Can a dermatologist help get rid of dark spots on the face?

Customer Question

Can a dermatologist help get rid of dark spots on the face? I never had them before and now they;re popping up on the left side.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?
Customer: Probably the last 6 months. I only had two but now I have several and I just noticed a couple on the right side as well. I have olive skin and was never a sun worshiper growing up. I'm 64 years old.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: not really. high blood pressure and cholesterol controlled by meds. That's about it.
