How to remove age spots on the face and body?
How to remove age spots on the face at home – this question we most often ask ourselves, standing in front of a mirror, after the summer beach season.
Or maybe you still need to visit professionals for removal? But more often than not, our decision depends on how quickly we want to remove age spots and whether we want to get rid of the spots permanently.
Dark spots on the face are a normal response of the skin to sun exposure.
After prolonged sunbathing, fair skin is often covered with freckles. Sometimes they are small, almost invisible. And sometimes they become large age spots.
Recently, dermatologists are increasingly talking about the dangers of ultraviolet rays, especially for sensitive and fair skin. A large amount of ultraviolet radiation can cause not only the formation of age spots on the face and body, but also serious burns of the epidermis.
Despite the fact that in many countries freckles are a makeup trend, many people still dream of getting rid of them forever.
For the removal of solar pigmentation to be painless and effective, we recommend that you rely only on experienced doctors.

The reasons for the appearance of age spots:
Pigmentation on the face and body most often occurs as a result of a long walk on a sunny day. The reason for the formation of age spots and freckles is the interaction of the sun and various substances:
- The composition of some medicinal ointments, when interacting with the sun, can give a photoallergic reaction. These include: diuretics, antifungals, contraceptives, diabetic drugs, and even antibiotics.
- An insufficient amount of melanin and prolonged exposure to the sun provokes a burn. This is the death of the upper layer of the epidermis. In this case, the skin can suffer from uneven distribution of melanin. As a result, age spots and freckles appear.
- Cosmetical tools. Oddly enough, intense tanning products can cause spots and freckles to form. This mainly depends on the predisposition. For example, red hair and fair skin are 100% prone to freckles and spots.
- Internal failure of the body. Age spots do not always appear due to the sun. This may be evidence of hormonal imbalance and various reactions in the body. Most of all, pigmentation treatment worries pregnant women, children and the elderly.
When do age spots appear most often?
Most often, spots appear after the beach season and prolonged exposure to the active sun. Pigmentation occurs when melanin is not evenly distributed in the skin. When melanin is severely lacking, the tan lays on the skin locally, in patches.
How to remove age spots at home?
You can remove age spots at home in different ways. We do not recommend the use of harsh whitening complexes, as they can cause severe burns.
- Anti-age cream.
Pigment cream usually has a pronounced antifungal and anti-inflammatory effect. A whitening cream is prescribed for extensive pigmentation, seborrhea, acne and rosacea.
- Synthomycin ointment.
Ointment based on the antibiotic synthomycin effectively treats pigmentation, freckles, acne and comedones at home.
- Zinc paste.
If you want to remove pronounced spots and freckles after sunburn, pay attention to zinc paste. Zinc oxide and salicylic acid are excellent at whitening skin and treating pigmentation.
- Whitening masks.
Anti-pigmentation whitening masks do an excellent job with minor freckles, blemishes, and post-acne when used daily at home. They differ in absolute harmlessness, but even not even a significant effect will have to wait 1-2 weeks.
- Hydrogen peroxide.
The use of hydrogen peroxide is only suitable for people whose skin is prone to oily. If the skin type is dry, then hydrogen peroxide will not remove pigmentation, but will intensify the rash.
Please note that home remedies for pigmentation are ineffective and expensive. Some formulations are hormonal. We do not recommend self-medication, and a dermatologist will better select a pigmentation cream.
How to remove age spots permanently?
The best remedy for pigment spots is the symbiosis of an experienced dermatologist and modern hardware technology.
Pigmentation treatment will pass quickly and retain a long-lasting effect if you choose the correct procedure and follow the doctor’s prescription.
