A solar lentigo, which is the medical term for a sun or liver spot, is a condition commonly seen in both primary care and dermatologist’s offices. Experienced practitioners are able to make this diagnosis with their eyes or with the use of a magnifier. If you are interested in having a sun spot removed, you will need to make an appointment with our doctor to make sure that it is a benign lesion, which can be treated with our laser. If we think that your spot is not a lentigo, but something that warrants a biopsy, we will be happy to refer you to a dermatologist.
