Over Exposure to the Sun Left you with Sun Spots?
Liver Spots (Solar Lentigo) or Age Spots are blemishes that appear on the skin mainly due to sun exposure although they are sometimes hereditory. It is the ultra violet rays in the sun that cause the pigment in the skin to change. They range in appearance from light brown to red or black and are found on areas of the body that are usually exposed to the sun more such as on the hands, face, shoulders and chest area.
As we get older the skin is less able to regenerate itself and liver spots are often left as a visible reminder of time spent out in the sun. Fortunately the appearance of age spots or liver spots can be improved by having treatment with an Intense Pulsed Light System. The treatment works by specifically targeting the pigment in the liver spot and breaking it down through the use of light. The removal of age spots is easier than the removal of moles as the pigment is damaged much closer to the surface of the skin. After an IPL treatment the area may become slightly raised and you will witness the pigment spot break down and gradually disperse. Of course, the best way to avoid sun damaged skin is to avoid excessive sun exposure. A high SPF cream should be worn at all times when you are out in the sun.
Before you begin treatment for liver spot removal you will be invited to attend a free consultation with a qualified practitioner. A test patch will also be carried out to assess your suitability for treatment.
