What can I do about sun spots on my hands?
I look very good for my age but my only grudge would be the sun spots on my hands. They actually do show my age, so I was curious if there was any hand rejuvenation techniques or sun spot removal options that could make my hands look a little "younger?"
I had always taken good care of my skin, but about 5 years ago I started noticing similar dark spots on the tops of my hands. I have been pretty diligent over the past 10 years are so with applying sun screen, however I would rarely put it on the top of my hands. You kind of don't think about the sun exposure your hands get and never think they would get sunburn. However, sun damage can happen on your hands!
When I was 52 I got divorced, and was just feeling downright terrible about the spots on my hands when my sister surprised me for my birthday with a package deal of 5 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments through her plastic surgeon. I was hesitant because I didn't know anything about this procedure, but she had had great results removing visible brown spots, so I took the plunge and tried it. After just 3 painless treatments, the spots on my hands were gone! I honestly couldn't believe it, and I still have 2 left from the package if I ever need to go back.
