Age Spots

The three steps to managing your age spots.

You’re not looking for simple ways to manage your age spots; you’re looking for awesome ways! Essence MediSpa is one of the area’s leaders in age spot treatments.

Protection: There is no skin care product or procedure that can replace prevention. Since sun exposure is the number one cause of the signs of aging, a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15 is the best way to take care of your skin. You can find them for dry, oily, and even combination skin and in sun protection factors of up to 50 and sometimes even higher. The broad spectrum feature is actually very important – it will help prevent the damage from both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays. And do not take a break from your sunscreen on those overcast and rainy days, some of those rays will still penetrate the clouds.

Correction: By the time most of us realize the importance of protection and prevention, the sun has already left its mark on our complexions. But there are products and procedures that can help reduce the sun’s footprints on our complexions. If you are looking for rapid and satifactory correction, ask us about pulsed light therapies which can have a wonderful result without extreme exfoliation or significant down-time.

Nutrition: Nutrition, both inside and outside, can have an impact on the way our face faces the world. Everyone recommends eating a balanced diet and drinking water for overall health benefits, but it can also positively affect your skin. As we slide out of the holiday season and into the new year, many resolutions have to do with diet and exercise. Remember when you make your food selections that you are feeding your skin with those same vitamins and minerals. In addition to a (mostly) healthy diet, nutrition can also come topically. Make sure you are using a gentle cleanser and an effective moisturizer for your skin. Dehydrated skin can age much quicker than moisturized skin – compare a 45-year-old living in Phoenix to her 50-year-old sister living in Houston, and the one in Texas will most likely look younger.

In summary, the program is not as complicated as some skincare companies would lead you to believe, and really does not require a fifteen-step regimen. The three steps above are no doubt already in your everyday life anyway, and consistency is the key! Call today to discuss the M22 pulsed light and other corrective therapy.
