To get rid of age spots, acupuncture can help

There are special cells in the skin making melanin which gives the skin color. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production causing skin pigmentation which affects the color of the skin. Age spots (known as liver spots) are the result of an excess production of melanin caused by overactive pigment cells. The cause for this is not clear, but ultraviolet (UV) light (sun exposure, tanning beds etc) accelerates the production of melanin. Age spots appear when melanin becomes clustered or is produced in high concentrations. On the areas of skin that have had years of frequent and prolonged sun exposure, it is more likely to get age spots such as the face. The risk factors for age spots are being older than 40 years old, having fair skin and having a history of frequent sun exposure and tanning bed use. Age spots range from light brown to black in color. The spots have the same texture as the rest of your skin. They do not cause any pain. Age spots are harmless and don't need treatment. For cosmetic reasons, some people like to get rid of age spots. Facial acupuncture can help to get rid of the age spots on the face.
