The Treatment

Broad Band Light

Broad Band Light is one of the best and most powerful light-based devices. It’s a non-invasive, light-based treatment that aids the skin. It treats numerous skin conditions such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, rosacea, and more. It improves skin texture by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen has many benefits, one of them being: making repairs to the skin after acne and acne scars.

MOXI Laser

MOXI is a new technology designed for all skin types. It’s safe to use any time of the year but is recommended after low sun exposure. Similar to BBL, it is beneficial for various conditions such as pigmentation, skin tone, texture, sun damage, and visible signs of aging. MOXI has many advantages: it is a fast treatment that can be done on ALL body areas, has long-lasting results, and can treat stubborn skin conditions such as melasma.

People with light skin are more likely to develop age spots, as are those with a history of frequent sunburn or sun exposure.

DIAGNOSIS OF AGE SPOTS
