AGE SPOTS

Age Spots Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai


Age spots, or liver spots, are marks on the surface of the skin that are brown, black, or even grey in colour, and range from freckle-sized to larger than a centimetre across. The medical term is ‘solar lentigines’. As this implies, age spots are usually caused by sun exposure.

Causes of Age Spots


Although age spots are most common in people over 40, individuals who have had a lot of sun exposure may develop age spots at a younger age. They are more common in people who freckle and who burn easily. It is important to know that if you’ve developed age spots as a result of over-exposure to the sun, you have a higher risk of developing skin cancer.

What You Can Do

Prevention is better than cure, so avoid too much time in the sun and always use a good, high-SPF sunblock. Age spots may have the same appearance as more serious skin lesions (such as moles or even skin cancer). Therefore it is important that you consult a dermatologist.

What We Can Do For You

An age spot is simply an area of increased pigmentation in the skin, and is usually flat and oval shaped. More serious marks might be raised, irregularly shaped, and multi-coloured. Our dermatologist might perform a biopsy of an age spot to rule out cancer.
