Skin Discoloration

The causes of skin discoloration can be as varied as its appearances. Some areas of color change are harmless patches present from birth, while others can be the result of environmental factors, infections, sun exposure, or internal disease processes. Ideally a cause of skin discoloration can be determined by a dermatologist, and the appropriate treatment will be initiated; but occasionally, after all harmful processes are excluded, the only treatment option available is cosmetic improvement of the area. A variety of topicals and laser treatments are available, and your unique symptoms can be evaluated by our medical dermatology team or our cosmetic consultants to advise the best regimen for your condition.
