Spot the difference – targeted anti sun spot-treatment
Sun spots, liver spots or age spots – call them what you will, they appear on most people at some stage. Sun spots are very common in adults over 40 and up to 90 per cent of fair skinned people over 60 get them*.
Spotner, fresh from Europe, targets and erases the sun spots and protects from further damage.
The Spotner pen is now available in pharmacies for the face and décolletage and also for the hands and body. Spotner contains a powerful mix of botanical extracts, alpha arbutin, alpha-‐hydroxy acids (AHA’s), salicylic acids (BHAs) and lactic acid to help encourage the regeneration of the skin without causing irritation.
Unlike creams and lotions, its precise pen-tip application means you target the treatment exactly where you need it every time. Results are visible within two weeks. The Spotner pen can be used in conjunction with other cosmetics and creams and sun spots can potentially fade completely with continued use.
Expensive and timely salon treatments such as laser therapy, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. In addition to treating existing sun damage, Spotner also helps protect against further damage to the skin and reduces the reappearance of age-spots.
While people are becoming increasingly conscious of protecting themselves from the sun, even small increases in sun exposure or changing hormones, such as what can be experienced during pregnancy, can increase the likelihood of getting sun spots. Sun spots are caused by the over production of melanin, which exists to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
Imbalance in the production of melanin due to genetics or factors such as prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the occurrence of sun spots. While the presence of sun spots has no relevance to your age, your resilience to sun exposure deceases as you get older making you more susceptible to them.
Spotner is available nationally in all good pharmacies RRP $29.95. For more info www.spotner.com.au
Note: Do seek medical advice if your sunspot rapidly increases in size, has an irregular edge or is accompanied by itching, redness, tenderness or bleeding. Spotner has no reported interactions during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding. If you are in doubt, please consult your doctor.
