Age Spots

Age spots are uniformly colored, well-defined areas of brownish pigment that typically develop on the hands, chest, neck and face. Despite their name, age spots do not appear as a result of age, but rather sun damage over time. They are also known as sun spots or solar lentigines. Using sunscreen regularly and limiting sun exposure are the best and easiest ways to prevent age spots and maintain youthful skin.

Treatments for age spots
• Over-the-counter or prescription-strength bleaching creams containing hydroquinone and retinoids
Anti-aging creams
Chemical peels
Laser treatments
