Age spots. Believe it or not, these spots on skin have very little to do with age. Age spots are brownish spots that begin to appear on your face and body, due to overexposure to the sun that damage your skin. Repeat exposure to UV rays damages your skin, and over time, the chances of developing signs of sun damage rises. This is why the once youthful look of skin, is blemished by age spots. To treat age spots there are the traditional over-the-counter formulas that may not be as effective. And there are also the options of microdermabrasion, chemical peels, spot treatments, laser treatments, and light therapy that can be costly and take several sessions for effective results. Offering a great new approach to treating age spots, Olay brings an effective option right to your home with Olay Professional Pro-X Even Skin Tone.
Olay Professional Pro-X Even Skin Tone is a skin care regimen, clinically tested to addresses the five root causes of uneven skin tone appearance and to help correct the look of 4 years of dark spots in 4 weeks! Clinical testing showed the regimen is an effective alternative to the prescription gold standard 4% HQ technology for evening skin tone appearance, while providing better hydration and texture appearance benefits.
Until now, it was commonly assumed that uneven skin tone was mainly caused by pigment production or melanogenesis. Breaking ground with new genomics research, the Olay Professional Alliance has demonstrated that only 7% of the gene expressions disrupted in spotted skin were directly associated with melanogenesis. Four additional causes were identified as being associated with root causes of uneven skin tone. These causes include UV exposure, lack of hydration, discoloration, weak moisture barrier and surface free radicals. To effectively address and correct the look of uneven skin tone, it is essential for products that address skin tone appearance to contain multiple ingredients that target all five of these root causes.
