What Are The Alternatives To The Procedure?
Pigmented lesions and age spots are cosmetic problems that do not require treatment for medical reasons. Topical therapies include the use of tretinoin (Retin-A), topical vitamin-C or fade creams. These topical therapies are an option, but the results are unpredictable and the response time is 6 months or more for improvement. Make-up is also an option. Cryotherapy can improve pigmented lesions, but often leaves white unpigmented areas or small scars.
