Best Treatment For Age Spots

Age marks (also called age spots, liver spots or solar lentigines) are small dark areas on the skin that can make those affected look (and feel) much older than they really are. Age spots usually vary in size, can appear on various parts of the body, and are more common in adults over 50, but younger people can also get them.

We at Transforming Image, offer the best treatment for age spots to anyone who wants to remove these marks quickly and without pain.

What Causes Age Marks?

Despite popular belief (and their very name), age spots are usually caused by overexposure to the sun. Pigment cells go into overdrive due to ultraviolet (UV) light, which causes the production of melanin in the skin to accelerate.

Skin areas that have frequently been exposed to the sun tend to develop age spots when melanin is produced in high concentrations and gets “clumped” in specific areas. They can also appear due to the use of commercial tanning lamps and tanning beds.

Where Do Age Marks Usually Appear?

On areas of the skin that are most exposed to the sun, including:

  • Face (usually nose)
  • Upper back
  • Back of the hands
  • Forearms
  • Shoulders
