WHAT ARE AGE SPOTS?
Age spots are flat brown, gray, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur in sun-exposed areas. Age spots are also called liver spots, senile lentigo, solar lentigines, or sunspots.
WHAT CAUSES AGE SPOTS?
Age spots are the result of excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. Doctors don’t always know why age spots develop. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes. You’re most likely to develop age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including:
- your face
- the back of your hands
- your shoulders
- your upper back
- your forearms
WHO IS AT RISK FOR AGE SPOTS?
People of any age, sex, or race can develop age spots. However, age spots are more common in people with certain risk factors. These include
- being older than 40 years old
- having fair skin
- having a history of frequent sun exposure
- having a history of frequent tanning bed use
- your forearms
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF AGE SPOTS?
Age spots range from light brown to black in color. The spots have the same texture as the rest of your skin and usually appear on sun-exposed areas. They do not cause any pain.
HOW ARE SPOTS DIAGNOSED?
Your healthcare provider will usually diagnose age spots by looking at your skin. If they’re worried that a dark area isn’t an age spot, they may perform a biopsy. They will remove a small piece of skin and check it for cancer or other abnormalities.

IPL (INTENSE PULSED LIGHT)
Similar to laser therapy, but gentler and more versatile, IPL photo facial can resolve many skin blemishes without discomfort or downtime. The procedure works by applying broad-spectrum light, in short pulses. Various filters and other adjustments are used to customize the intensity and wavelengths of light, according to your specific needs. IPL can effectively target skin pigment, improving brown spots, uneven coloring, and more. It is also exceptional for the treatment of vascular lesions, such as red marks and general facial redness.

Extremely versatile and predictable, chemical peeling may be used to improve, rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, and many other types of skin blemishes. A moderate to deep peel can achieve rapid resurfacing without laser treatment, while mild peels can gently rejuvenate skin with no downtime. The depth of the peel is determined by the potency of active ingredients as well as the length of time it remains on the skin. Chemical peels generally contain some type of acid, which stimulates rapid cellular turnover. They also include therapeutic ingredients, designed to target various skin conditions. Some peels are specifically formulated to improve the complexion and fight pigmentation problems. Click here to learn more about Chemical Peels.
