Hi Sweety, thank you for the question.
Pigmentation, sun spots, liver spots, or age spots are best treated after having the skin examined by a dermatologist or an aesthetic medical practitioner.
A number of treatments exist and the choice is dependent on the type of pigmentation and one’s financial resources.
Topically one must use a SPF (30 or higher that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide) several times daily and sun avoidance; and one should consider products such as NeoStrata’s Pigment Lightening Gel and Brightening Cream SPF 15. One can improve the effectiveness of this approach by adding a series of NeoStrata Glycolic acid peels with booster pads.
An improved result will be achieved using skin rejuvenation technology (when indicated) such as laser (Fraxel, Ultrapulse, Palomar) or light (Syneron eMax, eLight – with bi-polar radiofrequency, or the Ellipse IPL).
