Brown Spots?

A fan on Facebook asked: “Ok. I’m getting old and getting brownish pigmentation on my chin. Any suggestions?”

A brown spot can be many things so it depends on what it is exactly. There are age spots, sun spots, melasma, lentigines, lentigo and many other names for brown spots. If you believe it’s from the sun then there are several different products with ingredients that can help lighten the spots such as hydroquinone or kojic acid. Different laser treatments can lighten spots however it depends on your skin type. I recommend seeing a dermatologist or a medical esthetician before doing anything to confirm what it is and then move forward in selecting a treatment. Thank you for your question. I hope this gives you some direction.
