Age Spots/Sun Damage
Age spots are flat, oval areas of increased pigmentation that can be shades of black, brown or gray. They appear on skin that has had the most sun exposure over the years: the face, shoulders, upper back, backs of hands and tops of feet. Age spots can range from freckle-size to more than a half inch (1 centimetre) in width and may group together, making them more prominent.
Tanned skin is damaged skin. We all love that healthy glow that’s the result of spending some time in the sun, but we pay a big price for it eventually. Age spots, fine wrinkling, sagging skin, dull or dry skin and uneven skin tone or texture are the result of too much time in the sun.
Sun damaged skin can speed up the clock, leaving you looking older than your natural age. It can also cause large patchy brown spots to form on the face, neck and hands.
To treat age spots, we recommend a combination of MINERAL sunscreen, medical grade skin care products, Fotona, or PicoSure Focus Laser treatments or chemical peel treatments.
