Katherine Manion wishes she could take back her teenage years, she says, "I can see the aging now, I have age spots all over my body that I never had before." kari Feinstein, a medical technician with Enlighten in Dallas says that after the suntan fades people start going, "Oh my gosh looks what that burn has left, all these new spots and broken blood vessels!"
She says procedures like photofacials can reverse the samage we've done. It's intense pulse therapy, wich is very bright light that is attracted to pigment. In about ten minutes the laser zaps sun spots, which then darken and flake off after about a week. You should avoid the sun after treatments, which is why getting this procedure now is the best time of year.
What else can you do to protect your skin? Kari says, "Exfoliate the dead skin, use a vitamin C serum to prevent new pigmentation from happening, reapply sunscreen and use a retinol or retin A to stimulate collagen."
