What are Age Spots?

Age spots, also commonly known as liver spots, range in size and in color from light brown to black and appear on the skin where it is frequently exposed to the sun. Despite their name, age spots are not caused by age or liver dysfunction, except that the longer you live, the more likely they are to occur.

What do Age Spots look like?

Age spots appear most often where the skin is repeatedly exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, neck, exposed scalp, and arms. Age spots can mimic cancerous growth but in nearly all cases, they are harmless beyond any self-conscious reaction to their appearance.

What causes Age Spots ?

Age spots are more likely to appear on people whose lifestyle exposes them to the sun. Over time, the skin loses its ability to regenerate after sun exposure and the spots appear. The best way to avoid age spots is to keep the skin from becoming overexposed to the sun by covering it with clothing or using a sunscreen with an appropriate SPF.

What can treat Age Spots?

There is no medical need to treat age spots.
