Age Spots or Solar Lentigo are a result of overexposure to the sun. They are light brown patches, that occur on sun-exposed areas of skin such as the face, arms, chest and back. Such lesions are induced by natural or artificial ultraviolet light sources. They are observed in all skin types, however they are less common in African Americans.
Your hands, face, and arms are susceptible to showing signs of aging. The natural aging process can lead to dark spots, freckles, and uneven skin tone.
Although spots and freckles may not appear to be serious to some patients, many prefer to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. Spot removal by Dr. Grimes in her Los Angeles office includes advanced lasers, light therapy, and more.
To learn more about available treatments for uneven skin tone or age spots, you can contact our office and schedule an appointment. Dr. Grimes will provide a thorough examination of your skin and determine the most precise approach to treatment.
