Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often a result of skin ageing and over exposure to sun or sunbeds. From the age of 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from damage caused by sun exposure and pigmentation marks start to appear. Generaly these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and creat a patchy less youthful appearance. Freckles and age spots are sucessfuly removed or lightened with IPL.
Not all pigmetation concerns are a result of sun exposure and some people may be born with pigmented birth marks or may have melasma, a pigmented skin condition associated with hormones.
