Dark spots and patches on the skin occur when hormones or long-term sun exposure affect cells called melanocytes, the ones that make pigment.
Not only are they unsightly, but could be a precurser to skin cancer.
Brown spots are flat, oval areas of increased pigmentation—usually brown, black or gray. These spots occur on skin that has had the most sun exposure over the years, such as the face, chest, back of hands, shoulders and upper back. They range in size from freckle-size to more than a centimeter across and can group together, making them more prominent. They typically develop in people with a fair complexion but can be seen even in those with darker skin. Often brown spots are accompanied by other signs of sun damage, including: Deep wrinkles; dry, rough skin; fine red veins on your cheeks, nose and ears; and thinner, more translucent-looking skin.
