Are you concerned about the appearance of your complexion? Does it feel like your skin tone is uneven or impacted by too much time in the sun? Age spots and sun damage are two common experiences that often results in spots or discoloration on the skin. However, there are a variety of aesthetic procedures to promote refreshed, even skin. Learn more about these conditions and discover your treatment options during a consultation with us at The Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL!
What Are Age Spots?
Age spots are flat spots that naturally develop over time and appearance on the skin. They are often black, brown, or tan in color. They may occur on most areas of the body, but areas frequently exposed to the sun may have a heightened risk.
Common areas impacted by age spots include:
These spots are also known as liver spots. While they may be a result of time in the sun, they may not pose a risk to health.
What Is Sun Damage?
Sun damage often occurs as brown or black spots on the skin, resulting in an uneven pigmentation. While it may feel like a sunburn only causes temporary damage or discomfort to the skin, it may have a lasting effect on the skin.
Sun damage occurs as a result of overexposure ultraviolet rays (UV rays). UV rays impact deeper layers of the skin, causing permanent damage or killing cells. One of the best ways to help manage or reduce your risk of sun damage is regular application of sunscreen and limiting your time in the sun.
How Could They Be Treated?
Just as each person and their skin are unique, blemishes are also unique. However, there are a range of non-surgical, non-invasive treatment options to target these skin imperfections. Potential treatment options may include:
- Chemical peels
- Exfoliating treatments
- Laser resurfacing treatments
- …and more!
Each of these treatments offers unique benefits. Certain treatments may be more effective for instances of age spots or sun damage than others. To determine which of these treatments may be right for you, we recommend a consultation with our professionals in Santa Rosa Beach. During this consultation, they will evaluate your skin, discuss your health and experiences, and provide you with treatment options.
