Absolutely. Read on to learn why you have so many age spots, if they can be dangerous to your health, and other ways to remove and prevent them.
What Causes Age Spots?
Age spots are caused by years of exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun, and using a tanning bed can also contribute to the development of age spots. The pigment in the upper layer of the skin that gives your skin its normal color is called melanin. When UV light comes in contact with the skin, the rays accelerate the production of melanin, creating a tan on the skin to help protect deeper layers of skin from damage caused by UV rays. Age spots appear on areas of the skin that have had frequent and prolonged sun exposure because the melanin is produced in particularly high concentrations.
So what’s your best defense against age spots? Proper protection from the sun. Anyone can develop them, but you are more likely to get age spots if you have light-colored or fair skin, or if you have a history of frequent or intense sun exposure or sunburns.age spots
