Brown Spots on the Skin

Brown Spots on the Skin

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 sunscreen 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 called IPL photo rejuvenation (Intense Pulsed Light) may be suitable for your skin: this treatment breaks up the melanin, spots appear lighter and skin tone is evener. The added benefit of this treatment is that collagen production is stimulated enhancing your skins overall appearance
