Start with the Kareskin Brightening Kit followed with Melarase creams followed by Clear and Brilliant laser to help reduce and maintain clearance of age spots.
Physicians Who Treat Age Spots
I would recommend consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, or board certified dermatologist in your geographical area to determine that your age spots are not malignant. Each practice would have vast experience with various laser treatments. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Lumecca has demonstrated effectiveness in removing age spots after several treatments.

I use Fraxel 1927 as my preferred laser of choice, however there are many ways to treat age spots, including laser resurfacing (full), PDT, and TCA peels.

Physicians for Age Spots
certified dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or oculofacial plastic surgeon in your area before exploring alternative treatments. The practice would preferably have a vast experience with different lasers and an active laser practice. Given your age and tendency to burn, it is important to ensure that the age spots you are noticing are benign. Assuming all is well with your exam, there are many options for treating age spots such as BBL laser treatment, HALO hybrid resurfacing, laser resurfacing, fading creams, chemical peels, etc.
An exam is always the first step in treatment.

Age spots can be striated by an specialist in skin care like a board certified plastic surgeon and/or a board certified dermatologist. It is important to look for an plastic surgeon or dermatologist that specializes on skin care.
Options for managing age spots are non-surgical like Obagi Nu Derm, and more invasive like Chemcial peels and laser resurfacing.
Look for a doctor that discusses skin care and has the option of IPLs or BBLs in the office. These two tools can be very helpful is smoothing the color of the skin.
By the way, remember to always wear sun screen to protect your skin and prevent more spots! (Even on cloudy days)
