What is the best (reasonably priced) way to fade age spots on my face. Tried laser and some creams. Spots, veins and ruddiness remain. I'm only 41! :(?

What is the best (reasonably priced) way to fade age spots on my face. Tried laser and some creams. Spots, veins and ruddiness remain. I'm only 41! :(?

Some expectations are simply unreasonable. Improvement is always the goal, not perfection. A good place to start is the dermatologist (i hope) who did your laser treatment. ...Read more

Age -spots treatment ; is renova (tretinoin) cream best?

Age -spots treatment ; is renova (tretinoin) cream best?

Age Spot Treatment: Renova, (tretinoin) in my opinion, has no place in treating any skin condition. Retin-a replenishes collagen & reduces wrinkles. To treat spots requires hydroquinone. This can be used alone, but is best combined with retin-a, an Alpha hydroxy to remove abnormal cells, a pH restorer and a sun block. The obagi nu-derm system is the best way to do this. See a plastic surgeon specializing in skin rejuvenation. ...Read more

Can age spots become cancerous? I have noticed what i think is my first age spot.  Should i be concerned that it could turn cancerous?

.
