Aging skin can often be marked by brown spots, otherwise know as pigmented lesions or age spots. Dermatologists may also refer to these unsightly blemishes on the skin as lentigo or solar lentigo. They can also be called liver spots, but have nothing to do with the liver or liver function. Pigmented Lesions and brown spots are most frequently seen in adults over thirty, and they occur most commonly on sun exposed skin, face, back of hands, arms, chest and lower legs.
Brown spots are caused by aging and years of overexposure to the sun overexposure can lead to the develop of these unsightly brown spots on the skin. Heredity also plays a role in fair skinned individuals who are more prone to developing age spots. Cumulative exposure to the harmful rays of the sun is the cause of age spots rather than age itself. Brown spots are not related to skin cancer and are harmless. Many people chose to have brown spots removed for cosmetic appearances, however it is not medically necessary.
