Dark Spot on Face? You Don't Have to Live With It!

Updated on August 16, 2007

How to Remove Dark Spot on Face

Even a person with near perfect skin will eventually get a dark spot on face or hands. Many people wake up in the morning and look in the mirror to discover a temporary lapse in skin health. They have no idea how the dark spot got there, but they certainly want to take steps to remove it. Luckily, there are products on the market geared to do just that. Getting rid of that unsightly blemish is easy to do, with the right products.

The most common causes of dark spot on face have to do with too much exposure to the sun. Harmful ultraviolet rays have come under attack by doctors and dermatologists in recent years as more research has shown their ability to inflict long term damage to the skin. If you spend too much time soaking in the rays in your earky years, you might end up with a concentration of pigment in the worst of places as you get older. Though the sun is not always the culprit in causing odd coloring in the body, it is the most common reason why something like that might happen.

If you have been careful to keep sunscreen on your face and avoid long term exposure to the sun, then what other things might be causing that dark spot on your nose or cheek? Many dermatologists feel that acne can cause these spots to exist. Even if you have gone through the long, hard process of removing your acne, it could leave its remnants behind on your face. In this case, it could appear that you have a small bruise living just under the skin that makes your entire face suffer. One of the quickest and most effective ways to remove the look of a former pimple is through the use of skin lighteners and skin whiteners.

Skin whiteners or lighteners work in a seemingly simple way, but no one can question their effectiveness. For removing a dark spot on your face, they are the most effective and one of the cheapest forms of treatment available. By simply applying a skin whitening product to the affected area every day for a couple of weeks, you can minimize the appearance of dark spots. It works like bleach for the skin. Imagine having a stain on your best pair of white pants, but you can’t seem to get it to go away. You would probably use bleach to remove the stain. Skin lighteners work along those same lines, except they are safe for the skin.

But aren't skin whiteners dangerous?

There are varying levels of success for skin lighteners and skin whiteners and it mostly depends upon your skin. In some cases, skin lightening products can do so much as completely remove any sign of the blemish from your face. It takes constant attention to the dark spot and a good product to yield those kinds of results, though.

Over time, the skin lightener is able to break down the dark spot on your skin and turn it back to reasonable color. Though it is not always possible to get a perfect skin match, the resulting look will be much better than the previous one. Much of that depends upon how deep the blemish is. Deeper blemishes will have an effect far under the skin, so they will take much longer to bleach. Some pimples and sun spots on the face will become much lighter with only a few applications of a cream.

The best thing about skin lightening products is that most are relatively safe for use on the skin. Dermatologists all agree that even constant application to the skin should never cause any damage and that if the products are used correctly, they can be quite effective. It is important, however, to ensure that the skin lightener is only being applied to the blemish itself. If the skin lightener meets the skin outside of the dark spot, it can sometimes turn that skin a lighter shade and create problems.

For dark spots that are caused by either exposure to the sun or the remnants of a blemish, be sure to look into using skin whitening cream. It is the most effective and quickest way to get your face back to looking like it always has. A dark spot on face can be treated with proper care.

With all of the hype in magazines, on the Internet, and the shopping channels about the next amazing product, how can you tell if they really work? We can help.
