January 18, 2017Have you looked in the mirror to find that your skin has patches of dark splotches? Don’t worry they’re not cancerous but they are an early sign of sun damage. Commonly described as dark brown spots on the skin, these pigmented areas can actually be red or black as well as light brown. They can appear on any part of the body including the face, hands, and neck, so essentially, anywhere exposed to sunlight. Brown dots on the skin are also often referred to as age spots, sun spots, freckles and liver spots (though it is a misconception that these spots have anything do with your liver). While hyperpigmentation is the formal term for this skin condition.
