There are different perspectives to aging around the world, and many benefits that come with the gift of time. However, age spots don’t tend to be one of those benefits, and being able to age gracefully is something we have come to appreciate as a society.
One sure sign of aging is age spots. These brown formations on the skin do not have the appearance of cute freckles, but rather are discoloured spots most want to avoid.
Age spots (also known as liver spots) are caused by hyper pigmentation of the skin due to exposure to the sun over the years. Not everyone is predisposition for such things, but many fall prey to the effects of sun damage. Whether it’s premature aging, or visible spots, the sun is something you will want to guard yourself against if you want to slow down the visible aging process.
At Azure Skin Care, our aim is to help our clients hold back the hands of time with treatments that can diminish the aging appearance, and help you maintain a youthful glow that still remains natural.
Some of the ways we do this is by providing services such as…
A microdermabrasion treatment uses abrasive material and a vacuum to safely and effectively remove the upper dead skin layer of skin. We use the Pristine Microdermabrasion System to treat our clients, which offers diamond tips to gently scrape away dead skin. The system is fully adjustable to provide the perfect settings for each client, and after this gentle exfoliation treatment, an appropriate serum and a mask are applied to soothe and replenish your new, age spot free skin.
A series of light chemical peels are a great way to treat uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and poor hydration. Our peels require no downtime, and are an excellent way to achieve radiant and renewed skin
In addition, we have various skincare products and laser treatments than can greatly reduce or even eliminate age spots, while decreasing the appearance of aging overall.
Other ways you can help keep age spots at bay is by increasing your antioxidant intake, staying out of the sun – or at the very minimum, ensuring you are utilizing sunscreen, and eating a largely raw diet. Your inner health is reflected in your outer appearance as well, so keep that in mind when considering what to consume on a day to day basis.
