What is the best treatment for age spots in Singapore?

Aesthetic Medicine

Hi there, thanks for your useful resource. I am a lady in my 40s with some dark coloured age spots. What is the best treatment to get rid of them? And how to prevent them from occurring? Thanks

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (3)

Black spots are quite annoying, we call these melasma.

Sunblock is the best way to prevent them.

Once they have started, you can try some special creams to try to “lighten” them, but unfortunately might not work very well.

Other options might include “laser” treatment.

Whether the age spots are melanoma OR freckles OR lentiginous lesions

it is best to get consulted before deciding on the treatment.


Anyhow, the most important is still avoidance of excessive sun exposure, use of sunscreen and some people use whitening creams/substances and oral sunscreen (like Estheshield) can be useful to reduce sun-exposure damage.

It is in fact quite common to develop pigmentations on the face especially for Asian skin types, and from middle age onwards.

"Age spots" are often described by patients for dark brown spotty pigmentations on the face, but this is just a layman or generic description.  

So first thing first, let an experienced doctor diagnose what exactly are these "Age spots". Are they solar lentigos, seborrheic keratosis, melasma or something else? Then we can advise on the appropriate treatments and prevention measures. 

You can read more about the different type of pigmentations in my "Ultimate Guide to Pigmentation Treatment in Singapore". 

Hope this helps!

Cheers!
