Sunspots

Skin pigmentation or sun damage treatments

Overview

Sun Spots

Age spots, sun spots, under eye dark circles or body pigment occurs most commonly on the face, but the body such as the declote, back or arms. A more difficult condition, known as melasma is a more severe form of hyperpigmentation that can be treated or lightened. Pigment spots  are commonly known as freckles too.  When your skin is exposed to UV rays, it produces more melanin (pigment) to protect the deeper layers. The more sun, the darker the pigment becomes. There are light treatments such as BBL forever young, and IPL, that help to significantly reduce the damage. In office laser treatments, and chemical peels and HydraFacials, are among some of the options commonly used at Anti-Aging.

There are topical treatments too. Skincare such as SkinMedica’s Lytera 2.0 or ZO’s Brightalive or SkinBetter’s Even are useful adjuncts to your laser treatments. With ongoing daily use of sunscreen, you can prevent further damage.

WHAT CAN BE DONE?

Tips to reduce melasma style pigmentation

Topical treatments such as Vitamin A derivative skin care, antioxidants such as SkinCeuticals Phloretin. Laser treatments, including PicoWay, Venus Viva or Infini RF Microneedling with chemical peels and daily attention to sun avoidance, will all help with this condition. Keep out of the sun when ever possible, wear hats, and sun protective clothing. If you are not sure about your sun spot, get it checked out by your doctor, or dermatologist.
