A Chest Can Change Its Spots
By NewBeauty Staff |
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.
