Age Spots

At Goodman Dermatology and Mohs Surgery in Peoria, AZ, our team can provide you with the high-quality support you need to manage a variety of skin problems. For example, Dr. Matt Goodman can manage age spots to ensure that your skin is strong and healthy. Here’s what you need to know about our diagnostic and treatment process for these common and frustrating skin issues.

Diagnosis Options

Your liver spot management starts with a diagnosis, including a visual inspection. We’ll take an in-depth look at your skin, identify where your spots occur, and find ways to manage them. This process helps us figure out if liver spots are the real culprit or if there are other concerns. 

Then, we can perform a biopsy (removing a small portion of the affected skin) to make sure that it’s not anything else. We only do this if we’re concerned about how they look and think there’s a risk you might have skin cancer. 

Potential Treatment Options 

Our team at Goodman Dermatology and Mohs Surgery in Peoria, AZ, headed by Dr. Goodman, can provide you with various treatments for age spots. For example, there are various bleaching creams, retinoids, and other medications that may help. Laser therapy may also be a smart option.

This treatment uses pulsed light to destroy melanin cells that cause liver spots and make your skin clearer. There are also therapy options like freezing, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels that can help clear the skin successfully and minimize appearance problems.

When To Contact Us 

While these spots aren’t necessarily too destructive to your health, they can be unpleasant to look at and can even affect your emotional health. For example, these spots can cause you to view yourself negatively, such as feeling like you’re old (even though many younger people have these spots).

If you find that your age spots are spreading rampantly and you aren’t sure what to do about it, please make sure that you reach out to us to learn more. We’ll provide the high-quality support you need to get through your treatment and ensure that you’re aware of your treatment options here.
