What Are Age Spots?

If you've spent a lot of time in the sun, your skin has likely accumulated a few dark patches known as age spots.

Age Spots FAQ

What causes age spots?
Age spots are caused by an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. This overproduction is often triggered by prolonged and repeated exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning beds. Aging also contributes to the development of age spots as the skin's ability to regenerate and repair itself diminishes over time.

Are age spots harmful?
Age spots are generally harmless and do not pose any health risks. However, they can sometimes be mistaken for other skin conditions, such as melanoma, a type of skin cancer. It is important to have our team at About Face & Body Medical Spa evaluate any new or changing spots to rule out serious conditions.

How can I prevent age spots?
The best way to prevent age spots is to protect your skin from UV exposure. This includes wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and avoiding tanning beds. Additionally, using skinc are products with antioxidants and regularly moisturizing the skin can help maintain its health and resilience.
