Having a beautiful complexion requires both inner and outer treatments. Age spots, brown spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation start appearing more frequently as we age. Their appearance is due to a combination of natural aging and frequent sun exposure. Sadly, there’s no easy way to prevent these issues from cropping up and disrupting our appearance. However, proper skin care and treatment options are out there and can help you restore the youthful radiance of your skin. Here at Horizons Health & Wellness, we offer both lifestyle guidance and aesthetic treatment to help you look your absolute best.
How Do Age Spots Occur?
The appearance of age spots and certain other skin issues such as melasma is a result of melanin clumping and ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Though we know the cause of these spots, predicting when or where they will show up is impossible. Some age spots can take a long time to form, while others can appear seemingly overnight. Their unpredictable nature means that we can’t control their onset. However, with a bit of help from our team, you can get rid of these spots after they’ve appeared.
How Can I Improve My Complexion?
Here at Horizons Health & Wellness, we offer a range of aesthetic treatments, including scar removal, photorejuvenation, and skin resurfacing, to improve your complexion and reduce any flaws. Along with this, we can offer lifestyle recommendations such as dietary guides, and skin care products to control skin texture. By taking the appropriate measures for your skin, you can ensure its health and beauty for the long haul.
How We Get Rid of Age Spots
At Horizons Health & Wellness, we rely on our ICON™ ThreeForMe and IPL Photofacial treatments to ease the appearance of age spots without downtime. These treatment options rely on laser light technology that emits wavelengths into the skin and targets pigment-producing cells below the surface. The light energy is converted to heat and destroys the hyperactive, melanin-producing cells responsible for age spots. The spots are pulled to the surface, eventually turning into a coffee-ground-like texture that flakes off, revealing beautiful, radiant skin underneath. These treatments can additionally target the following concerns:
What is My Complexion?
Your complexion is the appearance, color, and texture of your skin. A glowing, healthy complexion not only makes you look younger and more alive, but it also makes you feel invigorated and full of confidence.
An essential approach to enhancing your complexion is to look at your lifestyle and see whether you’re looking after your skin as well as you could.
How Can I Improve My Complexion?
Here at Horizons Health & Wellness, we offer a range of aesthetic treatments, including scar removal, photorejuvenation, and skin resurfacing, to improve your complexion and reduce any flaws. Additional considerations for improving your complexion are:
Sun exposure in moderation provides you with essential vitamin D and makes you feel better, but too much sun can wreak havoc on your skin. The UV rays in sunlight accelerate the development of wrinkles and sagging skin, cause age spots and other flaws, and can lead to skin cancer.
Smoking reduces blood flow in your skin, making you paler and depriving your skin of nutrients and oxygen. Smoking also reduces collagen and elastin production, so your skin is more prone to wrinkling and sagging. Squinting and pursing your lips repeatedly while you smoke also causes wrinkles.
Skin needs to be free of dirt and bacteria to allow a healthy complexion to shine through. However, stripping away all the natural oils in your skin can make it dry and flaky. Gentle cleansing and exfoliation and regular moisturizing are vital for a glowing complexion.
Diet and exercise
A good complexion requires proper nutrition, hydration, and healthy blood flow. Review your diet and how much exercise you get — there’s almost certainly room for improvement. You’d probably benefit from drinking more water, too. Many people don’t take in enough fluids each day. An easy formula to remember for MINIMUM recommended water intake is 1oz for each pound of body weight (for example, 150lbs bodyweight =150oz water/day).
