Age spots — also called liver spots and solar lentigines — are small dark areas on your skin. They vary in size and usually appear on areas most exposed to the sun, like the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. Age spots are very common in adults older than 50. Younger people can get them also, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun without sun protection or use tanning beds
Age spots can look like cancerous growths. But true age spots are harmless and don't need treatment. For cosmetic reasons, they can be lightened or removed. Use a sunscreen daily, even in the winter months and avoiding the sun is the best way to prevent age spots.
When to see a doctor
Age spots are usually harmless and don't require medical care. Have your doctor look at spots that are dark or have changed in appearance. These changes can be signs of melanoma, a serious form of skin cancer.
It's best to have any new skin changes evaluated by a doctor, especially if a spot:
- Is darkly pigmented
- Is rapidly increasing in size
- Has an irregular border
- Has an unusual combination of colors
- Is accompanied by itching, redness, tenderness or bleeding
- Many growths develop over a short time.
- The growths get irritated or bleed when your clothing rubs against them. You may want the growths removed.
- You notice suspicious changes in your skin, such as sores or growths that grow rapidly, bleed and don't heal.
Syringoma: A benign (noncancerous) skin tumor that derives from eccrine cells, specialized cells related to sweat glands. The skin lesions of syringoma usually appear during puberty or adult life, and consist of small bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that form under the surface of the skin. The most frequent site is the eyelids and around the eyes, but other areas of the body can also be affected. Syringomas more frequently affect women than men, and they have a hereditary basis in some cases.
Milia occurs when dead skin flakes or keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin.
Milia a harmless small pearly white,bump-like cysts. Milia can occur anywhere on the body, but are more common face, typically around the eyelids, nose and cheeks. They are usually 1 to 2 millimeters (mm) in size.
Seborrheic keratosis - usually looks like a waxy scaly and slightly raised or wart like growth. It typically appears on the head, face, neck, chest, shoulders or back. You may develop a single growth, though multiple growths are more common. Seborrheic keratoses are harmless and not contagious.
SK is a common benign growth, skin compose of a lot of layers of dead skin piled up on the surface to give it a rough, crusty scaly kind of texture. The word seborrheic means upper body, where most of these types of lesions grow and keratosis refers to their texture, the waxy wart like.
They appear as we get older, and can start developing as early as the 30s or 40s. However, by the age of 50 plus, most individuals may have grown one or several of them. They can grow anywhere on the body, but are most common on the truck and head. They range in size and color. From as small as a pin head, as large as 5 to 6 centimeters around. The color varies from flesh colored, or a range of color from light tan, to brown, even black.
Characteristics of Seborrheic Keratosis:
- Ranges in color from light tan to brown or black
- Starts middle aged and older
- Round or oval shaped
- Has a "stuck on or pasted on" look
- Flat or slightly raised with a scaly surface
- Ranges in size from very small to more than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) across
- May itch
- Cause unknown
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) is a term used to describe a clinical variants of Seborrheic keratosis of face seen more commonly in people of color African Americans, Hispanic and sometimes Asian ethnicities.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra appears as small black and dark brown spots or skin growth. The size of these spots ranges from 1 to 5 millimeters and are usually found around the eye and upper cheeks. Some people with dermatosis papulosa nigra have a few, unique spots while others have a numerous amount, as in the case of Morgan Freeman. The spots may be flat or hang off the skin like a skin tag.
Although they can be found other areas of the body also, such as neck, chest, and back. DPN spots are generally limited to sun-exposed areas.
Dermatosis papulosa nigra is likely to be genetically determined with 40–50% of patients having a family history. It is believed to be due to a naevoid developmental defect of the hair follicle.
The spots are neither cancerous nor medically related, but they may be itchy, irritating, or become cosmetically displeasing. They are often referred to as ‘moles’ but they are not true moles by classification. The papules of dermatosis papulosa nigra are identical to small seborrheic keratoses.
Cherry angioma, a benign mole-like skin growth made up of small blood vessels, or an overgrowth of capillaries. The collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma gives them a reddish appearance. It is the most common type of angioma. Red moles, or cherry angiomas, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body.
They’re also known as senile angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots. Cherry angiomas are related to aging and tend to increase in number as a person becomes older, they most commonly appear in adults older than 30 years. Acording to one study published in American Family Physician, up to 50% of adults have Cherry angiomas.
Telangiectasia (Broken Capillaries) is a condition in which broken or widened small blood vessels that sit near the surface of the skin cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin. These patterns, or telangiectases, form gradually and often in clusters. They’re sometimes known as “spider veins” because of their fine and web like appearance.
Broken capillaries on the face are often found on the cheeks and around the nose, they often appear as small spidery red or pink marks beneath the surface of the skin.
What causes broken capillaries?
There are a number of causes may influence the development of telangiectases. Genetic, environmental, or a combination of both could be a contributing factor. The most common theory is, that most cases of telangiectasia are caused by chronic exposure to the sun or extreme temperatures. Because they generally appear on the body where skin is regularly exposed to sunlight and air. But, they can also be found on the sides of the nose in healthy adults as well.
Other causes are:
- Alcohol consumption
- Corticosteroid use
Skin Tags, also known as fibromas, polyps, or papillomas.
A small flap of flesh-colored tissue that hangs off your skin by a thin stalk. They can contain nerve and fat cells, and they vary in size
They’re non-dangerous types of tumors or growths on the skin that usually forms in a place where constant friction occurs, or in the folds of the body. Common areas include like underarms, neck, eyelids, under your breasts, or in your groin.
SKIN CLASSIC Q & A
What is the Skin Classic Machine?
The Skin Classic is a high frequency device that utilizes direct high frequency in a precise manner to treat minor skin irregularities in the epidermis.
How Does Skin Classic Work?
The high frequency technology thermally vaporizes minor irregularities on the surface of the skin. The skin is never pentrated. The energy is directed to the skin irregularity via probe. The moisture in the tissue is then dehydrated. Or sebum is attracted to the probe and comes out of the skin.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
It depends. Typically, one treatment is necessary, however, in the case of “many” skin irregularities, a second treatment may be needed at the end of the 30 day healing cycle.
Is There Any Down Time?
Post treatment, 24-36 hours, a crust will develop on the skin irregularity, it’s nature’s band aid. The crust will shed within 7-10-14 days. It is VERY IMPORTANT, not to pick at the crust/scab or prematurely pull it off.
Makeup can be worn during the healing process. Gently cleansing is necessary as not to disturb the crust. After the crust/scab sloughs off, the skin might look pinkish or brownish for up to 6-8 weeks as the new skin go through the entire healing cycle and re-melanizes.
Does it hurt?
There may be some minimal discomfort or slight stinging treating some skin irregularities, but numbing cream is an available option for some clients to edge off.
