New Treatment For Age Spots; Post-Laser Repair Skin Care

Do you feel self-conscious about the spots on your face? It’s understandable to be unsure if they are melasma, sunspots, age spots, or skin cancer. If you’re considering laser treatment, you might be worried about post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Chen Junru, from Taiwan Jinghe Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Clinic, shared a story about her father’s experience of removing a large age spot from his face in just 10 days.

Ms. Chen explained that her father, who is nearly 80 years old, loves to exercise outside but never wears sunscreen. As a result, he developed several different-sized age spots over time.

On another note, Ms. Chen prescribed some Chinese herbs to help her father’s intestinal motility, enhance his metabolic function, and strengthen his organ function.

After ten days of this treatment, the most prominent spot on his face was removed. It’s amazing to see how taking care of ourselves on the inside can also have an impact on our exterior appearance.

Melanin production

The human body produces melanin, a chemical substance that protects against harmful UV rays. When skin is exposed to excessive UV rays, it secretes excess melanin.

However, poor metabolism can cause melanin to accumulate on the skin, resulting in sun spots. Melanin production can also increase due to other factors such as age, diabetes, pregnancy, contraceptive use, and negative emotions. To address this issue, it is recommended to improve the function of internal organs, blood circulation, and metabolism. With proper care, sun spots may fade faster than expected.

Improving skin protection

If you’re looking to enhance your skin’s protection, Ms. Chen advises incorporating more antioxidant-rich foods into your diet. Think fresh fruits, vegetables, green tea, nuts, whole grains, and Chinese medicinal herbs like raw ginger, ginseng, Astragalus, Ganoderma lucidum, white fungus, and hawthorn.

These herbs can work wonders for your blood circulation and have anti-aging properties. And when it comes to skincare, vitamin C, glutathione, L-ascorbic acid, and arbutin can assist in lightening spots. Nevertheless, Ms. Chen stresses the significance of reinforcing your skin’s ability to defend itself against UV rays to slow down aging and tackle the root cause of blemishes, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Precautions for laser surgery

After undergoing laser surgery or dealing with skin disease, people may experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) if their skin gets damaged.

According to Dr. Hu Yixuan from Taiwan Jingyan Dermatology Clinic, Asians are particularly susceptible to PIH. PIH can be caused by a few different factors, including:

– Constitution problems: People with darker skin or more pigmentation are more prone to PIH after injury. It may take a longer time for laser treatment to fade the pigmentation of the injury for those with this type of constitution.

– Intense laser treatment: If the laser treatment is too intense, it will take longer for the skin to heal. When healing is slower and inflammation is more obvious, skin darkening will be worse.

– Poor postoperative care: After the operation, it is important to use sunscreen and reduce outdoor activities to a minimum. Activities like hiking, sunbathing, soaking in hot springs, and using the sauna can all create redness and heat on the skin, which should be avoided.

– Acidic skin care products: Using these before surgery can lead to PIH.

– Sunburn before surgery: Damaged skin is not well-suited for laser treatment.
