Ask Cheryl: IPL for Brown Sunspots

Q: I had too much sun this summer and I now have some brown sunspots on my face and chest.  What do you suggest to get rid of them?

A: Brown sunspots, age spots and freckles develop on the parts of our body that are prone to sun exposure.  Luckily, these unsightly spots can be lightened or eliminated with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments.

IPL, sometimes referred to as a photo-facial, is a safe, FDA-approved method of utilizing flashes of light energy to break up the melanin that forms brown spots.  The procedure is quick and there is no downtime.  In addition to the face and chest, it is a great treatment for brown age spots on the hands.

IPL is an excellent choice for men and women who want beautiful, clear skin without having to cover up spots with makeup.

There are also some medical-strength home care products that can help fade brown spots.  We are have to provide a free consultation and tell you about both options.
