Eliminate Brown Spots For Good

Dr. Oscar Hevia


Internationally renowned Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Oscar Hevia offers his expert opinion.


Brown spots are one of my favorite topics. They can be flat, rough or thick; they can have texture; they can be very light, and they can also be very dark. There’s a whole spectrum of treatments to get rid of them:


If you have melasma (large brown patches on the face), you are always going to do best with a proper bleaching or fading skin regimen.


If you have isolated, very clear, moderate to dark brown spots, you are going to do well selectively treating these spots with a laser.


In some cases, brown spots have to be what we call ‘shaved’ off, which means that we basically put a little anesthetic, and literally take the top off. It heals very rapidly.
