The brown spots that appear on the skin as you get older are signs of sun exposure or other changes to the skin. Even with the diligent use of sunscreen and skin protection, pigmented spots caused by sun exposure or hormonal changes can appear that detract from an even skin tone. These brown skin lesions are called sun or age spots, with some resembling freckles while others may be larger patches. If you have sun or brown spots that you want removed, Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, in NYC has non-surgical treatments that can fade those darker skin patches away.

The skin contains pigmented cells. This is what causes skin to become darker when exposed to the sun. In some cases, these pigmented cells collect in one area. Genetic freckles are an example, but other spots occur from changes as you get older. Sun exposure can result in small areas of damaged cells or sun spots. Hormonal changes or certain medications can result in patches of pigmented skin. These discolorations are often unwanted, creating an uneven skin tone that can make you look older or less attractive. Treatments can eliminate these darker skin cells, restoring even-toned skin that looks younger and more attractive.

Options for Removing Skin Discolorations

If you have sun or brown spots appearing on your facial skin, there are a few options to target these darker skin cells. Dr. Rosenberg offers a few different treatments that can be beneficial in fading or removing pigmented skin cells. Some skin rejuvenation procedures that can improve the tone and texture of the skin include laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. Laser treatments can target specific spots and even destroy the pigmented cells. Darker brown spots and patches are usually best treated with laser therapy. Chemical peels work to improve overall skin tone and can fade discolorations.

If you have sun, age or brown spots that you want to fade or remove, contact the office of Dr. Rosenberg to schedule a consultation. We have offices in NYC and Upper East Side for your convenience.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
