I would like a consultation for liver spots
Dear Dr. Reichel:
I am 67 years old, and have two liver spots on my face and would like them removed. Do you have "free" consultations? Thanks J.W.
Liver spots are a common name for any sort of pigmented lesion on the skin that develops with aging. They are usually “sun freckles”, or solar lentigines. However, someone might also be referring to seborrheic keratoses when they use the words “liver spots”. I like to call seborrheic keratoses “spots of much wisdom”. Often times, we think of Liver spots as being located on the hands. However, I am sure that some folks think of Liver Spots as any brown spot on the body that has come with age, and is not a mole.
For treatment, the easiest and fastest is still use of liquid nitrogen, or freezing. When a patient has only a few brown spots, this is often my treatment of choice. However, there are several lasers here at PDCC that we can use to remove brown spots. And, of course, I am a huge proponent of Retin-A for anti-aging. Our cosmetic consultations are $80, however if you decide to have treatment the same day we can credit the $80 toward that treatment. Please call our office at your earliest convenience to schedule at appointment, 206-859-05777, either Melissa or Sara can set that up for you. I look forward to working with you.
Thank you, Dr. Jennifer Reichel of Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Seattle
