“Overexposure to ultraviolet radiation and environmental pollutants can accelerate skin aging by degrading collagen and triggering oxidative stress in the skin” according to Life Extension Magazine.
Vitamin C Can Treat Dark Spots
Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a powerful antioxidant that can help rejuvenate skin. Life Extension Magazine also explains “ As the synthesis of new collagen slows down, topical vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis and slow its degradation”.
Here at Neu Look Med Spa in San Diego, we know that topical Vitamin C is 20 times more effective than oral ingestion for maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. But did you know that Vitamin C can also help dark spots? According to Dr. Oz “Age spots are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and may repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines.”
One of our absolute favorites at Neu Look Med Spa is Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic Serum. Its powerful combination of antioxidants help create firmer, brighter and more even toned skin. This product is applied once daily in the morning before your moisturizer and sunscreen. Many of the patients at Neu Look Med Spa start to see a reduction in their brown spots within a few weeks of using this Vitamin C Serum.
