Thank you for your question.

As you know age spots or liver spots are harmless but are a concern for cosmetic reasons. You only need to get checked by a dermatologist when the spots grow quickly or have irregular edges or change dramatically in color. These spots come mostly from exposure to sun and ultraviolet rays and or most often seen in fair skin people in those areas that are mostly exposed to the sun. There are several treatments available including laser treatment, cryotherapy, creams that contain bleach, dermabrasion and chemical peels. If you pick one of these therapies make certain that your dermatologist has extensive experience in the use of that particular therapy. I will recommend the following free website that will help you understand this condition better.
