Leave them alone. They'll fade over the months. ...Read more

Since you treat each one differently, the treatment will depend on what is found. ...Read more

Yes: Intense pulsed light (ipl) is a quick and effective way to fade unwanted skin pigment with little downtime. Permanent removal of unwanted skin pigment is much more difficult without permanently affecting the rest of your skin's natural skin color. Ipl followed by good skin care, sun protection and use of hydroquinone can extend the results of treatment but periodic touch-ups will be necessary. ...Read more

Depends on spots: What we term "age spots" include seborrheic keratoses (thick brown bump) and lentigoes (flat brown patch). Both are hereditary and we tend to develop more with time. They can be treated with liquid nitrogen (freezing), lasers, ipl, chemical peels, etc. Treatment choice largely depends on the number of spot and how thick they are. If they are flat sun spots, one can start with a bleaching cream. ...Read more

It depends: It is best to try a test spot to see if it'll work for you. Results are variable, sometimes good, sometimes not so much. If you do get improvement, overexposure to the sun once is often enough to bring them back. Other types of treatment may work better, so see a qualified profession in your area for an opinion. ...Read more
