Age Spots

As people get older, age spots can appear on the face and body as a result of genetics or long-term exposure to the sun. Age spots are not cancerous, but spots caused by the sun could be accompanied by red, scaly, raised lesions called actinic keratoses. Also, spots that are especially dark may look like age spots, but are in fact cancerous lesions, so it is important to get evaluated by a Dermatologist when those arise. If you are interested in minimizing these blemishes, Middlebelt Dermatology Center offers cosmetic treatments & products to aid in the reduction of the appearance of age spots.
