Shh! Anti-agers nobody, but you should know: how can I remove sun spots for my wedding?
- An anonymous reader asked Inge van Lotringen for advice about sun-damaged skin
- Cosmopolitan beauty director spoke with Dr. Tapan Patel at the Phi Clinic in London
- He proposes four courses of VI shells, each costing £ 300
Q: I want to look great for my wedding with my beautiful fiance next summer. I'm 58 and sun damage and stress have taken their toll, but I especially want to lift the bottom half of my face. With so many options available, where do I start?
A: I don't blame you because you haven't seen the forest for the trees! Lifting the bottom surface is heavy and therefore expensive. So Dr. Tapan Patel from the Phi Clinic in London (phiclinic.com) for focusing on tackling sun damage for radiant, fresher skin that looks much younger.

He recommends a course (usually four) of VI peels (viaesthetics.com), intense (but not painful) chemical peels that have no downtime, apart from a few days of flaking and mild pinkness (what on that SPF50).
At Phi they cost £ 300 each. Three months between the peels is recommended, so start quickly. The other option, and still the best I've tried to look fresher and, yes, more than a year younger, is an injectable facelift, where a doctor strategically administers small amounts of filler over the entire face for an imperceptible but noticeable lift and structure.
It brought me back £ 1,995 with Dr. Patel. Expensive, but you really need a good doctor.
Do your research and ideally find a clinic that offers both options and will discuss the best for you.
