Over-exposure to the sun, either as a natural source or from sun beds, can result in sun damage to the skin. Brown spots on the skin, such as liver spots or age spots can make the person look older and for cosmetic reasons they may then prefer to have them removed.
Both laser and IPL treatments will give visible results even after just one treatment and a course of treatment will give an improved skin tone and the client will enjoy restored confidence in their appearance.
Sun damage and pigmentation which may be treated include:
• Age spots
• Sun spots
• Liver spots
