You may consider seeing a dermatologist to treat various skin conditions such as acne or skin cancer. From routine examinations to complex cosmetic procedures, the dermatologist office of Charles L. G. Halasz, M.D. is equipped to handle all of your dermatologic needs. For example, many of our patients visit us for our expertise in aesthetic procedures such as freckle removal in Forest Hill.
Also known as sun spots, solar lentigines, liver spots, or freckles, age spots occur in response to cumulative sun exposure. However, they get the name “age spots” because they usually start becoming more visible with age (commonly in the 40′s). Not to be confused with ephelides (the tan freckles that appear in the summer and disappear by winter), age spots are permanent dark areas that do not fade over time. While they are not a health concern, some forms of skin cancer look like age spots when they first appear so it’s important to monitor any new spots. However, you may find these spots to be unaesthetic and may desire freckle removal in Forest Hills. If so, Dr. Kleinberg would be happy to assist you in the removal of brown spots and freckles. Brown spots include melasma, hyperpigmentation, or darkening freckles. Dr. Kleinberg can treat these with topical peels, bleaching creams, or remove and biopsy them if necessary. Freckles can be removed with topical chemical peels or by liquid nitrogen. In some cases, Dr. Kleinberg will advise surgical removal and biopsy.
