AGE SPOT REMOVAL TORONTO
Age spots, also called “liver spots” or “solar lentigo,” are usually the undesirable result of sun exposure and the skin’s natural aging process. They appear as brown spots, or harmless patches of uneven skin tone and pigmentation, and result when excess melanin (skin pigment) in the skin cells accumulates.
The main two factors contributing to age spots include sun exposure and age.e noticeable.
Age spots are not just restricted to the facial area but are commonly found on the shoulders, upper back, neck, décolletage, backs of the hands or any areas of skin that have had the most sun exposure over the years.
Age spots occur in people of all skin types, but they tend to be more numerous in fair-skinned individuals. Age spots can be round, oval or irregular in shape. Their colour varies from tan to dark brown or black, and their size can range from freckle-sized to several millimetres or centimetres in diameter, sometimes grouping together and making them more noticeable.
Causes of Age Spots
Age spots are categorized as hyperpigmentation or overactive pigment cells and are caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, which accelerates the production of melanin. On areas of skin that have had many years of frequent and prolonged sun exposure, age spots appear when melanin becomes “clumped” or is produced in high concentrations.
The use of commercial tanning lamps and tanning beds can also contribute to the development of age spots.
