Years of sun exposure with little or no protection can lead to unattractive brown spots on the face, neck, chest and hands.
Sunspots are also known as age spots, liver spots, freckles, lentigos or lentigines. These lesions are flat, brown, or dark brown spots on sun-exposed skin. As people age, sun spots most commonly appear on the backs of the hands, the forearms, neck, chest and face, and are associated with cumulative sun exposure. The pigment-producing cells in the skin (called melanocytes) are activated to produce more pigment (melanin) by ultraviolet rays.
Prevention is key, therefore wearing broad-spectrum sunblock (UVA/UVB/Antioxidant) every day will prevent further age spots appearing on surface. When treating any pigmentation on the face or body we will first assess the area to determine the best treatment for you. As it is difficult to establish the exact depth and extent of each pigmented area a combination of treatments may be required to achieve the best results. Treatment Options:
Small pigmented areas on the face and body areas
Treats deeper stubborn sun spots
Larger pigmented on face, body, hands, larger areas
Deep & superficial pigmentation, freckles, sun spots, melasma, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks
