What Are Age Spots or Hyperpigmentation?
Age spots or sun spots vary from light tan to dark brown, forming in locations prone to increased sun exposure. The medical term for age spots is solar lentigo. Our skin has pigment factories called melanocytes, and brown spots form when the sun causes these skin factories to overproduce melanin, a process called hyperpigmentation.
