Condition: Sunspots and age spots

Procedure: Laser Surgery

After many years of sun exposure, Carolyn suffered from sunspots and age spots. Over time, she knew she wanted these removed from her face. Carolyn found burn and plastic surgeon Jeremy Goverman, MD, who performed laser surgery and removed her sunspots.

Laser Surgery is a non-invasive procedure in which a targeted wavelength of light is used to resurface skin. With this procedure, desired results can be provided safely and effectively with minimal recovery time.

Below is information from Carolyn describing her experience with Dr. Goverman and Mass General.

My experience with Dr. Goverman and his wonderful team of associates exceeded my expectations. They took the time to answer all of my concerns prior to the procedure. The process was virtually painless, and the down time was five to seven days.

As you can see after many years of sun exposure, I developed multiple sunspots and age spots known as liver spots. The photos show my/the transformation. My skin tone is much brighter, and the spots are no longer there. I have received numerous compliments from family and friends which validate my opinion of the results.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Dr. Goverman, along with his outstanding staff for their professionalism and dedication in helping me to achieve my amazing results. I would positively recommend laser treatment to anyone contemplating it.
