Brown Spots (Lentigo) are also known as sun spots, liver spots or age spots. They are caused by a combination of sun damage and aging.
Prolonged sun exposure can cause the skin cells to produce more melanin. Increased amounts of melanin can result in the formation of brown spots.
Brown Spots may fade with the careful use of sun protection and regular use of anti-aging creams. However, brown spots may be removed more rapidly and effectively with a chemical peel or laser treatment.
To prevent future brown spots wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
