"Age Spots" are well-defined, uniformly colored areas of brown or grayish pigment that generally show up on the hands, face, neck and chest. Despite the name, these spots are not caused by age but rather they are caused from sun damage. Although harmless, they can be treated with certain herbs and creams that may assist in gently fading their appearance. As always, it is wise to use a full spectrum SPF when planning to be in the sun for prolonged periods of time as this may help to prevent sun damage.
