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!

SkinTour Skincare
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! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
