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. ■
