  • AGE & SKIN SPOTS DESCRIPTION

    AGE RELATED SKIN DISCOLORATIONS

    As people age, unsightly blemishes, commonly called age spots, can appear on the face and on the back of the hands. The spots are also known as entigines, lentigos or liver spots. They are sharply defined, rounded, brown or black, flat patches of skin. Age spots are often referred to as liver spots, solar lentigo, lentigo senils, old age spot, and senile freckle. They are blemishes on the the skin associated with aging and exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. They range in color from light brown to red or black ad are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms and forehead, and the scalp if bald.

    The spots derive their name from the fact that they were once incorrectly believed to be caused by liver problems, but they are physiologically unrelated to the liver, save for a similar color. From the age of 40 onward the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure, and liver spots are very common in this age group, particularly in those who spend time in the sun.

    In the vast majority of cases, liver spots pose no threat and require no treatment, though they occasionally have been known to obscure the detection of skin cancer. However, despite being a benign condition, liver spots are sometimes considered unsightly and some people choose to have them removed. This can be done by electrosurgery, laser treatment or cryotherapy.





    AGE & SKIN SPOTS FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

    GENERAL APPEARANCES

  • Flat, brown spots on hands, neck, face and other parts of the body as it ages.



  • skin spots and freckles


    SKIN SPOTS (FRECKLES)

    How can one tiny freckle turn into several freckles, seemingly overnight? Why do age spots appear suddenly, after years of spot-free skin? The answer is simple: increased melanin, a black or brown pigment in the skin, hair and eyes.

    While hereditary primarily determines our skin's general condition, hormonal changes also affect melanin levels, which is why many people notice changes in skin pigmentation as they age. Over exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays is also one of the strongest contributors to irregular skin tones. In most people, skin irregularities show up as darkened spots, as with freckles, moles and age spots. White spots will appear where there is a lack of skin pigmentation; vitiligo, an autoimmune disease that affects pigment-carrying skin cells, is an example of this reverse pigmentation. Another skin tone irregularity is red facial blotching; this is usually caused by increased blood flow in the skin or by dilation of superficial capillaries, as is the case with rosacia. Any skin changes, however, may indicate skin cancer and warrant a health care provider's visit.




    age spots


    AGE SPOTS (LIVER SPOTS)

    Age spots are flat brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body as it ages. They are also called liver spots. Most age spots appear on the face, neck, and hands. These brown spots in themselves are harmless, but they can be a sign of more serious buildup of wastes known as lipofuscin accumulation, a byproduct of free radical damage in skin cells. These spots actually signs that the cells are full of the type of accumulated wastes that slowly destroy the body's cells, including brain and liver cells. They are a surface sign of free radical intoxication of the body that may affect many internal structures as well, including the heart muscle and the retina.





    AGE & SKIN SPOT CAUSES

    FORMATION FACTORS

    Factors that lead to the formation of skin spots (freckles) include:
    • Primarily heredity.
    • Overexposure to ultraviolet rays (another significant factor).
    Factors that lead to the formation of age spots include:
    • Poor diet.
    • Lack of exercise.
    • Smoking.
    • Poor liver function.
    • Ingestion of oxidized oils over a period of time.
    • Excessive sun exposure (primary factor). Exposure to the sun causes the development of free radicals that may damage the skin. Most people who have significant numbers of age spots have lived in sunny climates or otherwise had excessive sun exposure.
    The formation of lipofuscin is associated with a deficiency of a number of important nutrients, including vitamin E, selenium, glutathione, chromium, and dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE). Consuming alcohol increases lipofuscin formation.





    AGE & SKIN SPOT TREATMENT

    AVOIDING PROLONGED UV EXPOSURE

    Your best defense against skin spots is to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, especially when it causes skin to burn, can inflame the skin, stimulate pigment-carrying skin cells and increase the risk of skin cancer. Also, ultraviolet rays deepen the color of freckles and may promote age spots. Sunburns can be averted by avoiding long-term exposure to the sun, wear sunglasses and a hat, and always use sunblock or sunscreen. People may want to treat age spots because of physical, emotional and social reasons, including improved appearance, enhanced self esteem, and promotion of better skin health,


    SUN PROTECTION

    One of the first and most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. For the most complete sun protection use Sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. A SPF of 30 or higher is better. Apply sunscreen generously by filling the hollow of your palm (about 1/2 teaspoon) with sunscreen to coat the face, neck, and ears. Apply two coats from the amount squeezed out to make sure you are well covered. Then reapply every two hours, or more often if you are swimming or perspiring. Sunscreen stops working in less than 3 hours, so reapplication is key. For easy touchups, a powder sunscreen can be useful and has a light touch. Using a sunscreen with a light tint of color in it can help to smooth out skin blotchiness and color while providing protection. It also helps to reduce the amount of makeup used on the skin. Some sunscreens have a low level of self-tanning tint to them.

