Age Spots / Pigmentation

You may have sun-derived or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) if the areas of pigmentation are like freckles, are more apparent with sun exposure and not usually symmetrical on the face.

They can appear as a larger cluster of pigmentation in some areas. Inflammation from the sun, or chemical peels and lasers, can result in a wound that does not heal. Especially if the injury is severe or results from repetitive wounding as is the case in most age spots. The wound does not heal for a variety of reasons and often appears as a small red spot on the skin. Age spots and PIH are simply the body making an “umbrella” of protection using melanin as its tool.

To make it go away we need to heal the underlying chronic wound. That can be achieved with Osmosis by using products that repair DNA and oxidative damage.
