Best Dermatologist For Brown Spot In Fort Lauderdale
What are Brown Spots?
Brown spots, also called age spots or sun spots, are tan or black-brown colored spots that vary in size. These spots typically appear on the skin in areas frequently exposed to the sun such as the face, arms, neck, and shoulders.
Brown Spot Causes
Frequent sun exposure or tanning beds are the primary cause of brown spots, and they may appear on the skin of a person at any age. In response to ultraviolet rays, the lesion appears when melanin builds up in excess in a localized area. People with lighter skin tones, as are those who tend to sunburn quickly, are more susceptible to brown spots.

While primarily treated for cosmetic purposes, we understand that some of our patients have the concern of aging gracefully.
