Age Spots

Age spots, also known as liver spots, sun spots, or lentigos, are flat, oval patches of pigmented skin. UVA sunlight stimulates the pigment cells called melanocytes which manufacture this pigment called, melanin. This is not only responsible for a tan but also for unwanted dark patches.

The most common colour is brown, but they can also be red or almost black. These usually occur in adults over 40, but younger people can also get them if they spend a lot of time in the sun. Age spots are completely harmless.

Age Spots are caused by skin ageing, sun damage, sun beds, hormones and genetics. Clients are recommended to book a consultation before considering any treatment. Age spots will fade in the winter and become darker in the summer. There are various treatments that can be carried out to treat them.
