Sun exposure can impact the health of the skin. Skin spots, often called age, sun or liver spots, are common, caused by years of sun exposure. Most of these brown or grayish spots are harmless and more common as you get older. Since the spots are linked to aging, they can make you appear older. At HMS Plastic Surgery, we offer effective, non-invasive age spots removal at our center in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL area.
Age spots appear like freckles on the skin in a variety of sizes and shapes. The most common areas to see age spots are on the face, scalp, hands, chest and arms. The change in the tone of the skin is a recognizable sign of aging. Although brown spots can occur at any age, they are more frequently on individuals that are over the age of 50.
Sun spots can look similar to certain types of skin cancer. While most of these spots are not malignant, any suspicious skin growth should be examined by a dermatologist or doctor to determine whether it should be tested for cancer cells before or after it is removed.
Treatment for Sun Spots
Age or sun spot removal can be accomplished through a variety of skin treatments. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, skin resurfacing and laser treatments are common treatments that can fade or remove brown spots on the skin. These are non-invasive treatments that can not only remove age spots but may also improve the overall appearance of the skin.
At HMS Plastic Surgery, Dr. Harry Salinas and our team can provide solutions for improving the appearance of your skin. We can recommend advanced treatments that can remove cosmetic skin flaws like age spots with non-surgical treatments. Most age spot removal procedures can be performed in a brief office visit and do not require downtime after the treatment.