    Stay in the shade as much as possible. Avoid sunlight between 10 am and 2 pm, when the sun's rays are strongest. Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing, which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays.

    Avoid sunbathing and tanning beds. They damage the skin, causing skin discolorations and spots while intensely raising the risk of skin cancer.

    Sunscreen is not just for summertime. Winter sun, combined with snow glare, can still damage your skin. Try applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and your hands if they are exposed about 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply frequently if you stay outside a long time.


    CHECK FREQUENTLY FOR CHANGES

    Any variation in freckles, moles or discoloration on your skin should be carefully monitored, especially if anyone in your family has had skin cancer. Moles are particularly susceptible and are often cancerous. Watch for changes in color and size. Have someone examine your back, checking for irregularities there.

    GIVE YOUR SKIN A BREAK

    If you do sunbathe, expose your skin gradually to the sun, say 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Skin cells are often damaged after extended sun exposure. Although the skin has amazing self-healing abilities and can repair minor damage caused by ultraviolet rays, you should rest your skin for 20 to 24 hours after sunbathing.

    TONE THE SKIN WITH PLANT ACIDS

    Plant acids, specifically Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), are popular ingredients in skin products recommended for acne, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and age spots. AHA-enhanced lotions and creams are available in different strengths - the more AHA, the greater the risk of drying and inflaming the skin. People with naturally dry or sensitive skin should look for a lower-strength product and apply it only every 2 to 3 days.





    CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL TREATMENT CONSIDERATIONS

    PREVENTION & PROTECTION

    The best way to deal with age spots or skin discolorations is not to get them to begin with. Prevention and protection may involve a well-balanced diet with sufficient folic acid and other important nutrients, prevent sunburn and overexposure to the sun, avoiding using tanning beds and dressing to prevent skin exposure to sun rays throughout all seasons, not just summer. This includes wearing hats, tightly woven natural fabrics and long sleeves and pant legs and using a high SPF sunscreen/sunblock to prevent damage from UVA and UVB rays.

  • Sunscreen and Sunblock is important for everyone, especially for fair skinned individuals, babies through seniors. To prevent over exposure to the sun's rays, use a minimum SPF 15 Sunblock-Sunscreen lotion for the face. For total protection, an SPF 35 or higher is better. It is particularly important to cover young children to prevent them from sun damage later in life. Sunscreen and sunblock will need to be applied every two hours to revitalize protection. More often if sweating or swimming. Special attention should be paid to ears, nose, neck and shoulders and the exposed scalp on the top of the head unless a protective hat is worn at all times.

    TOPICAL TREATMENTS

    Some people can see an improvement in age spots with a topical prescription. The two most widely prescribed topical treatments are hydroquinone (a prescription bleaching cream) or tretinoin (a prescription acne cream). However, patients should consult with an ASDS dermatologist since what works for one individual may not work for another. When used daily, topical solutions cause brown spots to fade over time.
    • Tretinoin. The prescription drug tretinoin (retinoic acid, Renova, or Retin-A) is a vitamin A medication being used for age spots with good results. Retin-A is a cream that is applied to the spots once a day for six months, causing larger age spots to lighten and smaller ones to disappear. While the cream fades discoloration, it stimulates the growth of new, healthy cells. They are often used with prescription-strength hydroquinone for a stronger bleaching effect. However, retinoids can be drying and harsh for some skin types, and it will take two to three months to see results.

    • Alpha Hydroxyacid gel and Beta Hydroxyacid gel. These gels are applied to the spots every night and will lighten discoloration of the skin. Over-the-counter moisturizers containing 2 percent hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, will gradually lighten age spots over a few months. They work best when used in conjunction with glycolic acid moisturizer, which smooths out the skin. However, it will take a few months to see a difference, and they do not have much effect on darker, more stubborn spots.
    As with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, though they are minimized in the hands of a qualified ASDS dermatologist. These include pain, swelling, bleeding, scarring, crusting, discoloration, and infection.

    Topical treatments can average $50 to $200. Since treating age spots is considered a cosmetic procedure, the medication often is not covered by most medical insurance companies.

    Before prescribing the medication, an ASDS dermatologist will usually review the patientís medical history and conduct a physical exam. This is the time for the health practitioner and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the treatment. Patients may have to apply topical treatments for several months before seeing results.

    DERMABRASION

    Dermabrasion is the surgical sanding or planing of the outer layer of skin of age spots. The treated area typically appears smoother and refreshed. Outcomes can be dramatic and long-lasting. As with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, though they are minimized in the hands of a qualified ASDS dermatologist. These include:
    • Scarring.
    • Redness.
    • Swelling.
    • Loss of skin color.
    • Tissue damage.
    • Infection.
    The estimated cost of dermabrasion age spot treatments can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the extent of treatment. Since most medical insurance companies consider dermabrasion a cosmetic procedure, it is generally not covered.

