Age Spots on the Hands

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!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
