Age spots (lentigenes)
Extensive sun exposure can cause brown spots (known medically as lentigenes) of various shapes and sizes most commonly on the face, chest, forearms, and backs of the hands.  This causes a blotchy and uneven mottled complexion that results in a more aged skin appearance.  Many safe, effective treatments including topical creams, cryotherapy (freezing), chemical peels, and various lasers and light devices are now available for evening skin tones.  The foundation of age spot treatment is rigorous daily sun protection to both prevent further damage, allow for skin repair, and to maintain improvement after corrective treatments. Since each individual is different, careful consultation and treatment planning is required for a complete and personalized rejuvenation plan.
