What causes age spots?

Age spot treatment in London

Age spots come in multiple sizes and colours (usually brown-black) and are mostly found on skin areas exposed to the sun. They are a form of pigmented lesions and are also known as solar lentigines and lentigo senilis. Although they are called age spots by name, the age spots will have stemmed from sun damage.
The size of the age spots will vary from small freckles up to 2 cm or more in diameter. They may join together in places. Age spots are harmless, and the main reason people want them removed is cosmetic.


Suitable Treatments

Age spot treatments

Age spots are one of those conditions that can be treated by various methods with varying degrees of success. Some treatments will fade the age spots with each treatment session, whilst other methods will completely remove the blemish. A consultation will help decide your case’s best course of action. Although more than one treatment session may be required, treating age spots is regarded as a ‘quick win’ in aesthetic medicine and reducing age spots is a very effective way to present a younger appearance.


What causes age spots?

As with many skin conditions, the exact causes are not 100% fully understood. The evidence points towards Melanocytes (melanin-producing cells) thought to be damaged by the sun into the overproduction of melanin. This excess melanin then binds together to form clumps, forming what we know as an age spot. There are a few other factors that probably play a part as to whether or not you will suffer from age spots. One is genetic predisposition; another is age-related skin structure changes. The amount of sun exposure is most likely to be the main factor.

If you have age spots, book a consultation to see how we can help. If you are in doubt, then you should get the lesion checked out by a professional to rule out the prospect of something more serious.
