- Age spots are very common in adults over 50, but younger people can get them if they spend time in the sun.
- Age spots can look like cancerous growths. Real age spots don’t need treatment, but they’re a sign that your skin has been exposed to lots of sunlight and your skin’s attempt to protect itself from sun damage. For aesthetic reasons, they can be lightened or removed.
- You can help prevent age spots by using sunscreen regularly and avoiding the sun.

Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light speeds up the production of melanin, a natural pigment that gives skin its color. Age spots appear on skin that has been exposed to the sun for years when melanin clumps or is produced in high concentrations.Age spots (liver spots) Treatment warangal
- The use of tanning lamps and commercial beds can also cause age spots.
You are more likely to develop age spots if you:
- Have fair skin
- Have a history of frequent or intense sun exposure or sunburn
- Follow these tips to prevent age spots and new spots after treatment, and to limit sun exposure:
- Avoid the sun between 10am. and 2 p.m. Since the sun’s rays are most intense during this time, try planning outdoor activities at other times of the day.
- Use sunscreen. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 15 to 30 minutes before going outdoors. Apply the sunscreen generously and reapply it every two hours – or more often if you swim or sweat.
- To protect yourself from the sun, wear tight-woven clothing that covers your arms and legs and a wide-brimmed hat that offers more protection than a baseball cap or golf visor.
- Wear clothing designed to protect you from the sun. Look for clothing with a UV Protection Factor (UPF) of 40 to 50 for the best protection.Age spots (liver spots) Treatment warangal
