Brown Spots and Discoloration

Brown spots — also known as “age spots” and “liver spots” — are non-cancerous spots appearing on areas of the body primarily exposed to ultraviolet light such as the face, hands, shoulders and arms.

What is it?

Dark spots and discoloration are common aspects of the skin's natural aging process. They are flat, pigmented, dark patches that differ in size and appear on the face, hands, shoulders, arms and legs. These spots appear on skin areas exposed to ultraviolet light, such as the sun, tanning beds or sun lamps. 


These discolorations can affect individuals of all skin types but are most prevalent in adults (usually over 50 years old) with fair skin. Unlike freckles, these dark spots don't fade with time. They are benign and don't require medical attention; however, if you're not fond of how they look, our board-certified dermatologists and skin specialists can devise a personalized treatment plan to make your skin even-toned and glowing. Reach out to us for a consultation. We're here to assist you.


How is it treated?

At Dermatology & Skin Surgery Center, you can trust that our highly trained medical professionals can successfully treat your brown spots and manage irregular skin tones. Depending on the severity and location of your brown spots, we will identify the best course of treatment, which often includes laser resurfacing, a chemical peel or microneedling.  Our board-certified dermatologists serve both Michigan and Indiana, with offices in Adrian, Battle Creek, Dowagiac, Hillsdale, Jackson, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Sturgis, Michigan, and Angola, Elkhart, Goshen and Plymouth, Indiana.
