All You Need to Know About Dark Spots

Dark spots happen to everyone, especially as people get older. While they are generally harmless, no one wants to show their age with hyperpigmentation on their face, hands, and other noticeable areas. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to ward off dark spots and lighten up existing discoloration.

The number one thing you can do to prevent dark spots is to limit your exposure to UV rays. Use sunscreen when you go outside and skip the tanning beds. Some medical conditions and medications are also known to increase your risk of hyperpigmentation, so talk to your doctor for advice.

However, most people will start developing dark spots eventually. The good news is that there are numerous skincare products available to lighten spots and keep your skin tone even. Talk to Colorado dermatology specialists to find the right treatment for you. Over-the-counter and prescription options are available. A good product should contain an active ingredient like glycolic acid or hydroquinone to diminish the spot’s appearance or even eliminate it.

We also offer IPL treatment for hyperpigmentation. IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a great way to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair. Though it is similar to laser treatments, IPL is less focused than a laser and penetrates too deeper layers of skin while causing less damage to your skin overall.

For the vast majority of cases, dark spots are nothing to worry about, medically speaking. However, for some patients, they can be a sign of illness. For your peace of mind, it is good to consult with a dermatologist whenever you notice something new or unusual happening with your skin.

Skin Care Tips for Your 50s

Taking care of your skin during your 50s may call for some significant changes to your routine. Our Colorado dermatology specialists have provided some helpful pieces of advice to help you stay healthy throughout this decade.

Examine Your Skin for Cancer: The risk of cancer increases as you get older. Begin incorporating monthly self-exams to your routine. Maintain a strong relationship with your physician and report any changes you may find.

Use Night Cream: Dry and oily skin may start affecting you now more than ever. Night cream is a heavy skin care product that hydrates and nourishes skin overnight, leaving you feeling refreshed in the morning.

Avoid Highly Fragranced Products: Products with strong fragrances may now start drying out your skin, which causes rashes. Switching to fragrance-free products will allow you to keep treating your skin while minimizing the risk of irritation.

The changes you are encountering in your 50s can turn your normal skin care routine upside-down. Fortunately, your physician and dermatology specialists are here to help. They can work with you to make manageable changes and ensure you stay on the path to healthy skin.

Colorado Skin Care is here to help you maintain healthy skin for life. Contact our clinic today at (303) 740-4883 to schedule a consultation with our dermatologist.
