Best Botox in Birmingham! Dr. Farmah was a professional and very warm and welcoming. He also did fillers with her for nasal labial folds and best lip injections. What a great experience!!!

Dr. Farmah was so thorough, informative, and reassuring. This was my first Botox treatment ever performed on myself, and I used it as more of a preventative method. I started developing a horizontal line across my forehead and worried that it would become more permanent if not targeted right away by a professional. He makes it sound and look so easy. Very professional atmosphere and exceptional customer service. I highly recommend him!

I had few sessions of Micro-needling with Dr. Farmah there. Very happy with my results! The aestheticians are super professionals and kind, the treatment is relaxing and I love to go to this clinic as my break time from work and stress. A little me time once a month for relaxation and beauty. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend! I'm from Bromsgrove, and it is worth the drive! Dr. Farmah truly knows what he is doing. I was nervous because any alteration to the face is scary. I am young and have always had dark circles. No creams, diet, or products helped. I was impressed by how natural his patients looked. I am young, so I did not want the “filler” look. Dr. Farmah did a great evaluation, and did not push me to get the treatment. I truly think he did everything right: deep fillers, microcannula, Restylane. I had very little bruising and swelling, and I went out to dinner right after treatment. Overall, I would absolutely do this treatment with Dr. Farmah again. I look rested and refreshed, and it looks natural! Thank you, Dr. Farmah!

I recently came to see Dr. Farmah after a friend had recommended me for filler. I have had a hard time finding a decent injector around Birmingham and was nervous at first. But my experience here was fantastic. My results came out better than I had expected and required less product than I had been quoted by others. Dr. Farmah was very professional and patient and did an excellent job of explaining my options between Restylane and Juvederm. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in botox & Fillers! I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face.

What Are Age Spots?

Also known as sunspots, age spots are small areas of hyperpigmentation (discolouration) that frequently appear on the face,décolletage, hands and other parts of the body regularly exposed to the sun. They often range in colour from tan, brown or black, and can vary in size from 0.2 cm to 2 cm.

What Causes Age Spots?

Overexposure to Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun is the primary cause of age spots. Tanning beds, though an artificial source of UV light has the same effect. Melanin is a protective pigment in the skin that absorbs the UV radiation from the sun’s rays. Therefore, when you are frequently exposed to a lot of UV, melanin is produced in high concentration and often ends up clumping together. In return, this brings about the appearance of age spots.

Ageing is another contributing factor to the formation of age spots. As the skin ages, the number of melanocytes (melanin-producing cells) in the skin decreases. With the remaining ones increase their activity, there is overproduction of melanin in specific areas of the skin. These physiological changes explain the increase of age spots in those over 40.

Can I Get Rid of My Age Spots?

Age spots are often harmless and don’t require medical care. Most people opt to get rid of them for cosmetic reasons. In many instances, age spots tend to group together, making them more noticeable. This makes a lot of people self-conscious.

On the other hand, if you’re worried that a dark area isn’t an age spot, you should talk to your general practitioner. Doctors can usually identify age spots by a visual inspection. If unsure, your doctor might do other tests, such as removing a small skin sample for examination in a lab (skin biopsy).

Age Spots Frequently Asked Questions

Am I at Risk of Getting Age Spots?

People of any age, sex, or race can develop age spots. However, some groups of people are more susceptible to developing age spots. These include:

  • People older than 40 years (hence the names age spots)
  • People with fair skin complexion
  • People with a history of frequent sun exposure or tanning bed use (meaning even young people can develop age spots).

How Do I Avoid Getting Age Spots?

When it comes to taking care of our skincare, a preventive approach is often best. Sun protection is the most significant step you can take to help prevent age spots from forming. One of the best things you can do is use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to prevent them from occurring in the first place. Also, try to keep out of the sun during its most intense hours and don’t forget about sun-protective clothing such as hats. These can go a long way in shielding your skin from too much sun exposure.

How Do I Get Rid of the Age Spots I Already Have?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of age spots, there are several things you can do to get rid of them. The pigment is at the base of the epidermis (the topmost layer of skin), so you need a treatment that can penetrate this layer of the skin.

Here at Dr Aesthetica, we have found Skin Peels to be a very effective treatment for many of our patients. All of our skin peel and care products are sourced from AlumierMD—a revolutionary range of clinically proven and high-grade products. The best part is that the treatment can be hyper-customised and tailored to your specific skin concerns. Chemical face peels work by removing the outer layer of the skin (where the age spots are located) and stimulating new tissue growth. They are excellent for targeting different skin depths that treatments such as dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, or facials cannot reach.

Is Getting a Skin Peel Treatment Safe?

Skin Peels are generally safe. That being said, like any other cosmetic procedure, they must be performed by a trained and experienced professional. In the wrong hands, skin peels can result in adverse results such as scarring, swelling, infection, or discolouration.

What if I Don’t Want a Skin Peel?

AlumierMD (exclusively available at Dr Aesthetica) also offers home-based skincare solutions. With AlumierMD, we can laser focus on your unique skin profile and immediately begin working on your problematic area (age spots) without damaging your skin.

It all starts with a consultation with our professional aesthetics practitioners to address your age spots or any other skin concerns you might have. From this, we will create a specially designed skincare regime with clear, simple instructions. Expect to see some visual and physical changes to the skin within the first few weeks.
