Age Spots Removal
Age spots are flat, tan, brown, or black flat spots that are darker than the surrounding skin. Age spots, which are called lentigines, differ from another type of light tan freckles, called ephelides, that disappear or fade after seasonal sun exposure.
Age spots are permanent freckles that generally tend to arise after around age 40 and occur most frequently on areas that receive the most sun exposure. Age spots are simply a concentrated region of your skin’s natural pigment, and it is not essential to treat or remove them. However, although age spots are harmless, certain forms of skin cancer can start out resembling them. Any new or questionable spot, especially any freckle that changes appearance, grows, or causes discomfort, should be examined by a dermatologist.
