Reducing the Appearance of Dark Spots

Sun exposure and other factors related to aging can often cause dark spots to appear on your face, hands, shoulders, and upper chest. This process known as hyperpigmentation, causes excess melanin to form dark pigmentation areas in the skin’s epithelial cells, as an evolutionary response to excess sun exposure.

Because the brown spots develop over a long period of time, they are often permanently imbedded in the skin. Fortunately, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye offers products and procedures that can help reduce their appearance or possibly prevent future dark spots from forming.

There are several different formulations of skin brightening cream you might want to try. Some of the most effective brands use a glycolic acid base and Retin-A to reduce the appearance of dark spots. These creams can also be used in concert with exfoliation cream or exfoliated pads. For some people having Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye perform a microdermabrasion procedure, for further exfoliation.
