Last Chance To Save 20% on Acne and Blemish Treatments

Acne isn’t just an issue for teens and many adult women complain to me about breakouts in their thirties and forties. Many of these women weren’t bothered by acne as teens and don’t have any idea how to treat redness, blotchiness and pimples associated with breakouts. Here is a video explaining my anti-acne regimen, which starts with a basic skin care routine and adds Advanced Acne Solution and Blemish Corrector to treat acne spots. Consistent care will take care of even the most stubborn adult acne, and can be incorporated into your daily skin care routine.

Suffering From Unwelcomed Sun Spots?

Brown spots, age spots, sun spots, liver spots – whatever you call them, they can make you look older than you really are. These spots can appear on people younger than 40, but are more common in our 40s and up. While bothersome and unattractive, they are generally harmless.

So what should you do if you have brown spots? First, prevention! Keep your skin healthy and protected with a good sunblock. Second, treat the spots. Age spots can be lightened or even removed with a daily routine using exfoliating and pigment-blocking products. AHA Face Cream and AHA Body Smoothing Lotion contain alpha hydroxy to remove dead skin cells and leave skin rejuvenated.  Use the AHA products in combination with Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Formula, to lighten brown spots and even out skin tone. The Pigment Formula uses a combination of kojic acid and plant extracts of thyme and arbutin with soothing cucumber to reduce skin discolorations, and zinc and vitamin E for cell renewal. These natural ingredients block the production of melanin, which is the cause of the discoloring.

Growing demand for treatment of brown spots

According to Elle magazine, September 2012, in the United States, we are very devoted to moisturizers and collagen-boosting serums, but our demand for brown spot lightening is steadily rising, especially since publication of a 2006 study, indicating that hyperpigmentation can impact on a woman’s perceived age by up to twenty years.

The Japanese spend a huge percentage of their beauty dollars on targeting “shimi.” Here we call them “spots” and they can apply to any skin discoloration, including freckles, UV-induced brown patches, melasma and those pinpoint spots that remain after a pimple has healed.

Elle spoke with the Pola Orbis Group in Fukuroi, Japan, which has some of the most extensive skin data in the world. Lesson number one is that not all brown spots are the same; there are those caused by 1) cumulative sun damage, appearing on cheeks, temples and the back of the hands; 2) freckles, which proliferate from sun exposure; 3) post inflammatory pigmentation, resulting from trauma to the skin; and 4) melasma (pregnancy mask, associated with fluctuations in female hormones), appearing in large symmetrical patches across the cheeks and forehead. Surprisingly, the sun’s rays are not the only culprits; allergies, heat and even stress can provoke brown spots.

So what should you do if you have brown spots? First, prevention! Keep your skin healthy and protected with a good sunscreen. Second, treat the spots. Age spots can be lightened or even removed with special in-office treatments. Dr. Copeland has also developed topical skin care products which you can use at home to help reduce the appearance of brown spots.

I’ve developed a special regimen for brown spots using these products  specifically for the in-home treatment of brown, age and sun spots. For more pervasive brown spots, a visit to the office for laser treatments will help eliminate those spots.

More on laser treatments from ivillage

“Aging hands need a combination of therapies” from Is Laser Treatment Right For You?

Old hands make you look, well, old. The culprits being wrinkles, brown spots and thick veins at the surface of your skin. The same non-ablative lasers used on the face can also be used on the hands to smooth and tighten the skin, says Dr. Copeland. Lasers also target brown spots, causing them to flake off leaving a red spot that fades after a little downtime. “That can go a long way with making your hands look much better and younger,” says Copeland. (Lasers can also shrink prominent veins). Supplement your laser treatments will fillers like Juvederm, a gel filler used to smooth away wrinkles and plump your hands for a more youthful look.

Skin care Q & A with Dr. Copeland

Over the next few days Dr. Copeland will answer frequently asked questions from her patients.

Do you have a skin care question for Dr. Copeland? Please email us: customerservice@drcopelandskincare.com

 

I have 4 brown age spots on my face.  I  am 58 yrs. old.  What is a good product to help this problem? 

Before and after using Advanced Acne Formula and Pigment Formula.Using an Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliating cream once or twice daily will gently exfoliate your skin without irritating or flaking. The AHA cream stimulates cell renewal, and contains Kojic acid, a potent pigment-reducing agent that helps even out skin tone.

After exfoliating, use the Pigment Formula, which efficiently helps reduce the appearance of brown spots, sun spots, and liver spots. Applied twice daily after the AHA cream, this powerful pigment lightening formula helps lighten skin discolorations, but be patient because it takes 6-8 weeks for brown pigment to fade.

You might also try using the Microdermabrasion Formula once a week before applying the AHA cream or Pigment Formula, for deep exfoliation which will help correct environmental damage.

Of course there are other steps to help improve your skin’s appearance, like daily use of Rewind Advanced Day Serum  loaded with hyaluronic acid and a powerful blend of anti-wrinkle ingredients to plump and brighten your skin.

The most important step to reducing the appearance of brown spots is sunblock. I recommend using the SPF-40 Lotion Mist Sun Block to provide UVA/UVB ray protection and help prevent sun-induced damage. Following with a layer of sunblock after exfoliating and brightening will help reduce the activation of pigment cells, which will help your pigment reducer work more effectively.
