BEAUTY: AGE SPOTS CAN BE EASILY TREATED

 

BEAUTY: AGE SPOTS CAN BE EASILY TREATED. Dr. Joshua Fox, medical director at Advanced Dermatology and founder of the New Age Skin Research Foundation, a nonprofit health organization aiming to provide expert educational resources to the public and physicians: “Everyone knows it: Age spots on our skin make us appear many years older than our true ages. Age spots are flat, light or dark brown marks that develop on the skin as we age. They appear mainly on areas exposed most to the sun, including the face, hands, shoulders and arms. Often, once you start to see age spots, you’ll also see other signs of sun damage, including deep wrinkles; dry, rough skin; fine red veins; and thinner, more translucent-looking skin. If you notice any new mark on your skin, or if an existing mark has any changes in color or shape, your doctor will determine if it is cancerous or something to be concerned about. The good news is that most brown spots are not harmful and can be removed or easily treated to improve the skin’s appearance and make you look younger.”
