Brown Spots

 

Once the warmer weather arrives, unsightly brown spots may appear that are darker on faces and hands. This is due to the melanin intensifying under UVB light.

Prevention is always better than cure in this situation. Always wear a high factor sun screen SPF of 30, 50 is better. Wear sunglasses and hats where possible. For persistent spots that remain visible after the summer months have gone, a light based treatment IPL photo rejuvenation (Intense Pulsed Light) maybe suitable for your skin: this treatment breaks up the melanin, spots appear lighter and skin tone is more even. The added benefit of this treatment is that collagen production is stimulated enhancing your skins overall appearance
