If your 20s involved plenty of outdoor frolicking, sunbathing, and minimal (or more accurately, zero) sunscreen, these are likely going to be the years in which those sunny sins of the past will become evident, particularly in the form of dark spots. Fear not: There’s a 21st-century technological innovation for that.
To combat the brown spots that have popped up, you may want to consider lasers, which can eradicate them in as little as one to three treatments. Indeed, lasers can be intimidating, but they’ve come a long way over the past two decades. With options like Frac 3 - a Light laser treatment for rejuvenation or Twin-Light skin rejuvenation becoming more and more common, there’s a host of options at a varying range of costs. These treatments will heal signs of aging faster and more effectively than any miracle cream.
