Age Spotlight Therapy

The IPL machine is one of the workhorses of any self-respecting cosmetic clinic. It’s not the newest technology, but it is one of the safest and most useful.

The flashes of light that the machine delivers are absorbed by red or brown pigment in the skin which is then cleared out by the body, so it’s great at softening brown age spots on the hands.

As treatments go, it’s easy, quick and inexpensive - and it works.

How It Feels

My hands are covered in a clear gel that conducts the light from the machine into my skin. Each zap feels like a tiny pin prick, and it’s very quick.

The Results

I don’t have many visible brown marks on my hands thanks to a long-term sunscreen habit, but there are plenty building up beneath the surface. A few weeks after treatment, these become almost invisible, which is very satisfactory. I’m keeping up with the SPF hand cream, to keep them at bay.
