Sun Spots

Brown spots, like age spots or freckles, are small, flat areas no bigger than the tip of your finger. We treat those spots with Intense Pulse Light treatments. IPL treatments are an easy way to target the dark pigmenting cells without damaging the regular skin cells. These treatments deliver energy to darkly pigmented cells. Then those cells die and flake off. The cells without the dark pigment don’t absorb the energy.

Chemical peels can also be very effective with sunspots but sometimes require several treatments. If you choose this route, preparation is key.

Damage from UV rays can cause major changes in the skin’s appearance and structure, including thinner skin, drier skin, less elasticity, increase in wrinkles or sagging, and reduced production of collagen and elastin.

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem that typically appears as brown or gray patches. It most commonly occurs on the face, especially on cheeks, the bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and upper lip. However, melasma can also develop on parts of the body that receive sun exposure, including the forearms and neck. Although it is not yet clear what causes melasma, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests that sun exposure, a change in hormones, and irritating skin care products can all contribute to the development of the skin condition. Furthermore, women and people with darker skin complexions are more likely to develop melasma.

Sun Damage

Excessive sun exposure is the most significant cause of aging skin. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun contributes to premature skin aging and skin texture changes, among other conditions:

  • Coarse wrinkles, especially on the back of the neck
  • Fine wrinkles caused by thinning of the skin, especially on the forearms and back of hands
  • Excessive bruising from minor trauma
  • Pigment changes, such as brown spots, freckles, age spots, and liver spots
  • White spots on legs, arms, and the back of hands
  • Red areas on the sides of the neck
  • Moles – some of which can develop into skin cancer
  • Pre-cancerous skin changes, including actinic keratosis

The Maqui berry grows wild on small evergreen trees throughout the Patagonia region of southern Chile. It is purported to have a lot of amazing health and nutritional benefits.

Here are some of the reported benefits of the Maqui berry:

The Maqui berry contains high levels of polyphenols, anthocyanins, quercetin, flavonoids, along with omega fatty acids, iron, calcium, vitamin C and potassium making it a very highly nutritious, high antioxidant fruit that can help to improve the immune system. Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that are formed when your body breaks down food and is responsible for aging and tissue damage. Thus by reducing the number of free radicals in the body, it is believed that this will lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and memory loss. The high antioxidant activity of the Maqui berry may also help to prevent the oxidation of the bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and stroke.

The high levels of anthocyanins in the Maqui berry also exhibit powerful anti-inflammatory properties that may help to reduce the amount of inflammation in bones and joints and reduce the onset of degenerative inflammation diseases. The Maqui berry’s anthocyanins contain a very high amount of delphinidins. Delphinidins is what gives the Maqui berry it’s rich deep purple color.

Delphinidins acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and has antiangiogenic properties. Antiangiogenic properties is used to stop the growth of tumors and the progression of cancers by limiting the formation of new blood vessels. Studies are being conducted to see whether delphinidins may be effective in inhibiting the growth of prostate and colon cancer cells.

Consuming the Maqui berry may cause a significant increase in the release of insulin in the body, which in turn helps to lower the circulating amount of glucose in the bloodstream and prevent the formation of new fat cells.

To show that the Maqui berry may be the new superfood, ponder this fact: the Acai berries contain ten times more antioxidant vitamins than grapes and twice as many as blueberries. The Maqui berry is reported to have an antioxidant level 4 to 30 times higher than the average Acai berry.

The Maqui berries currently contain the highest antioxidant value of any known superfruit.
