What are Age Spots
Age Spots, Sun Spots or Liver Spots. Pick a name, thy are all from the Sun and become more noticeable with age. As well as incresing in numbers as we get older. They are simple a result of too much time n the sun. Over decades of time. They are the result of your body’s own defense mechanism. They want to protect themselves from over sun-exposure. Simply put they overproduce melanin.
IPL’s promise the erasing or at least the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. While at the molecular level there may be a slight,temporary reduction in the appearance of fine lines. It will not last. The laser will absolutely stimulate Collagen production and trigger your skin to produce a bit more elastin. And these are all good things. The actual change in your face to the naked eye, is very minimal. Also very short term. But it will not help with age/sun spot removal. Or the appearence of those dark spots. Only the texture and feel of the skin.
Microneedling is one of the more effective facial treatments for the skins texture and appearance. You are essentially using a mlti-needle tattoo-like gun to puncture tiny holes in the skins surface. There are alot of versions offered by most Salons. You can use serums like Hyaluronic Acid. Using the gun as a delivery system to get the product deep into the tissue. This along with the actual damage being done to the skin, will promote the body’s natural healing response to create elastin and collagen production.
Vampire-Facials are the same as Microneedling process. The serums would be replaced with your PRP.PRP is your blood(yes correct) drawn by a on site phlebotomist.It is spun down to a concentrate of Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP.
