laser

Avatar f tn Hi, Infrared technology through LASER technology has been used to treat skin conditions including age spots. Age spots however, are diagnosed based on a complete physical examination. How old are you? Age spots or liver spots as the name implies present as one ages.Thus,when one is younger the use of sunscreen on the face and other sun exposed parts of the body may be beneficial.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your comments about the laser and brown spots in my cheeks, but i have a question now, i've had the laser 3 times and my spots are getting darker is this normal?. after the procedure ( make for a certified doctor) my skin gets red and then dark for some days ( is like burned skin), and after 4 or 5 days this burned skin is gone but the brown spots still there but darkers. should i stop the laser treatment or keep going for more?. Thank you.
Avatar f tn This morning, I had quite a few age spots removed from my face and hands via Q-switched Yag Laser. The spots were quite red when done, but now the redness is fading and some of the spots on my hand seem to be darker than they were before. Is this typical for this type of treatment? I did quite a bit of research prior to having the procedure done and was told this was one of the most effective treatments to eliminate age spots.

Avatar n tn i have loads of spots under my skin i cant wash it properly though because spot creams make my skin so dry it actually hurts, i've also tried oilatum and similar things but they make the spots worse my skin is also really blemishy, thank you.
Avatar m tn I have attached a picture of the spots i have got. I keep on getting this new spots every day. What is this.
Avatar n tn As you explain about these white spots are flat on skin and spreading slowly it seems that this is skin condition vitiligo. white spots on skin which feel burning while exposed to the sun is a common symptom of skin condition vitiligo (source of info: http://www.antivitiligo.com/vitiligo/ ). I recommend you not use tanning beds to treat these spots. Because the intensity of uv radiation in these beds is 3 to 8 time than the sunlight. There is a great risk for skin cancer by harmful rays of UV.
Avatar n tn They all work to reduce the appearance not only of large pores, but also improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, age spots, scars, discolorations and other imperfections. You should discuss these options with your dermatologist as well as a proper evaluation of your pores is also important.

Avatar n tn The only way to prevent age spots is to use liberal amounts of sunscreen before the age of forty, avoid the sun, and wear protective clothing. The newest treatment for age spots is an alpha hydroxy acid gel or beta hydroxy acid gel. Retin-A cream, alpha hydroxyacid peels, and liquid nitrogen therapy are other options. If still the symptoms do not improve then pls get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist as without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough. I hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Is there a product on the market that can be purchased so that the white spots will even out with the rest of my skin? I also have a lot of age spots (brown spots) on my legs and arms; which I believe is also from the sun and tanning beds. Is there also a product for this available on the market?

Avatar n tn Hormones, environment and genetics as well as age may play a role. Are you male or female? How old are you? Age spots, melasma in pregnancy, hyperpigmentations due to reactions to direct heat or sun exposure may cause these. You may have this assesed by your dermatologist. An initial consult will be able to help. Some forms of topical medications may only further irritate the skin. Laser therapy may be considered if indicated.

Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis,but it can be solar keratosis(small rough or scaly areas of skin due to damage from sun exposure), solar lentigo, seborrheis keratosis(small lumps due to a thickening of an area of the top skin layer),moles or freckles. Use liberal amounts of sunscreen before the age of forty, avoid the sun, and wear protective clothing. The newest treatment for age spots is an alpha hydroxy acid gel or beta hydroxy acid gel.
Avatar n tn Hi Recently I have been waking up with more and more tiny smooth red spots on my cheeks by my nose and some on my forehead. They are smooth and are not acne but don't itch or anything either. Could it be from my face wash or switching birth controls? Or maybe from dry winter skin? Help it seems to get worse every day!
Avatar f tn I just turned 49 this year and I've noticed 2 light brown spots on my right hand that weren't there before. Are these age spots? Can anything be used or done to get rid of them? They're light and small but they bother me. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn As far as I remember I have had red spots on my skin. Most of them are very tiny while others are bigger. Three weeks ago I discovered an infection of insects (pubic lice or crabs) all over my body. I followed all the steps prescribed by the doctor, hair shaving among them. Since then, I have been checking my skin everyday and I have noticed that the number of red spots is increasing (on trunk especially).
Avatar n tn Hi, This seems to be cherry angiomas, from the description that you give, though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions. Cherry angiomas are benign , fairly common skin growths that vary in size. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but usually develop on the trunk. They are most common after age 40. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn i have had spots on my skin from since a tender age and tried every cream possible i am starting to consider laser NOW i need to find at least on more cream i could try to get rid of these spots.
Avatar n tn If anyone else suffers from strange skin conditions like tiny black specks coming from the skin pores, white granules coming from skin, strange fibers protruding from skin, or other conditions such as Lyme disease, or invisible skin parasites, they, also should get in touch with us. if it IS the condition we have been working on, there is a cheap and very successful cure for it. http://www.randburkey.netfirms.
Avatar f tn (There might be some pink coloring if I had been in the sun a bit longer but that fades overnight). I do have some age spots and my dermatopathologist biopsied and burned off a spot in my hairline in front of my ear a few months ago but it was bright red and the pre-cancerous sun spot. He also removed a keratin bump from my scalp but only because I asked (my hairbrush kept hitting it). It was biopsied and confirmed to be 'nothing'. I am very fair skinned, grew up in the south and am 62.
Avatar m tn Hello Doctor Rockoff, I have been receiving laser hair treatments in the pubic area for the last 6 weeks. I notice a small black spot exactly 2mm in size near the crease near my groin. This is the same area that is being treated by the laser. The spot is symetrical and small but I'm worried because it's black rather than the normal mole color. Can the laser cause something like this or could it be a small melanoma. I'm a female age 39 with no health conditions.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am an black female with a medium brown skin-tone. I began waxing and shaving my bikini area a few years ago and have since had numerous issues with hyperpigmentation and ingrown hairs. I understand this condition to be psuedofolliculitis pubis, correct? Many of the ingrown hairs seem to work themselves out while some remain deeply embedded in the skin. For those hairs, I use a tweezer to try to get the hair out which produces what I think is scarring.
Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old white male with no other medical problems. Could this be skin cancer? or is it due to the sensitive skin from the stretch marks?
Avatar n tn I am only 22 years old and the doctor tells me that they are age spots. I recently had laser hair removal and it is only since then that these spots have appeared. They are mainly on my stomach and legs and they also dissappear and reappear.
Avatar m tn Many of these products advertise that they are for removing age spots. Will these work for me? Or does anyone have a good home remedy type solution to this? Thoughts on any products you have used would be greatly appreciated!
