Even though we’re expecting cooler days soon, you’ll still need to be conscious of sun exposure. The cumulative effects of sun exposure can cause several complexion problems, one of the most common being hyperpigmentation. With time, small spots may appear on your skin in areas where they’re most exposed to the sun. What we normally call age or liver spots are actually just concentrations of melanin that occur when our skin produces too much, as a defence mechanism against UV exposure. Even if you’re younger and think that your skin is healthy enough to resistant UV damage, you should know that it’s only later (typically when you’re middle aged) that you’ll see the damage become more apparent.
Your treatment options for hyperpigmentation problems resulting from sun damage:
Chemical peels are treatments that involve gentle exfoliation of the top layers of your skin with a specially-formulated chemical solution based on natural acids. In addition to reducing the appearance of spots, you’ll notice that your skin becomes smoother, clearer and more vibrant as well.
A customized regimen consisting exclusively of Skin Tx skin care products offer the convenience of a solution that you can do at home. Pharmaceutical-grade formulations can help you achieve more even toned skin.
Fraxel is a laser treatment that can evens out skin tone. You’ll also notice your pores become less visible for healthier, more youthful skin.
FotoFacial RF Pro is another laser treatment that features elos technology for a gentler and effective solution for brown spots.
