Brown spots

There are several types of brown spots. Among the most frequent are sunspots, such as solar lentigines (liver spots) or melasma, as well as actinic keratoses, precancerous cells that develop a pigmented appearance. Another common form is seborrheic keratoses—brownish, sometimes beige or whitish patches, which often have a raised, scaly appearance. Lastly, brown spots can sometimes also be skin cancers, such as pigmented basal cell carcinoma or lentigo maligna, or simply moles. This is why it is essential to consult a dermatologist to get the right diagnosis.

Your dermatologist can then present you with the treatment options that will offer the best results according to the type of brown spots that have been diagnosed. For example, sun protection will be essential to treat solar lentigines, actinic keratoses and melasma, but will not change the emergence or appearance of seborrheic keratoses. Intense pulsed light will be an excellent treatment for those with solar lentigines but is contraindicated for those with melasma or actinic keratoses.

Clinique D’s professionals rely on several technologies for treating brown spots and will be able to offer you the best approach as well as specialized medical or aesthetic treatment for each type.
