What Are Sun Spots & Sun Damage?

Sun spots, also known as solar lentigines or liver spots, are flat, brown spots that typically appear on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun.

Sun damage refers to the harmful effects that the sun’s UV rays can have on the skin. These effects can include sunburn, premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Sun Damage and Sun Spots

Why Do Sun Spots Form?

Excessive sun exposure has both visible and invisible impacts on the skin. Among the more visible signs of sun damage are sun spots, which form when skin cells in a concentrated area produce large amounts of melanin in an effort to protect the skin from further damage from the sun.

Sun spots can form on any area of the body that gets regularly exposed to UV rays from the sun. The longer you stay outside without sunscreen, the more likely your skin is to develop these spots. While sun spots rarely lead to any health complications, they may cause some cosmetic concerns.
