A Chest Can Change Its Spots

Most cases of discoloration, age spots and freckles that appear on the chest are the result of repeated sun exposure. To eliminate their appearance, you may want to look into a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Fraxel laser treatments.

Additionally, some women experience a leathery texture and crinkly appearance on their chests due to the delayed effects of sun damage, but ablative and non-ablative fractionated laser treatments can refine skin texture, especially when used in combination.

Non-ablative laser treatments typically require no downtime, though you can expect some redness and swelling for a few days. Ablative laser treatments are not downtime-free, but they are very effective in achieving a visible improvement in the skin.

Remember, daily sunscreen use is imperative to maintain results and prevent further damage. Glycolic peels are also useful.
