30 Nov What are Sunspots? How Can I Prevent Them?
Sunspots, also known as age spots, are a form of hyperpigmentation that can develop from prolonged exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Sunspots can range from tan to dark brown and are more likely to occur on those with light skin and those who have a history of sunburns and intense sun exposure. Typically sunspots are oval and flat, range in size, and can appear on a person’s hands, arms, shoulders, face, as well as any other part of the body that has been exposed to UV rays for an extended period of time. While sunspots are generally harmless, they can have a cosmetic impact on your appearance, especially when they pop up on your face. While laser skin resurfacing is a popular treatment option, it would be a person’s best interest to try their best to prevent sunspots from occurring.
