The Solution: Brown Spot Removal Treatments Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light devices remove brown spots and patches from the skin by selectively targeting the melanin and melanocyte, leaving the other cells in the skin untouched.
This unique feature is why these procedures are the safest and most effective treatment choice for removing brown sun damage spots from the skin. Laser Treatment Lasers are a medical device which have changed and dramatically advanced the way we treat skin issues.
The definition of a laser can help you better understand why your laser procedure is so safe and effective. Lasers are unique light emitting devices which give off a single very specific wavelength of light-targeted to eliminate one issue or problem. Certain lasers have been designed to just remove brown spots; these devices break up the excess melanin causing the discolorations. The treatment is a quick office-based procedure and requires no anesthesia.
Generally 1-2 sessions give the best results.

1. SPF is your best friend.
One of the most frequent questions we get is whether you can skimp on SPF since it’s winter, or since you’ll be in the office all day.
Here’s a revealing quote from Skincancer.org: “While ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, the main cause of sunburn, are the strongest in the summer, ultraviolet A (UVA) rays remain constant throughout the year.
UVA rays account for up to 95 percent of the UV radiation reaching the Earth’s surface. Although they are less intense than UVB, UVA rays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent, and go through glass, making sun protection necessary indoors as well as out.”
Dermatologists often say that 90% of premature skin aging is due to UVA. Using an SPF at the last step of skincare, year round is essentially the best thing you can do for your skin. And since SPF can degrade on the skin when exposed to UV, finding a moment to reapply via a SPF Compact? Even better.
At 212SKIN, an additional goal is to curate more sunscreens in 2019, in addition to one of our favorites – Cerave Daily Sunblock SPF 50.

How to make your skin glowing trough Thanksgiving.
Anti-Aging Thanksgiving Meals.
It’s a time for indulgence and we say “Go ahead, indulge!” We’re going to tell you how to do it without compromising your complexion.
5 Anti-Aging Foods In Your Thanksgiving Meal
Besides being a wonderful source of protein that gives your body the amino acid building blocks it needs for strength and repair, turkey also contains an array of energizing B vitamins, especially B3, also known as niacin. Niacin converts to niacinamide in the body and this vitamin can help to rev up your skin’s cellular function as well as help cells retain moisture. In this way, niacin can contribute to a reduction in fine lines and an increase in skin’s elasticity and springiness. So carve away, this centerpiece to the Thanksgiving meal is also a healthful choice for your skin and overall health. In fact, Kate Ryan Skincare features niacinamide in several of our products because we’re so impressed by its anti-aging power. Find products containing niacinamide here.
2.) Green Beans
Perhaps not everyone’s favorite dish of the day as a child, we can certainly admit as adults that green beans are one of the best beauty boosters in your Thanksgiving meal. This legume is an excellent source of fiber, which is a handy pairing in a heavy meal. A bit of fiber is important for digestive health and this alone can keep skin clearer and healthier, but it also plays a role in helping you to remove water-soluble toxins from the body. This is critical for keeping skin radiant and glowing. Green beans are also rich in carotenoids like lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, and lycopene, all of which act as antioxidants to protect our skin from the aging effects of oxidative stress.
Thanksgiving might be the only time of year that a bowl of cranberries makes its way onto the table as an essential element of a meal. These tart little ruby red jewels pack a serious punch of anti-inflammatory phytonutrients called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Controlling inflammation in the body and the skin is one of the most important strategies in preventing premature signs of aging.
Cranberries are also an excellent source of collagen-protective vitamin C. Keep in mind though, cooking the cranberries to a palatable point does significantly diminish their level of vitamin C since it’s so sensitive to heat. Nonetheless, even trace amounts of vitamin C in combination with the anthocyanins that give cranberries their beautiful red color amount to powerful protection of collagen and elastin in our skin to keep it firmer and more resilient. We suggest a homemade cranberry sauce using less sugar since the canned jellies you’ll find at the market won’t carry the same beauty benefits.
4.) Pumpkin Pie
Yes, you read that correctly. Even your pie has its saving graces. Your typical pumpkin pie has plenty of sugar in it, but it’s not all bad. You can’t make a pumpkin pie without lots of cinnamon and studies have indicated that cinnamon may have the ability to control blood sugar spikes and regulate insulin thereby keeping inflammation under control as well. This might just keep all that sugar from causing a higher degree of inflammation-induced wrinkles or breakouts. More than just adding the perfect flavor to your pumpkin pie, pie spices like cinnamon provide major antioxidant protection. And let’s not forget that pumpkin itself is a nice source of beta-carotene which fights free radicals and can be converted by the body to anti-aging vitamin A.
5.) Sweet Potato
Speaking of vitamin A, sweet potatoes are one of the plant world’s best sources of provitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. The abundance of this carotenoid and other antioxidants along with the soluble fiber of sweet potatoes allows for their natural sugars to be absorbed at a rate that minimizes spikes in blood sugar. Between your sweet potatoes and your pumpkin pie, you’re getting a hefty dose of provitamin A that can keep your skin plump and glowing when these foods are prepared without excessive amounts of sugar.
