During the warmer months, many of us want to avoid face makeup as much as possible. However, for some people who have sun spots or pigmentation issues, it’s tough to completely avoid face makeup. At Vain Medi Spa in Andover, we offer a few treatments that can help minimize hyperpigmentation or even eliminate those spots completely. Before you assume you need makeup every day to cover these spots, continue reading to learn our recommendations for minimizing and getting rid of these spots. 


Preventing Sunspots 

Sunscreen should be your best friend when it comes to preventing sunspots. It’s recommended to wear sunscreen every day even if you’re not directly sitting out in the sun. If you already have sun spots, sunscreen can still work to keep them from getting bigger and darker. If you are directly in the sun all day remember to reapply every few hours! 


Chemical Peel Treatments

At Vain Medi Spa we offer TCA chemical peels. This peel is used to treat many skin concerns such as signs of aging, sun damage, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. During this treatment, the chemicals in the peel break up keratin which is a protein found in your skin. This causes the keratin to stop working properly which causes the outer layer of dead skin cells to peel off. By peeling off this outer layer of skin your skin tone will become more even and your skin’s texture will improve as well. If you’re interested in a chemical peel, set up a consultation with us today and we can talk about your skin concerns and this treatment in more depth!


IPL Treatments 

Our IPL (intense pulse light) treatment is a customizable skin rejuvenation treatment that delivers intense pulsed light through several layers of your skin to reverse sun damage, rosacea, and other skin discoloration issues. The intense pulse light heats the abnormal skin spots to break down the excess melanin which is then flushed out by your immune system. The light also stimulates the production of natural collagen which is important for keeping your skin clear and youthful. 

IPL treatments require little to no downtime so you won’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to heal. For best results, we recommend a series of 6 treatments over the course of 6 months.
