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. They can really ruin your self-confidence and they make millions of people become self-conscious about their appearance.
I personally have thousands of freckles, dozens of them on my face, but hundreds of more all over my body.
As we age, the damage of sun exposure, hormones, injuries and our skin type – make the condition much worse and really contributes an overall “older” looking skin.
Traditional Treatments and Why I don’t Like Them
The first line of treatment is usually bleaching creams. I don’t know about you, but I am seriously afraid of these chemicals getting into my blood stream and the damage they cause in the long run. 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 a laser clinic.
So…What Treatment is Effective, Natural and Not Expensive?
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 brown spots on my face were reduced in half. 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.
I’ve read quite a few red light therapy reviews, so I knew that my red light therapy device promised to enhance the overall appearance of my skin, improve skin tone and diminish fine lines, but I didn’t expect it to work for hyper pigmentation. By the way, red light therapy is also very effective for pain relief – Joint pain, muscle pain etc, so that’s an amazing bonus.
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 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.
What Are the Recommended Red Light Therapy Devices?
In my personal experience and research, the best devices are the Baby Quasar Red (Which I have at home) and the DPL Red Light Therapy. But you don’t have to trust me; you can read dozens of real reviews on Amazon right now.
