Age spots are flat brown-black spots that usually occur in sun-exposed areas on the body. Age spots are sometimes called brown spots or liver spots. They are completely unrelated to the liver or liver function. Liver spots, et al. are changes in the skin color associated with older skin. The increased pigmentation of age spots is brought on by aging, exposure to sun or to other forms of ultraviolet lights.
Age spot removal is a painless procedure. Using the Photoderm laser, we remove the spots in a careful and safe manner. After treatment, you will see an immediate improvement at the site of the age spots.
