Brown Spot Treatment | Molluscum Treatment Carrollton TX

Wart & Molluscum Destruction

Warts and Molluscum are skin growths caused by viruses. These lesions can affect individuals of any age, but some types are more commonly found in children and some more often found in adults. Many types of warts, especially those usually found on children, have the potential to disappear on their own.

Warts can be treated with medications or otherwise removed. They can be treated with liquid nitrogen, candida immunotherapy or shave removal with electrodessication and curettage.

Brown Spot Treatment

Also known as age or liver spots, they are flat painless areas, light brown to black in color. Brown spots tend to appear on the parts of the body that are most likely to be uncovered and unprotected from the sun, such as the face, hands, arms, shoulders and feet. They vary in size, but are larger than freckles. Brown spots are very common in people over the age of 40.

While brown spots may not be medically dangerous, many people find them cosmetically unappealing. There are numerous treatments available to improve them and help patients achieve clear, blemish-free skin once again.

Many brown spots on the hands and face can be successfully treated with liquid nitrogen, otherwise known as cryotherapy. Skin bleaching is another form of treatment for brown spots. Containing hydroquinone, this medication is topically applied to the spots on the skin to lighten them. Chemical peels or photofacials or laser skin resurfacing are minimally invasive options that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of skin irregularities such as brown spots.
