I am 36 years old and really starting to get brown spots on my face. It I remember correctly, my great grandmother whose skin I have, had a lot of them. I really don't want them!!! However, microderm hasn't worked and I heard the laser doesn't really work that well either. you often end up with white patches! Any advice?
I just suggested this to another poster, so I'll copy and paste what I said there, since its addressing the same thing. I do not know much about professional (and expensive) microderm treatments, but one product that I have seen do miracles with my own eyes is the Mary Kay Microdermabrasion set. The set is only like $50, and lasts for quite a while. I do not know much about your specific skin problem, but a friend of mine had a lot of sun spots and just general aging. The consultant used this product on only half of her face and you could totally see a difference! Since its not that expensive- compared to a medical treatment- perhaps its something you could look into and give it a try? Their products are 100% guaranteed, so if you don't like it, you can just send it back! In fact, it works best in collaboration with all of their products, but you can use just this one set if you want.
my mom use to have them when she was in her 30's..Then for some reason they went away..Then my oldest sister got them and her doctor told her it was the pill..When she got off of birth control they went away..
maybe it is somthing differnt but hopes this helps
stop spamming for Marykay -- If she takes your advice, she'll have broken blood vessels to go with her brown spots! "microdermabrasion" -- even the name is misleading. you can't have dermabrasion without the high-speed appliance used by dermatologists, etc)
exfoliating will cause a temporary improvement but the safest way to do it is via salicylic, fruit, glycolic acids, retin-a, retinol (salicylic acid is safest for olive skins, asians, african american skin -- anything too strong and the skin perceives it as an injury and pumps out all the more melanin.
