Sun and Age Spots

Sun and Age Spots

A sun spot is flat hyper pigmentation caused by cumulative sun exposure and may appear as tan, brown or dark brown spot(s) found on sun exposed skin. As people age, the skin is subjected to more and more sun damage. While melanin absorbs sunlight and helps protect us, the body’s natural ability to protect against UV rays begins to deteriorate with age.

Age spots or liver spots commonly appear on the hands though they may be found on other areas of the skin that have been exposed to the sun. While fine lines and wrinkles are telltale signs of aging, dark spots also contribute greatly to aging the skin. Thankfully, lasers are an effective means of treating sun and age spots.

A treatment using the Soli-Tone 2500 targets photoreceptors in the skin inducing a photo response that improves pigmentation (as well as blemishes, redness and wrinkles). This treatment targets photo-aging and pigmentation on both fair and dark skin. Four “cell-specific wavelengths” ensure optimal absorption and results.
