It doesn’t matter how you call them – brown spots, age spots, hyper pigmentation, freckles – Most of us don’t like brown spots on our face.
I don’t why, and the fact that when you’re young they’re considered cute freckles and as you age they turn to brown spots/liver spots/age spots – Annoys me.
I personally have thousands of freckles (this is how I insist on calling them), dozens of them on my face, but hundreds of more all over my body.
Non the less, as we age, the damage of sun exposure, hormones, injuries and our skin type – make the “condition” much worse and really contributes to an overall “older” looking skin.
Why I’m against “Traditional” Treatments for Brown Spots on Face
Aside from photoshop, the first line treatment usually involves bleaching creams. Yikes.
I don’t know about you, but I would really like to avoid these chemicals from getting into my blood stream, not to mention the unkown long-term damage.
I am not a stained white T-shirt, and I don’t want to be bleached.
FYI, the risks include irritation, permanent hypo pigmentation (diminished pigmentation), increased pigmentation if you do not use sun block, and black speckles or discolorations.
Lotions and creams? Sorry, but these often just don’t work.
Chemical peels – Using Alpha hydroxy acids, or Beta hydroxy acids. Again, chemicals do not register well with me and I think people tend to ignore long term risks.
Laser skin resurfacing – This treatment seems to work, but for me it’s very expensive. I want something I can do at home and not spend my life savings on.
The Ultimate Natural Alternative
The answer my friends, is Red LED Light Therapy.
I have a red light therapy home device for a couple of years now. I bought it to try and reduce fine lines and wrinkles and I have to say it works beautifully.
After a few weeks of using it, I surprisingly noticed than the number of the brown spots on my face was reduced in at least a half.
I was thrilled and started using it on my hands as well (I had a few age spots there too) and after a few more weeks they were completely gone.
(By the way, red light therapy is also very effective for pain relief – Joint pain, muscle pain etc).
When Will You See Results?
It really depends on your skin type and the severity of your condition. Noticeable changes are typically seen within 30-45 days; but you will see more and more improvement as long as you continue to use the red light.
How Much Does It Cost?
Just until a few years ago, this treatment was only available in clinics. The good news is that there are a few excellent home devices now, most of them cost like one session in a clinic.
For the price of one session you can have unlimited access to your own device, and you can do it at the comfort of your own home.
My Recommeneded Home Devices
