Age Spots

What are Age Spots?

Age spots are usually harmless and have a flat brown,  gray, or black surface on the skin, also called liver spots or sun spots, any changes to the age spots such as an increase in size, sensitivity, itching, bleeding or change in colour, then they should be checked by a doctor as they might be a more serious skin condition.

What causes Age Spots?

They are caused by an accumulation of a yellow pigment called lipofuscin, this happens in the connective tissues of the body. Skin ageing, sun exposure, or use of sun-beds, are the general causes. You will find them on areas of the skin that have been over exposed to the sun including:

  • face
  • the back of your hands
  • shoulders
  • forearms
