Microdermabrasion helps increase cell turnover and decreases the amount of pigment which can be delivered to the skin cells which can help in an overall regimen for lightening the skin.
Age Spots, Causes and Treatment
Age spots are blemishes on the skin’s surface caused by excessive sun exposure. As we age our skin is subjected to increasing amounts of sun damage. This sun damage will materialize on our skin in a number of ways, including sun or ‘age spots’.
Age spots are those brown discolorations people often see on their face, hands, shoulders, chest and arms. This is particularly the case for people who have spent a good amount of their lives in the sun. This hyperpigmentation, as it is also known, is the result of sun damage caused to the cells of the skin and is most common in lighter skinned people.
Age spots are not caused by aging. If you are out in the sun a great deal, you will develop these brown spots more quickly than an older person who spends no time in the sun.
