“Age spots”, or more accurately, sun spots, are caused by sun damage. These dark spots and freckles are the result of your skin trying to respond to a level of sun exposure that it cannot handle.
It is important that when you see one of these lesions appear that you do not make the assumption that it is harmless. You should have these checked to make sure they are benign. Once we have established that they are harmless, they can be effectively treated with a laser.
Since age spots are actually sun spots caused by the sun, the key to prevention of new spots is to avoid the sun and to protect yourself from the sun by using sun screen. A common source of sun exposure is actually driving your car. Your car windows filter out all of the sun’s UVA light and none of the UVB. UVA light is what causes sunburn, but UVB is what causes sun damage and aging skin. You can have a UVB light filtering screen added to your car windows to prevent all this skin damage.

I've been a patient of Dr. Kushner for years now, but I just visited the Farmingdale office for the first time. I had an amazing experience: the office is clean, crisp, and brightly lit. The office staff are friendly and helpful. My wait was negligible and as always, Dr. Kushner addressed my issue in a professional and efficient manner. Highly recommend
I love the accommodations and the heart felt care this office provides there patients. I have a very hectic work and mom schedule and they have always been able to work around my schedule. (Especially weekend office hours) On my most stressfull days with my illness they have always attended with kindness and concern for my care. Pharmacies have always been called the minute you are done with your office visit. Which shows me a prompt and responsible treatment they provide to there patients.
Dr Kushner has always been kind, dedicated and a fantastic doctor. I wouldn’t go anywhere else I took my husband who is in a wheelchair and cannot walk for a small procedure. Dr Kushner was patient and total professional with him Highly recommend Dr Kushner
The lady at the front desk, as well at the PA/MA were so great! I was very pleased with the PA, she was so nice, very honest and professional, specially in this time and date we need more medical professionals like her. I love your practice so much that I brought my daughter there, and made an appointment for my mother too who lives in Queens. Keep up the good work!
Love Doctor Kushner and her staff. I am a new patient and I was very pleased with my visit with her. Very patient, Dr Kushner took her time with me, I did not feel rushed. I love her pleasantness. Her staff is very pleasant and responsive to any questions you may have. Office is clean
