Whether you call them brown spots, age spots, or sun spots, these instances of hyperpigmentation on your skin are a mark of aging that most of us would just as soon do without. Even if you’re careful about your sun exposure now, years of time out in the sun take their toll as we age, While its tough to stop age spots from forming, finding out how to remove age spots is easier, especially with laser resurfacing technology and other aesthetic solutions from Behr Laser & Skin Care Center. If you’ve been struggling with how to get rid of age spots, we can help.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
Why Do I Have Age Spots?
Your skin contains melanin, which is what gives it its color. Normally, this melanin is evenly distributed, but as UV rays penetrate your skin over time, they can cause melanin to clump and pool. When this happens, the result is the dark patches known as age spots. Whether you have a few age spots or a lot, whether they are spread out or concentrated in one area, whether they have worsened over time or popped up seemingly out of nowhere, we at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center can offer solutions.
What Are the Signs?
Age spots differ from melanoma or other skin conditions in that they usually retain a generally oval shape and do not undergo extreme color changes. They are typically darker than your normal skin tone and may further darken over time. These spots tend to be flat and vary in size from freckle-sized to half-an-inch or so around. These and other signs of hyperpigmentation commonly appear on areas with the most sun exposure, like the face, hands, and arms.
