Age Spots on the Hands

E-Mail | Print | Share

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!