    Before the procedure, a dermatologist will usually review the patient's medical history and conduct a physical exam. This is the time for the health practitioner and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. A week or so before treatment, dermabrasion candidates should:
    • Stop taking certain medications, such as aspirin.
    • Stop smoking, if a smoker.
    • Avoid certain skin care products.
    • Avoid sun exposure.
    > The treated area must be cleansed several times a day, and ointments and dressings changed. Patients must continue to avoid sun exposure. New growth is expected within five to eight days, with skin fading to normal tones within six to eight weeks. Pain and swelling from treatment is usually minimal. Choose a dermatologic surgeon qualified to evaluate and select the best treatment choice based on the individual patientís condition.

    CHEMICAL PEELS

    A chemical peel such as an Alpha Hydroxyacid Peels, is one of the fastest ways to treat age spots. It involves putting a mild acid on the skin and then allowing it to heal. Dermatologists may use an administered chemical peels with a 30 to 70 percent glycolic acid to remove hyperpigmented skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Chemical peels improve the appearance of age spots by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance. Peels smooth and firm skin and lighten age spots gradually. The treatment can be done during your lunch hour, and there is no recovery time. However, a series of several peels done once a month is needed before you will notice any fading. Chemical peels are a good choice for fair-skinned individuals.

    As with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, though they are minimized in the hands of an ASDS dermatologist. These include temporary or permanent change in skin color, particularly for women on birth control pills who subsequently become pregnant of have a history of brownish facial discoloration. Scarring and reactivation of cold sores may occur.

    Chemical peels improve the appearance of age spots by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance. Before the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will usually review the patient's medical history and conduct a physical exam. This is the time for the health care practitioner and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. Patients also should dicuss your age spots and your treatment goals in order to determine the depth of chemical peel. Reveal any history of scarring, persistent cold sores or facial X-rays. Avoid any medications or supplements that can affect blood clotting - such as aspirin, ibuprofen or vitamin E - for 10 days before surgery. Avoid using medications such a Retin-A, Renova or glycolic acid. Determine in advance whether you will need to have someone drive you home following the procedure.

    After the procedure, patients experience a reaction similar to sunburn in the treatment area. Patients may experience redness, followed by scaling within three to seven days, swelling, and blisters that will crust, turn brown and peel off within seven to 14 days following medium and deep peels. There will be bandages over treated areas for several days. Chemical peel patients should avoid the sun for several months following a procedure. Light peels may be repeated in one- to four-week intervals. Medium-depth peels may be repeated every six to 12 months.

    CRYOSURGERY

    Also known as liquid nitrogen therapy, cryosurgery fades age spots by freezing them with a liquid nitrogen solution, causing the darkened skin to peel away from the body. Freezing brown or yellow spots off can usually eliminate them. Cryosurgery often is used for wart removal, but is also used by placing liquid nitrogen on the age spot and cause it to turn white in about a month. Cryosurgery is a quick and safe treatment for age spots in the hands of an experienced dermatologic surgeon.

    Though it is one of the fastest ways to treat the marks, as with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, although they are minimized in hands of an experienced dermatologic surgeon. These include a permanent white spot or scar in some cases and the possibility of lighter color skin after treatment. During a painless in-office procedure, the health care provider brushes liquid nitrogen on the spots with a cotton swab. In two seconds the cells disappear.

    The average cost for cryosurgery is between $500 to $900 or more, depending upon the practitioner. Since cryosurgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, treatment usually is not covered by most medical insurance companies. There are certain situations where insurance covers the procedure, such as removal of precancerous growths and scar modification. Other factors affecting cost include size and location of the procedure.

    Before the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will usually review the patientís medical history and conduct a physical exam. This is the time for the health practitioner and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. Patients also should tell your practitioner about any medications you are taking, including herbal supplements, as well as any allergies, especially local anesthetics or contract dye containing iodine. Be sure to tell your practitioner about any special cold sensitivities. Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti -inflammatory drugs or blood thinners for a specified time prior to the procedure. Your health practitioner may recommend taking ibuprofen, and/or an antibiotic a half-hour prior to the procedure.

    Cryosurgery often causes temporary side effects, including pain, redness, swelling, and crusting. These conditions will fade gradually several days following treatment.

    LASER RESURFACING

    Laser treatment is the most expensive method to remove the age spots. It is also the most efficient treatment used by medical practitioners and can be an in-office treatment. Age spots and wrinkles and lines are burned off with a laser, removing most traces of age spots and discoloration, usually in one treatment.

