Smart Cover and How to Deal with Age Spots

If you have a fair to medium complexion and you’re over 40, you’ve probably had to deal with age spots, according to Healthline.com. Also known as sun spots, senile lentigo, solar lentigines—or worst of all, liver spots—age spots are often the result of too much exposure to ultraviolet rays. This can occur if you spend a lot of time outside without protecting yourself from the sun, or if you’re a tanning bed enthusiast.

The best way to deal with age spots is to prevent them, of course. Whether your complexion is fair, medium or deep, ultra-violet rays can be harmful. Never go out in the sun without applying SPF 30. Also, remember that wide-brimmed hats are your friends! Generally, age spots are not dangerous or painful, but always show your doctor anything new that appears on your skin during your annual checkup.

How to Deal with Age Spots

Mayoclinic.org offers several potential solutions if you are determined to get rid of your age spots, though results often vary. There are lightening creams available by prescription. These may make your skin even more vulnerable to harmful UV rays.

“Laser and intense pulsed light therapies destroy melanin-producing cells (melanocytes) without damaging the skin’s surface,” but this requires at least two or three sessions and it’s not cheap. Other treatments include chemical peels, dermabrasion, and even cryotherapy.
