I'm 33 years old and have developed brown aging spots all over my legs since giving birth. How do I get rid of them? (photo)

I am 33 years old and since the birth of my first son, 4 years ago, I've developed brown spots all over my legs. They look like aging or some refer to them as liver spots. Is there a way to get rid if these spots?

Thank you for your question.

Treatment with Broad Band Light or Intense Pulsed Light, IPL may be helpful.

To be sure, see two or more licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.

I hope this helps.

Hi Avebrown.  These look like lentigines (standard sun spots) or seborrheic keratosis (slightly raised sun spots).  Either way, both of the concerns are treated (at our practice) with q-switched lasers.  

Check the before and after pictures at the link below to see brown spots on the legs removed for a Los Angeles patient.  Good luck!
