Age spots on arms

How to prevent/reduce age spots on arms?

Sometimes I see older ladies have great face skin but their arms look really old (wrinkled and have age spots). I had age spots on my face but I have lasered them so my face is ok. However, I can see my arms are aging. The number of age spots are increasing... :(

What is the skincare regime for arms?

Tell your dermatologist you also want to laser your arms. :rotflmao:

Jennifer,
SKII is expensive to apply on arms :sweat:

icy_mama,
The doctor lasered the spots. The crust (dried blood) will fall off after around 1 week. In that 1 week it is very embarrassing to go out lah. Mine only need 1 time and so far so good (it has been 2.5 years and the spots didn't come back).

Pirate,
Expensive lah to laser the whole arms :moneyflies:

I think I have to find sunblock that is not sticky. Those that we use for swimming are so sticky...

This thread is making me conscious!

ngl2010, think there are creams with sun-protection that supposedly acts like sun block but yet keeps skin moisturised.
