Age/Brown Spots

Boston Common Podiatry, Skin & Wellness provides advanced, innovative laser skincare treatments that get rid of unwanted age and brown spots. As we advance in years, our skin begins to lose its regenerative qualities. Age and brown spots can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • The Natural and Inevitable Aging Process
  • Frequent, Prolonged Sun Exposure
  • UV Light Exposure

What are age spots?

Age spots happen when there is an excess production of melanin (or skin pigment). These small, dark patches on the skin (often called liver spots) tend to cluster and vary in size, often appearing in areas most often exposed to the sun.

Age Spots Most Often Affect:

  • Face
  • Backs of hands
  • Shoulders
  • Upper back
  • Forearms
  • Any other area of the body experiencing prolonged sun damage

Who Is at Risk?

Anyone can develop age spots. It doesn’t matter what race or skin type you are. However, age spots most often affect people who exhibit the following risk factors:

  • 40 years of age and over
  • Fair-skinned
  • Frequent overexposure to the sun
  • Frequent tanning bed use
