Age Spots >

Age spots, also called sun spots, are dark patches or spots on the skin that appear due to the natural ageing process.

Age spots are often flat and brown/tan in colour. They often appear on areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands and neck. Age spots develop over time as a result of exposure to the sun. All skin types can be affected by sun spots. Although they can appear at any age, normally those over the age of 50 will start to see age spots.

Age spots develop due to an excess production of melanin (the natural pigment that gives skin it’s colour). Ultraviolet rays from the sun can trigger the body to generate melanin and over time, age spots appear due to the build-up.

Age Spot Symptoms >

  • Brown, tan, or black patches of skin that may get darker after spending time in the sun.
  • Discolored areas of different sizes, from the size of a tiny freckle up to an inch in diameter.
  • Flat patches that appear on their own or clustered in a group.
  • Dark spots on the skin with sharply defined edges or borders.

Age Spot Causes >

Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light speeds up the production of melanin, a natural pigment that gives skin its colour. They can appear on:

  • Face
  • Back of your hands
  • Shoulders
  • Upper back
  • Forearms
