As we age our skin is subjected to damage from UV light from the sun. One of the effects of this is to produce melanin pigment in the skin which helps protect us from the damaging effects of UV light. However, over time disordered pigment is deposited in the form of freckles and brown spots.
The Obagi Nu-Derm system is a very effective way to treat age spots and general signs of ageing at home. You would need an initial consultation with Dr Brooks to check it is the right treatment for you and also to be prescribed the products as they are prescription only.

The Déesse Mask, the original market leading LED phototherapy mask, uses near infrared light (830NM) and green light (520NM) to regulate the production of melanin and to lighten and reduce existing pigmentation. It is a simple, non-invasive treatment that has no downtime. Best results are achieved with a course of 6 treatments.
It is important to check with a doctor if a mole enlarges, changes colour, itches or bleeds to make sure it is not a skin cancer.
