Age Spots Concealer
What are Age Spots?
Age Spots are black, brown or grey colour spots that occur in the skin. These skin marks are flat and are usually found on areas of the skin that have been exposed to the sun such as the hands, face, forearms and the upper back. Because of the appearance of these skin marks, many people look to find an age spots concealer. And one super effective product on the market is our very own Veil Cover Cream.
Age Spots are also known as solar lentigines, sun spots, senile lentigo or liver spots. So what causes Age Spots? Age Spots are caused by an excess production of melanin, the pigment in the skin. The exact cause of this isn’t currently known but ageing of the skin, sun exposure and use of UV light tanning beds are all said to be possible causes.
Age Spots are painless and have the same texture as the rest of your skin, they just appear visually different. Despite the name the spots can occur at any age, in any gender or race, however, if you have fair skin, you frequently use tanning beds, you’re over 40 years of age or you like to sit out in the sun a lot, you are more at risk of developing Age Spots.
Treatment for Age Spots are available but they can be invasive & costly
Age Spots are harmless and can be diagnosed by your GP. Many people find that they simply do not like the look of their Age Spots. There are a number of treatments available to permanently remove Age Spots such as Laser removal, a treatment which destroys the cells that produce melanin. Dermabrasion, a treatment which sands off the outer layers of the skin causing new skin to grow. Chemical peels, treatments which burn the outer layers of skin causing new skin to grow. And Cryosurgery, a treatment which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the spots. The downside? Virtually all treatments currently available to treat age spots are all somewhat invasive and they can also be costly.
