Health Tip: Understanding Age Spots
Usually due to sun exposure

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Age spots, sometimes called "liver spots," are brown, flat spots that appear on the skin.

The Cleveland Clinic explains more about age spots and what you can do about them:

  • Age spots typically occur as a result of exposure to the sun.
  • Age spots most commonly occur on the face, arms, hands, feet and back.
  • Age spots normally do not cause harm, but a dermatologist may be able to remove them if they bother you.
  • Wearing sunscreen can help prevent age spots from worsening.
