Are you bothered by those unpleasant discoloration or patches that suddenly appeared on your face? They are what the medical community calls "Lentigenes". In layman's term, they are known as Sun and Age Spots. These stem from various factors including hormonal changes, skin irritation, and excessive sun exposure. They are also natural effects of aging. Unfortunately, they can’t simply disappear with overnight facial treatments.
Although most skin discolorations such as freckles and age spots are harmless, a lot of women find them annoying and consider them as unpleasant skin condition. With proper skincare and the help of latest technology, it's possible to reduce or eliminate their effect. Here are popular Sun and Age Spot treatments that you might want to consider:
Pico Genesis - A laser treatment with significantly shorter and faster laser pulses, PICO Genesis™ revitalizes skin without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Your skin will look and feel smoother, in most cases, eliminating the need for makeup!
Laser Photo Facial - This light-based treatment targets pigmented spots in the skin. These spots absorb the laser or light energy and after rising to the surface, scab over and flake off. Although the pigment will be darker right after treatment, it can be covered by makeup and within 7-10 days, will be completely gone revealing fresh younger skin. One treatment is usually enough, but two may sometimes be necessary to eliminate all sun spots.
IPL Photofacial - A photofacial is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The treatment will also improve pigmentation, tone and texture of residual acne scars.
Vi Peel - Originally founded in Miami in 2006 and currently based in Beverly Hills, the Vitality Institute has created the next generation of chemical peels that are virtually painless, require no preparation, and have very little downtime.
