Age Spots / Sun Spots

Age spots are harmless, flat, brown discolorations of the skin that usually occur on the back of the hands, neck and face as people age.

Sun spots are harmless as well and are caused by the skin being exposed to the sun over many years and are a sign of sun damage. Sun spots do not need to be treated from a health standpoint unless they are changing in shape and color.

Upper West Side Dermatology offers a variety of treatments to help remove and reduce age and sun spots. IPL Max G, Blu-U laser, medical products and other treatments can reduce the appearance of these spots faster, easier and less painfully than conventional treatments used in the past and with little to no downtime.
