While it seems dark spots pop up almost overnight on your face, in fact, many of these spots have been years in the making.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain spots on the skin. Dark spots tend to appear on the face, hands, and other highly visible body parts that have been exposed to the sun. They can be hard to hide.
There are many types of hyperpigmentation, but the following are the most common:
Invest in a series of laser treatments. Lasers can be effective in treating even the most difficult of discolorations. With their far-reaching wave-lengths, they penetrate the skin, heat up targeted brown spots and destroy them by causing the darkened skin to flake and fall off following the treatment.
Most common are IPL and Fraxel lasers. Cost: $200-$800 per treatment. Multiple treatments are usually necessary. Downtime is involved with the Fraxel laser as the skin is noticeably red for about a week.
Age Spots are often treated with bleaching creams, skin lighteners, pigment gels, and spot treatments or in certain anti-aging products containing Hydroquinone.
Studies have shown that hydroquinone has carcinogenic properties, can be toxic and mutagenic, with the possibility of causing long-term damage to your cells.
Brighten up your skin and address age spots with a High Potency Vitamin C Serum spiked with key brightening ingredients--
Vitamin C, Retinol, glycolic acid, and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3).
At night, use a Retinol Serum. Retinol causes the skin cell turnover which begins the process of removing the pigmented cells that are there. As you peel off the dark spots, your skin replaces them with normally pigmented cells.
Sun protection is of utmost importance when investing in laser treatments, chemical peels, or using treatments with Retinol. SPF levels of 30-50 are best.
