SUN & AGE SPOTS

Sunspots, also called liver spots or solar lentigines, and age spots, are flat brown, gray, or black spots on the skin that typically appear on sun-exposed areas of the body. They are a visible consequence of skin photodamage and are most commonly found on the face, hands, shoulders, and arms, which are the areas most exposed to the sun. Pigmentation may increase due to an accumulation of melanin, the substance that gives skin its color. While they are most commonly associated with aging and sun exposure, anyone can develop them, especially if they are exposed to a lot of sun or have a history of frequent or intense sunburns.

Prevention is always better than cure, so to avoid the formation of sun and age spots, it is recommended to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even on cloudy days and in the winter. Wearing protective clothing, such as hats and long sleeves, and avoiding peak sun intensity by seeking shade during midday hours can also help protect the skin.

Sunspot and Age Spot Treatments at House of Lore:

At House of Lore, we offer a variety of treatments to help reduce and eliminate the appearance of sun and age spots, tailoring our approach to the individual needs and skin types of our clients.

      • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy: This treatment uses light energy to target the pigment in sunspots, heating and destroying the melanin, which later flakes off or is absorbed by the body. A series of IPL treatments is typically recommended for best results.
      • Chemical Peels: These involve the application of a solution to exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing the fresher, less pigmented skin beneath. Chemical peels can vary in intensity, with deeper peels offering more dramatic results.
      • Medical Grade Skincare Products: To support in-office treatments, we provide top-tier skincare products containing active ingredients such as hydroquinone, glycolic acid, retinoids, and vitamin C, known for their skin-lightening and exfoliating properties. These products can help fade sun and age spots and improve overall skin tone when used consistently.

By integrating these targeted treatments with a robust prevention strategy, we can assist our clients in achieving clearer and more even-toned skin, free from the distraction of sun and age spots. Each treatment plan is customized after a thorough skin evaluation, ensuring our clients receive the most effective care for their specific skin concerns. Ready to achieve flawless, even-toned skin?
