Sun spots are a major skin problem for many men and women as they age. These spots are caused by exposure to UV rays, and can cause a person to look older than they actually are or feel inside. It is important to protect the skin from overexposure to the sun from a young age in order to prevent not only dark spots but also premature wrinkling and even precancerous lesions and skin cancer. Skin cancer is the number one type of cancer in America, even though it is also the most easily preventable. This is why it’s important to see a dermatologist for regular skin checkups even if you don’t think there’s anything wrong – catching skin cancer early makes a big difference in how easily it can be treated!
Remove Unwanted Skin Pigmentation

Each of these methods has been proven to work well with a low risk of unwanted side effects when performed by a skilled and board-certified dermatologist with expertise in removing unwanted skin pigmentation.
Laser skin resurfacing can work wonders for removing dark, unwanted pigmentation in the skin on the face, chest, and hands – the three most visible areas and “tell zones” that can make you look older. There are a wide variety of cosmetic lasers available that range from mild to aggressive and can be customized to fit your unique needs, lifestyle, and goals after a skin evaluation by a skilled dermatologist in a personalized, in-person consultation to create a unique treatment plan.
