Have you started noticing dark spots on your skin? It may have started with just one or two, and now they seem to be multiplying at a crazy fast rate.
A bit About Age Spots
These dark spots are the result of the overproduction of melanin (skin pigment). It’s not fully understood why dark spots develop, but aging and UV light exposure are major causes.
Age spots are most likely to appear on the parts of the body that receive the most sun exposure, including the face, back of hands, arms, shoulders and back. They don’t hurt and they have the same texture as the rest of your skin.
Solutions for Getting Rid of Age Spots
If you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening creams designed to treat dark spots and have had limited results, fear not! Clearer, younger looking skin is possible.
We have several solutions to completely remove or at least minimize the appearance of these pesky age spots:
- Cutera® Limelight Facial: Non-invasive light-based skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to improve skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo-damage. It is an ideal treatment for sun spots on the face, neck, chest, and arms.
- SkinMedica® Peels: Medium depth peels for mild to moderate skin imperfections. These peels brighten skin color and clarity while reducing visible signs of pigmentation and can even help with fine lines. These peels are optimal for melasma, photo-damaged skin, and various types of hyperpigmentation. Try SkinMedica® peels for a more youthful, radiant glow.
- Cryotherapy: using liquid nitrogen to freeze brown spots.
