Age Spots/Sun Damage
Age spots are flat, oval areas of increased pigmentation that can be shades of black, brown or gray. They appear on skin that has had the most sun exposure over the years: the face, shoulders, upper back, backs of hands and tops of feet. Age spots can range from freckle-size to more than a half inch (1 centimetre) in width and may group together, making them more prominent.
Melasma is a common skin issue causing brown to gray-brown patches on the face. They are usually symmetrical and resemble splotches or ink blot spots. It occurs most commonly on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin and above the upper lip. Melasma is driven by hormonal factors, but is aggravated by the sun, heat and UV rays. Women are far more likely than men to experience this condition. It is also known as the pregnancy mask, as many women get meslama above their lip during pregnancy.
Treatment for Melasma involves daily use of MINERAL sunscreen (to prevent it from worsening), topical skin lightening lotions, a Retinol product (to speed cellular turnover in the skin), as well as laser treatments. Only certain lasers can be used to treat Melasma, as many lasers, including IPL, deliver too much heat into the skin and often make the condition even worse.

Enhance your appearance without surgery
For a more youthful appearance without undergoing surgery, dermal fillers (such as hyaluronic acid) may be an effective option. These injections can add youthful volume to the face, lift and enhance the shape of the face, improve the appearance of recessed scars, and smooth out wrinkles. Often called liquid facelifts, they may offer some of the benefits of surgical facelifts without the downtime.
