Liver Spots

Fortunately, liver spots are not actually associated with liver function. Nevertheless, spots that were once mistaken to be caused by liver or metabolic issues are a source of stress for many people. Most prevalent on the hands, face, arms, shoulders, forehead, décolletage and even the scalp, these brown spots (also known as age spots or sun spots) develop over time and with sun exposure. There is some speculation that hereditary and health factors can play a part in the development of age spots.

The board-certified physicians and advanced practitioners at California Skin Institute can offer several forms of relief for these age spots and sun spots. Treatments include a variety of laser treatments as well certain aesthetic procedures. Once initial evenness in skin tone is achieved, these treatments can offer the ongoing maintenance of smooth, even-toned skin.

Ask your licensed professional which laser treatments and aesthetic procedures may work well in combination to address your individual needs. Amount and frequency of treatments may vary from patient to patient, but most patients find that the amount and frequency of treatments are reasonable to achieve the desired results.
