We tend to subject our skin to a great deal of abuse. In our younger years, we spend hours on end in the sun without protecting ourselves from UV rays. As we grow older, we rely heavily on fast food and pre-packaged snacks rather than the fresh fruits and vegetables our skin needs for proper nourishment. Many of us forgo water for the tastier, more caffeinated beverages, leaving our skin dehydrated and in need of moisture. Moisturisers and gentle cleansers are often considered an option rather than a necessity.
Of course, these transgressions catch up with us as the years go by. One of the most common telltale symptoms of lax skin care is the appearance of age spots. Though they usually come to light after the age of 40, they can mottle the face, arms and shoulders of those who are younger. Plenty of over-the-counter creams and serums claim to lighten these discoloured specks, but many hopeful customers are left disappointed with their effects.
The Best Medical Spa Charleston, SC offers a number of truly effective treatment options for age spots. Clinical grade bleaching creams are a viable solution for some while more in-depth procedures are required for others. One innovative new treatment, known as Palomar, uses lasers to gently eliminate fine lines, minimize scars and reduce wrinkles while also fading age spots and encouraging skin to heal itself to a certain degree. This is a pain free procedure with no down time.
Glycolic peels help lighten age spots with the use of a mild fruit acid. This procedure also requires no down time, and it is safe and effective for all skin types. Chemical peels offered by the Best Medical Spa Charleston, SC are slightly more harsh, leaving slight irritation and taking about 3 to 5 days for the outer layer of skin to peel. Once this does occur, the fresh, younger skin beneath is revealed.
Microdermabrasion is also a popular treatment for diminishing wrinkles and age spots. This procedure removes the outermost layer of skin using a rough surface and vacuums it away, fading lines, some scars and age spots. For pricing information or to schedule a consultation, Contact Ageless Rx.
