Dark Spots


Thank you for your question. Without seeing a picture it is difficult to recommend a specific treatment. With that being said, you can consult with your physician about lasers, peels, and skin care lines like Obagi. Good luck

Dark Spot Removal

There are many options for dark spots which include topicals, peels, lasers, and other modalities. There are also many factors that go into choosing a specific treatment. Have a consultation with a Board Certified Dermatologist to determine what treatment will give you your desired and safest plan of action.

Removal of Dark Spots

In my office, I would suggest doing a combination of skin lightening, bleaching creams which contain hydroquinone along with a product like Retinol containing vitamin A.  The other treatment option would be a Chemical Peel which can be used to improve the skin tone from sun spots and age spots.  You should always wear a sun screen to prevent the spots from recurring. It’s best to schedule a consultation with a certified dermatologist to find out the best options for your skin.  Best, Dr. Green

Dark Spot Removal

Lightening creams like Hydroquinone can be used but depends on how many spots there are and what type. A photofacial or laser treatment may be needed to remove the spots first. Then consider hydroquinone for maintenance and a physical sunblock to protect your skin. It's better to schedule an in person consultation to find out the best options for your skin.

Lasers vs Peels vs Creams vs Diagnosis for spots

It would depend on the type of age spot, as Dr Kim suggested - you have to ensure this is not cancerous. Then depending on the type of spot, your ethnic skin type and your goals, peels or lasers can help. 

An assessment is the very first step.

All the best,

Age spot removal

I always recommend that patients be evaluated by a board certified dermatologist in order to correctly diagnose the "dark spot" and make sure that it is not cancerous.  Once we have established that it is not a cancerous lesion, we can proceed with a number of medical treatments.  Over the counter, serums and creams typically do not work well to remove dark spots.

We recommend patient start with a prescription lightening cream (with hydroquinone, vitamin A and mild steroid) and apply it for 3 months.  If there is still no improvement, then the next step involves chemical peels and/or IPL or other lasers.
