Liver spots

04/07/2004

Question:

I am 49 and just noticed liver spots on my hands. I know there are creams available to bleach them out, but are they safe?

Answer:

Consult a cosmetologist at one of the department stores. There are numerous products available in the cosmetics counters. A dermatologist should also know what works. As far as I know there is nothing available that is permanent.
