New York City Dermatologist, Dr. Eric Schweiger uses a variety of lasers to removal unsightly brown spots.
Age Spots, Brown Spots & Freckles
Solar lentigines are brown spots often found on the face and hands that are commonly referred to as “age spots” or “liver spots”. These unsightly spots are primarily the result of chronic sun exposure, as well as genetic susceptibility. Contrary to common belief they have nothing to do with age or the liver although one may get more as they get older (cumulative sun exposure). In addition to the face and hands, lentigines can often occur on the chest, arms and any sun exposed areas.
Solar lentigines can be safely and effectively removed by a variety of different laser treatments. Sometimes, one treatment is enough to eradicate most brown spots safely and effectively. Often a second or third treatment will be necessary to treat the remaining lesions. Freckles on the face, chest, and back can also be effectively treated with lasers.
