-skinned people have some age-related spots. Unlike a suntan, however, most people find them unsightly and ageing. Age spots are caused when too much melanin, the pigment in skin, is produced. Melanin production is stimulated by UV light but dark spots can also be caused by damage to the skin or inflammation Sunspots are also known as Solar Lentigines.
These darkened spots on your skin are caused by direct, prolonged exposure to ultra violet (UV) rays. The spots can appear at any age and are usually not harmful. Sunspots affect people with lighter skin most frequently, but anyone can get them. Always check with a dermatologist if you are concerned about any spot on your skin. Once your dermatologist determines that they are not dangerous, there are many options available for treating sunspots.
From natural methods to cosmetic procedures, here are some suggestions on how to get rid of sunspots. Sunspots usually itch when you’re in the sun. To help improve pigmentation as well as age and sun-related spots, we recommend a range of prescription skincare, including the award-winning Obagi range of skincare as well as Epionce Skincare. Obagi is a medically proven and prescribed home use treatment ( though regular monitoring is needed due to some of the products used ). Epionce is a range which is 100% botanical and clinically proven to improve the appearance of skin pigmentation. The first step to a more even skin tone is a complimentary consultation at the clinic.
