Sun Spots, Age Spots, And Other Pigmented Lesions

Sun Spots, Age Spots, And Other Pigmented Lesions

The spots derive their name from the fact that they were once incorrectly believed to be caused by liver problems, but they are physiologically unrelated to the liver, save for a similar color.[3] From the age of 40 onward the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure, and liver spots are very common in this age group, particularly in those who spend time in the sun.
