Freckles &Age Spots
These flat, brown areas are called lentigines. They have nothing to do with the liver - they are caused by the sun and usually appear on the face, hands, back and feet. They are generally harmless. They may look like melanoma and therefore may require evaluation. Commercial "fade" creams will not make lentigines disappear, but effective prescription medications and surgical resurfacing treatments are available. Dr. Rothfeld at NYC Dermatology board certified dermatologist treats many cases every week
