If there’s one place besides the face that we should protect from the sun, it’s the skin on the chest. And on the hands. Oh, and the skin on your neck and shoulders. I hope I’ve made my point. It’s important to protect your skin from head to toe from the damage and potential health risks of sun exposure.
Sun damage is your constant reminder of past mistakes
Those suntans and sunburns earlier in life may seem like no big deal. The skin might peel and flake, and by winter, everything is back to normal. Then one year, you notice some spots left behind that you never had before.
Brown spots and discoloration are proof that the damage has been done, but it’s not too late to work toward a spot-free future. Start by committing to always wearing sunscreen.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial
IPL delivers a broad spectrum of light energy that passes through the skin to damage and destroy the blood vessel and melanin that cause unwanted spots. IPL treatments also encourage collagen production, which improves the skin’s natural elasticity and appearance.
IPL photo facial treatments can be used for your face, neck, chest and hands
This popular procedure can reduce and even erase many signs of past mistreatment of your skin by
- Lightening sunspots
- Removing sunspots
- Treat brown blotchy spots
- Reducing redness (which can also be caused by rosacea, acne, and dilated or broken blood vessels)
- Decreasing large pores
Fraxel laser treatment works below the skin’s surface to treat sun damage and spots, as well as fine lines, wrinkles and even scarring. Fraxel’s light energy also works to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production for a more youthful appearance. Fraxel can rejuvenate your skin so that past sun damage can stay in the past.
