Age Spots

Introduction To Age Spots

Age spots, also called liver spots or solar lentigines, are small patches of dark skin. These are mostly found on areas of the body that have been exposed to sun, like the shoulders, hands, face, and arms and vary in size from freckle-sized to half an inch across. More commonly seen on lighter skin, true age spots are harmless to your health but can impact your self-confidence and they can be unsightly. Melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, is produced in the outer layer of skin, or epidermis, in response to UV exposure.

Factors to consider

As we age, our skin loses its ability to regenerate and repair skin, and the cells responsible for pigment, melanocytes can become unevenly distributed. This leads to deposits of melanin in the skin that form age spots. People with light skin and red hair are more likely to develop this condition, as are people who have a history of overexposure to the sun or tanning beds, as well as people who frequently have sunburn.

Genetics can play a part; you are more likely to have or develop age spots if a close member of your family has them. Age spots have the same texture as skin, and though frequently small, can group together and look like prominent clusters.
