— Age spots are not only cosmetic defect. Under the mask of pigmentation can hide melanoma. Therefore, before you delete and bleach, it is necessary to diagnose lentigo. This is impossible — we need high — tech devices-the wood's lamp, Dermatoscope with polarized light, dermatoskop and of course the knowledge and experience of the doctor. Therefore, households are strictly forbidden to do aggressive peels and use traditional recipes, which include strong acids, abrasives. In addition, the risk of burns, traumas. As a result, you get the opposite effect — pigmentation will be much stronger, there may be scars and rosacea. If you have severe pigmentation, consult a specialist who can offer comprehensive treatment: laser therapy, fractional resurfacing, photorejuvenation, chemical peels, mesotherapy, PRP therapy, as well as methods that do not cause damage to the skin, electroporation, laser biorevitalization and photodynamic therapy. Proposed revisions as a homemade mask is able to refresh the complexion, helps to remove dead skin cells and make it softer. But they do not solve the problem of pigmentation. Remember that after any skin peels and scrubs becomes more susceptible to the sun, so you need to use sunscreen even in cloudy weather.
