The truth about age spots

Age spots, sometimes called liver spots, are blemishes that appear on your skin and are typically seen as a normal part of aging.

Caused by your skin's exposure to ultraviolet radiation over time, age spots can range in color from red to black, but most age spots are a light brown or tan color.

Are Age Spots Dangerous? 

Age spots can be dangerous if they mask skin cancer or melanomas, yet in most cases age spots are relatively benign.
