Age spots are caused by excess melanin that rises to the surface of your skin and morphs freckles or brown patches into age spots.
Age spots can act as an obvious sign of age, which many people may find embarrassing or upsetting. We help individuals reduce the signs of these spots – offering them a new lease on life.
At Skin Philosophy, we are able to offer an effective reactive treatment that over the course of 3-6 weeks, helps skin pigmentation gradually fade. Using IPL Photo Rejuvenation or CryoPen, we are able to offer an incredibly accurate method of treatment that has helped all our clients feel brighter, lighter and more youthful.
Intense Light for Pigmentation
IPL Photo Rejuvenation effectively reduces skin pigmentation in approximately 3-6 visits. The heat of the light is absorbed into the melanin and breaks down the pigment at its core.
After your IPL treatment, the skin pigmentation or sun spots will gradually fade and slowly disappear, however in some instances the pigment may appear darker as it heals itself whilst in other cases it can flake up in a bid to eliminate the pigment in an external form.
IPL Photo-rejuvenation also stimulates collagen production, thickening and firming thin crepey skin helping with Ageing Hands
Cryopen for Pigmentation
The CryoPen™ emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This means the N2O is delivered directly to the treated area and not to the healthy surrounding tissue.
The tissue is destroyed by freezing the intracellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. It is an incredibly accurate and practical method for removal of skin imperfections. The area will go darker after treatment, and flake/slough away to reveal new skin.
