Sun Spots

Sun spots are also commonly referred to as age spots or liver spots. They can occur anywhere on the body that has been exposed to direct sunlight or ultraviolet rays from a tanning bed. They typically appear as flat spots that vary in size, and they are usually tan, brown, or dark brown in color. Sun spots are most common on the shoulders, backs of hands, chest, face, and neck. They are most common in people who are forty years old or older, but they can appear on people of all ages. While many people dislike sun spots for cosmetic reasons, in most cases they are medically harmless.
