Age spots typically develop as a result of prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. They are usually the product of sun exposure, but tanning beds and other tanning equipment may also contribute to their development. By definition, age spots are not cancerous and present no physical health problems, but they can be a cosmetic concern.
How do Age Spots
However, for cosmetic purposes, the practitioners at Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center are experts in treating age spots.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE AGE SPOTS?
In order to help you determine if you have age spots, please look through the following qualities:
- Age spots primarily appear in areas that are most exposed to the sun, such as the arms, hands, shoulders and face.
- They are usually seen in people with fair skin, although they can occur in patients with any color of skin.
- They are seen as small ovals or circles of increased pigmentation, which simply means they are darker than the rest of the skin.
- They are usually tan, brown or black and can be flat or raised.
- Age spots can be as small as freckles, but they may grow to be as large as half an inch wide.
- Further, they have a tendency to bunch together, increasing their visibility.
