I spend a lot of time working outdoors and I've just noticed my first visible sign of sun damage - a dark or age spot. Confused Any recommendation for remedying age spots?

At this point I'm considering one of these:

I sort of resemble a leopard at this point in my life (had I known I was going to live this long, I would have ....!), so I can sympathize. All I know about the spot removal stuff is that my dermatologist says it's quite temporary, and it's necessary to use it every day.

I have a lot of that, thanks to living outdoors for 30+ years. Not much you can do about it I think.

Ben, go to a dermatologist. All those over the counter products won't help you much.

SWMBO had some spots, since her teens and nothing could remove it. She went to the doctor and a laser treatment plus hydroquinone resolved it for good. But this has to be done during the winter as you can get worse spots if you don't use proper sun protection during the treatment. Smile

A good hat and moving to Vancouver might do it for you! As long as you can deal with the rain and darkness! Biggrin

Ben, while I have age spots and (at my age) am not overly concerned, I agree with those who suggest checking with your doctor or dermatologist first. Those products, and others, will still be on the shelves later on, if you still want to give them a go. The products you are looking at sort of remind me of the creams that "get rid of wrinkles." Yeah, right! Rolleyes

Yes, good advice Freddy, but I'm rather time poor and unlikely to invest the effort or money visiting a specialist. I'm seeking the lazy man's intervention! As far as wrinkles go the only method I've fround that works is a hot iron... Tongue

With my sun damaged skin I've noticed better results with Unrefined Shea Butter than I have with laser treatments, and peels. However, I do have a form of alopecia that causes my skin to heal slowly.

I went to the best to address my sun damage; I use Reverse by Dr Rodan and Dr Fields. These two Stanford trained dermatologists have created prescription based products available without a prescription. I order Reverse from here http://mrockford.myrandf.com/Shop/Reverse and it comes with a money-back guarantee. I highly recommend this brand.

Laser Treatment is one option and will work. Can get costly though. I wouldn't suggest opting to use hydroquinone. There are many other natural lightning ingredients out there that work just as good.

There are a lot of Chemical Peels you can do yourself which are very easy to do and you will save yourself a ton of money. Check out Makeup artists choice website. They have high quality chemical peels at the best prices.

Jessners peel and the Fade Peel would be a good place to start and will help your situation but make sure to use Sunscreen everyday and I would recommend a sunscreen with Zinc Oxide.

I could go more in depth on why these peels will help you but then I would be writing a book lol. So do some research on chemical peels and the ingredients that are in these peels and you will see why they will help. The fade peel especially has a lot of good lightening actives that will help fade your dark mark. The percentages are good and the PH is low which is crucial. OTC Products will not fade age spots.

Hope this helps and good luck.