    Ablative laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin. It is sometimes simply referred to as "laser peeling" since it removes old skin cells in order to reveal newer, more youthful cells. Ablative laser resurfacing heats the skin layers underneath to promote collagen production, which stimulates skin in the treatment area to heal in a smoother, more even appearance.

    As with any treatment, there are risks associated with it, though they are minimized in the hands of a qualified ASDS dermatologist. These include pain, swelling, bleeding, scarring, crusting, discoloration and infection.

    The cost of one treatment can range from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on how big the area being treated is. The average cost for laser resurfacing is between $1,750 and $2,300. Since laser resurfacing is considered a cosmetic procedure, treatment usually is not covered by most medical insurance companies. There are certain situations where insurance covers the procedure, such as removal of precancerous growths and scar modification. Other factors affecting cost include size and location of the procedure.

    Before the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will usually review the patient's medical history and conduct a physical exam. This is the time for the doctor and patient to discuss expectations, potential risks and outcomes of the procedure. Patients also should discuss any susceptibility to cold sores or fever blisters around the mouth since the procedure can trigger breakouts in at-risk individuals. Avoid medications or supplements that can affect blood clotting, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or vitamin E, for 10 days before surgery. Avoid smoking for two weeks before and after the procedures.

    Following treatment, your ASDS dermatologist will bandage the treatment area. Patients will be required to clean the treatment area after the first 24 hours, and then four to five times a day thereafter. Apply an ointment, such as petroleum jelly, after cleanings to prevent scabs from forming. Your skin will be red and peeling and most likely scab in the days after the procedure. Expect recovery time of about a week. With this process, there is no lightening of the skin after removal is completed.

    Laser resurfacing patients also can expect the treated area to be swollen for 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Itching or stinging for 12 to 72 hours after treatment. Sloughing and peeling off old skin five to seven days after treatment. Healing typically takes 10 to 21 days, depending on the size and location of the procedure. After the treatment area is fully healed, patients should use only oil-free makeup for at least two to three months. You will need to avoid sun exposure and apply an appropriate sunscreen to the area, which will have a lighter appearance following resurfacing. It is important to keep new skin well-moisturized.

  • DIETARY & LIFESTYLE RECOMMENDATIONS

    DIETARY

  • Eat a diet that is high in vegetable protein and that consists of 50 percent raw fruits and vegetables, plus fresh grains, cereals, seeds, and nuts. Be aware that seeds and nuts become rancid quickly when subjected to heat and/or exposed to the air; purchase only raw nuts and seeds that have been vacuumed sealed.

  • Omit all animal protein from the diet for one month.

  • Avoid caffeine, fried foods, saturated fats, red meat, processed foods, sugar, and tobacco.

  • Follow a fasting program to cleanse the liver and rid the body of toxins. A properly functioning liver and a clean colon are important. Use Black Radish extract or Dandelion root and Beet juice along with three days of fasting a month with distilled water and fresh lemon juice and fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Fasting Therapy

    LIFESTYLE

  • Use cleansing enemas while fasting.

  • MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Enema Therapy

  • Limit sun exposure. Use a Sunscreen on exposed skin parts while outside.

  • Do not use cleansing creams, especially hydrogenated, hardened creams. Cleanse your skin with pure Olive Oil and a warm wet washcloth, then rinse with lemon juice and water.

  • This has worked for some people: At night, saturate a cotton ball with pure Lemon juice and put it over the spots (but do not apply near the eyes). There may be some tingling, but only for a few minutes. If there is not sign of irritation, apply morning and night.

    HerbsPro: Active Age Defense Ginsium C Skin Lightening, Earth Science, 1.7 oz.

Dark complexions and age spots are caused by melanin formation in the skin. Ginsium-C blocks the production of new melanin. It does not remove the melanin already formed. That existing melanin must be lost through the normal 28-day cycle of skin cell turnover. Those older, melanin-rich cells will slowly come to the skins surface and be sloughed off naturally, then replaced by new cells with less melanin.

  • DMAE SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) is naturally found in some foods such as anchovies and sardines. DMAE is a amino alcohol chemical naturally produced in minuscule amounts in the human brain. Known primarily as a highly bioactive nutritional precursor used by the body in converting choline to acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter responsible for nerve transmissions and cognitative function. DMAE may increase levels of the brain neurotransmitter acetylcholine which may be helpful for increasing and improving memory, enhancing mental concentration (focus) and learning ability while stimulating neural activity. Because of its ability to improve muscle reflexes and increase oxygen efficiency, many athletes now take DMAE to improve performance and gain a competitive edge. Many researchers believe that it may serve an anti-aging function by increasing the body's capacity to produce acetylcholine - a deficiency commonly associated with memory loss. Taken as a maintenance supplement, DMAE Supplement works synergistically with other smart nutrients like Ginkgo Biloba, GABA, Phosphatidyl Serine and L-Tyrosine, or can be taken alone.
