Age Spots on the Hands
Feb 02, 2012
This is a problem that bothers many women. They aren't really age spots; they are sun damage.
So the first thing is to start wearing a sun block on the hands daily and reapply as much as you can. It helps to wear gloves (fingerless) while driving if you spend a lot of time in the car. Antiaging creams like a 10-15% glycolic at night or TNS Recovery will help - try alternating them. But .... at the end of the day, those spots may require a laser. A series of 3 IPL treatments or 2 Fraxel Dual treatment (we have this now in our Seattle clinic) will help immensely.
I don't ever use or sell your email addresses, and I don't ask for any personal data from you. In a week or so, I am going to post a survey so that I can find out more about you. To entice you to complete the survey, I am going to have a drawing for some nice skin care products. More info soon!
Thanks for visting SkinTour!
Is sunscreen really needed if I'm at home? Problems with pigment increase after peels. Can Thermage, Exilis and Ultherapy be used for prevention? Are Dysport/Botox and Sculptra compatible? A problem! Which retinol is best for use on the delicate eye area? How does radiofrequency (Thermage & Exilis) compare with Ultherapy? All these different forms of Retin A (Renova, Atralin, tretinoin) -- arghhhh!
