Age spots and wrinkles, can they be prevented? When they happen together, it is usually a sign that the skin has aged and been subjected to significant ultraviolet light and other insults over a prolonged period of time.
Age spots are also called sun spots and appropriately so. As with wrinkles, the main cause of sun spots or age spots is the sun’s ultraviolet rays impacting on the skin. Sound familiar? It is. You may remember that the sun’s ultraviolet rays are also a cause of skin cancers. This brings up the point that before one dismisses any skin lesion, it might be best to have a physician take a look. Sun spots or age spots must be distinguished from melanoma.
Sun spots and wrinkles tend to occur where the skin is most exposed. As a result, certain areas of the skin are less likely to exhibit age spots. Some areas where this applies are the soles of the feet and between the toes. Not only are these areas neglected when it comes to self-examination, but they are hard to visualize. Have a physician check out any skin lesions found in these areas. The same goes for the back which is also difficult to self-exam. Have a buddy help you examine your back.
Age spots are hyper-pigmented patches that grow in response to trauma to a localized area of the skin. The spots are the result of cumulative injury. In a similar fashion, wrinkles are caused by damage to the deep connective tissue scaffolding the underlies the skin. Damaged collagen changes to another form of connective tissue called elastin. As its name applies, elastin tissue has elastic properties which allow the skin to sag.
When it comes to preventing sun spots and wrinkles, the most effective means is to reduce the exposure of the skin to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Sun screens work to reduce exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Smoking is another preventable cause of wrinkles.
Many people like to turn back the aging clock on both age spots and wrinkles. Can it be done? Now it can.
Researchers have isolated human biologics health stem cells and used them to treat several common health conditions. Skin aging is a good test for any anti-aging therapy because the effects are visible. As it turned out, human stem cells can reverse and prevent age spots and wrinkles.
Human stem cells are a special type of normal human cells that have the ability to form new adult tissue. This process is called differentiation. When applied to aging skin, human stem cells allow for the formation of younger skin. When this takes place, new cells replace the old cells. Age spots and wrinkles are prevented and reduced.
These special human cells are the result of 21st century technology. Stem cells are safe and easy to use. If you are concerned about aging skin, age spots or wrinkles, you may want to look into stem cell therapy.
