Areas of darker pigmentation on your skin are a normal thing. There can be a lot of different types, but they most commonly look like moles, sun damage, birth marks, or brown (age) spots. Often, they are harmless and only require some cosmetic treatments if you’re bothered by their appearance.
What Causes Age Spots?
Age spots can either be random or caused by outside factors. In many cases, age spots are simply the result of uneven melanin distribution in the skin. In other cases, age spots can be caused by sun damage over time. It’s important to note that age spots are not always cancerous, but you should make sure to have them regularly checked by a physician.
