How Do Age Spots Occur?
Age spots are caused by overactive cells in our skin. The appearance of these spots, as well as melasma and sun damage on your face, is in equal parts due to melanin clumping and ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Though we know the cause of these spots, predicting when or where they will show up is impossible. Some spots can take a long time to develop, while others can appear seemingly overnight. Their unpredictable nature means that we can’t control their onset. However, with a bit of help from our team, you can get rid of these spots after they’ve appeared.
What Are the Signs?
You can identify age spots by their color and shape. These spots are typically flat, oval in shape, and are usually darker than your skin tone. They generally appear on areas of your body that have been exposed the most to the sun, such as the backs of your hands, tops of your feet, the face, and shoulders. They can range in size, from small freckle dots to being about half an inch in diameter. Age spots often group together, making them more noticeable.
