What are Brown Spots?
Brown spots, also known as age spots and liver spots are seen as flat tan, black or brown spots on a specific part of the body. They are usually found on body parts like arms, shoulders, hands and face and vary in size as well. Skin brown spots are common in adults that are older than 50 years of age. However, brown spots can also appear on young people if they are exposed to the sun on a regular basis. When the skin is exposed to the sun, there is increase in the production of melanocytes, cells that increase melanin in a person’s skin, making it look darker.
Those who have this condition sometimes worry that these growths can become cancerous. In reality, brown spots may be harmless and may need brown spot treatment. Understanding the problem and its conditions, Ecobeautica offers brown spot removal.
Understanding brown spots
Before you learn how to get rid of brown spots, you must understand what they look like. Brown spots usually develop in fair complexion people. They are:
Flat in shape
Black, brown or tan in color
Occur in the areas of the skin which have had sun exposure for years
Upper back, shoulders, face, top of feet and back of hand can be affected
The size of the spots may range from freckle size to ½ inches
Causes of brown spots
As mentioned before, the reason for brown spots is from exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Using tanning beds and tanning lamps may also lead to skin brown spots. The upper layer of the skin, known as epidermis has skin color producing pigment known as melanin. The UV rays increase melanin production which creates the tan that protects the deep layers of the skin from the harmful UV light rays. Areas of the skin that have been exposed to prolonged and frequent exposure to sun have clumped melanin on them. This causes the formation of brown spots on the particular area.
