Did you know that studies have shown that a mere 5 minutes outdoors daily can boost your mood? It’s true! A walk, hike, run or outdoor activity like gardening can really beat the blues.
One undesired side effect of time spent in the sun, however, are sunspots. These dreaded large, round freckles appear on the face, neck, chest (décolleté) and can make you look older than you are. In addition, many of our patients say that they cause insecurity about the appearance of their skin.
To help both prevent and eliminate sunspots, follow these simple steps:
Slather on the Sunscreen
Make sure to wear an SPF 50 whenever you plan to be outdoors. Make sure your broad-spectrum sunscreen protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. A physician-grade zinc oxide sunscreen, available at our office, is always your best bet.
When dark spots, freckles, age spots, sunspots and other hyperpigmentation become bothersome, learn more about the advanced, minimally invasive treatments available at Skin Care Institute.
Did you know that in just one Photofacial up to 80% of spots can be eliminated? Dr. Bitter, the pioneer of this technology, was recently quoted as saying, “there is no jar of cream on earth that can do what one well performed photofacial can do” and we couldn’t agree more!
Depending upon your unique complexion, chemical peels as well as Clear + Brilliant™ can also achieve the even-toned, clear skin you desire.
