IPL Laser for Brown Spots
IPL (brown spots or hyperpigmentation )
Hyperpigmentation is usually a condition that does not cause you any harm, however, this is always potential that it could be a skin cancer so always get it assessed by a medical professional before commencing treatment. It gives an unevenness across the skin that is hard to camouflage with make-up.
Better known as dark spots, hyperpigmentation may be apparent as melasma – brown patches on adult skin – or as sun spots due to too much exposure to the sun resulting in an excess production of melanin.
It can happen anywhere on the face or body .

Or that UVA rays can pass through glass even in overcast weather? In contrast to UVB you do not get the warning sign of burning with UVA. The most important anti-ageing step you can take is to apply daily, a broad-spectrum sun screen SPF 30-50 in winter and at least 50 in the summer.
