Age Spots – The Best Treatments and Tips

Age Spots

Age Spots are also known as a Liver spot or solar lentigines. It is a small hyperpigmented(darkly coloured) patch of skin that is seen mainly in the skin areas exposed to the sun.

It typically appears on the face, neck, hands and legs in older individuals, above 50 years of age. It is equally seen in males and females but more in cases of sun exposure. 

It is primarily related to sun exposure and the genetic makeup of the person. The UV light in sunlight stimulates the melanocytes(pigment-producing cells) to multiply and form clusters which produce more melanin pigment.

If you are looking for a solution to get rid of your age spots just book an appointment and consult with our specialists.
