Customer Question
What can I use...

What can I use to lighten entire body I am a senior and I want my skin dark spots to be removed

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

I have been usiing natural products but it takes so long and the dark comes back too soon

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I dont think so, I have had rash from codiene medication when I fell and fractured my back so i stopped taking any codiene meds and start using over counter only and rash went away

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Its impossible to eliminate age spots or liver spots completely. Most effective medical treatments are laser therapy or prescription hydroquinone cream. Neither are available without seeing a dermnatogist of course

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
