Best spot treatment: Rather than shopping by price, you should look for someone who will give you some insight as to why these therapies have not met your expectations.

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.

See a plastic surgeon specializing in skin rejuvenation. ...Read more

Age spots: These "liver" or "age" spots, o/w called senile or solar lentigines, are very common over 40. Of course with pigmented lesions it is very important to consider more serious, and possibly life-threatening forms such as malignant melanoma.
