What causes dark spots?
Dark spots, also known as hyperpigmentation or age spots, are areas of darkened skin. They’re often caused by sun damage and aging. Other factors include freckles, post-inflammatory changes, and hormonal abnormalities such as those that occur during puberty or pregnancy.
When should I consider cosmetic treatments for dark spots?
There is no specific age to start treatment for dark spots, but it is recommended from a young age. The earlier you start, the better the chances that your dark spots will be completely evened out and no longer visible.
How do I know which dark spot treatment is best for me?
A brightening treatment may be more suitable if you have sensitive skin or a fair complexion. Or, if you want to lighten your acne scars and even out irregular pigmentation, a blemish control treatment is best. And if you want to simply look good when you walk outside, choose a brightening/whitening facial treatment.
