As we age, wrinkles become more prominent. Skin under the eye ages faster than other parts of our face because it’s thin and very delicate. Though wrinkles are associated with ageing, some people tend to develop wrinkles at a very early age. These are due to some habits that are known to speed up its appearance such as repetitive facial movements, going under the sun without wearing sunscreen, bad diet, smoking and poor sleeping habits can exacerbate the appearance of wrinkles.
Similarly, brown spots and hyperpigmentation are linked to sun exposure. In many cases, the consequences of not protecting yourself from the sun can be seen years afterwards. Brown spots are often referred to as sunspots, dark spots or liver spots and usually appear on exposed areas of the body such as the face, shoulders and arms. They also vary in size. It is essential to know that brown spots may be as a result of hormonal fluctuations or side effects of certain medication such as tetracycline or psychotropic drugs.
Brown spots can be lightened and diminished over time with creams and serums. These may contain retinols, hydroquinone, topical vitamin C etc. It is important to understand that each of these treatment options comes with its own set of risks. It may be helpful to seek the help of a dermatologist before opting for any product.
Brown spots can also worsen if not taken care of properly. When your spots begin to darken or widen, or show discolorations, then you should book an appointment immediately.
At Clinique Grace, we offer several treatments that can be used to remove dark spots or wrinkles, including mesogold, peeling and exilis.
Mesogold has an extremely wide range of applications. Benefits include the reduction of fine lines, face wrinkles, brows spots, scars, nasolabial folds and hollow, stretch marks and treating hair loss.
Typically, Mesogold therapy results last for three to four months, and another session is recommended afterwards. When mesotherapy is combined with certain topical treatments like serums or creams, the results can last longer.
As for exilis, it is a non-evasive treatment for wrinkles approved by the FDA. In Exilis , precise radio frequency energy is delivered to deep layers of the skin. This results in the shrinkage of fat cells and remodelling of collagen-supporting tissue networks. This procedure restores skin elasticity to the face and body, without invasive surgery. It can be used virtually anywhere on the body.
Finally, it is important to note that brown spots can be better treated with a chemical peel, which involves removing the outer layer of old skin with a chemical solution. When it is replaced, the new skin usually appears smoother and less wrinkled.
These are majorly three kinds of peels. These include:
- Superficial peels
- Medium peels
- Deep peels
