Age spots and freckles are a common form of hyper pigmentation, which is a build up of melanin in the skin, usually associated with over sun exposure. They can occur anywhere on the body, predominantly to the face, décolletage and hands and at any age.
To reduce or remove pigmentation marks, you usually would need to use products which include the ingredient Hydroquinone, which will help to lighten the area and remove the brown patches on your skin.
Where can I get some help?
Some pigmentation is deeper than others, so it is important to have a consultation with a skincare specialist before buying any hydroquinone based product. Visit Melior Clinics Skin Clinic in Harley Street for a free skin consultation.
Products such as Obagi Clear will help with superficial pigmentation whereas a combination of Obagi Blender and Obagi Tretinoin will help with deeper pigmentation. These products can also be used as a pre-conditioning programme prior to an Obagi blue peel.
