Can only guess...: ...without an image. Understanding your underlying medical problems, exposures, risks would be helpful as well. Would ask that you allow a physician to examine your "spots" (whether in the office or via telemedicine), and go from there. Also, I see you have a history of shingles, which can recur. ...Read more

How does co2 laser resurfacing get rid of wrinkles and dark spots? I understand that the co2 laser damages the skin and forces it to heal itself. But I don't understand exactly how that gets rid of wrinkles and spots..

How does co2 laser resurfacing get rid of wrinkles and dark spots? I understand that the co2 laser damages the skin and forces it to heal itself. But I don't understand exactly how that gets rid of wrinkles and spots..

This: This is a good question. Total fx laser resurfacing (co2 laser) vaporizes the soft tissues of the face to eliminate/reduce sun spots, decrease and remove lines and wrinkles as well as reducing pore size. This is through the production of a controlled injury to the papillary dermis (upper dermis), after which replacement of damaged tissues with new healthy, compact collagen takes place. One also sees a more homogenous complexion of the skin tone (color) and the reduction of telangiectasias (small red capillaries) due to this injury and tissue replacement. Optimal results are seen over a 90 – 120 day timeline.

Be healthy and be well,

Black tiny spot on my small toenail. I cut the nail portion off and dark spot came off with the nail. But left a pinkish wound on the skin. Wat is it?

Open vs closed sore: Somehow the skin was injured. It bled and that is why the nail had a dark spot. It was just blood. If the pink spot is still draining, you have a small ulcer that needs topical antibiotic and band aid. If there is no drainage, it is new skin and healing. ...Read more

What could cause dark spots on the liver during a cat scan?

What could cause dark spots on the liver during a cat scan?

Tissue density: Basically speaking, the darker the area the lower the density. Air would be the darkest, water less and bone the lightest. In a non contrast CT, bile filled areas such as the ducts gall bladder or cysts may be the darkest. This will change if an IV contrast is added during the examination.
