Age Spots

Age spots are related to sun exposure and while they do become more common with age, they are not directly caused by ageing. Older individuals who have protected their skin from UV rays by wearing UV protection sunscreen and protective clothing are less likely to develop age spots. Similar to pigmentation, age spots are brown in colour because they are formed due to the concentration of melanin at that spot.

Due to the skin producing more amounts of melanin upon exposure to UV rays, sun exposure is the number one cause of age spots. Consequently, these are prominent in skin areas that have high exposure to the sun such as the face, back of the hands and forearms.

Both men and women are affected by the sun to develop sun spots or liver spots as they may be known sometimes.
Mostly they are no more than of aesthetic concern, in some cases, they may develop to be cancerous over time. Cancerous lesions may appear irrespective of age. Statistics show Skin Cancer kills more women under 30 years of age than any other form of cancer.

The use of indoor tanning beds also accelerates the formation of age spots. It is also seen that there is a 75% increase in melanoma risk among those who used tanning booths in their teens and twenties.

I have been a Client of Anu’s for 15 years. All of her services are delivered with the upmost of safety and professionalism and the equipment is top quality. All facial skin treatments, laser hair removal and products have been very successful. I would be nervous going anywhere else and I highly recommend Laser Genesis.

I have been seeing Anu for my skin care for a little over a year now. Along, with being high knowledgeable, Anu spends a great deal of personal time and investment with her clients to ensure their skin care goals are met. One of her most amazing qualities is that she only recommends what she feels you need. Anu is extremely honest with the outcomes of all procedures and what expectations one should have for their unique skin type. I trust her a great deal and have always had a wonderful experience with her.
