Brown spots overview
Brown spots, also known as sun spots, are the tan to dark brown, freckle-like marks caused by excessive sun exposure. They commonly appear on the face, chest, shoulders and arms because those areas of the body get the most sunlight. Ultraviolet (UV) rays accelerate the production of melanin, which gives skin its brown pigmentation. Brown spots result from overactive pigment cells and melanin being grouped together in higher concentrations.
Why freckles form
Like sun spots, freckles also appear on the skin as a result of sun exposure. They may vary in color but are primarily darker than the surrounding skin and are uniform in color. They are also a genetic trait, meaning you likely inherited them from your parents.
Freckles tend to appear on the face, but can also occur in places that receive a lot of direct sunlight, like the shoulders and arms. They are produced, or may become more pronounced, when UV rays trigger the body to create more melanin to protect the skin. Freckles are harmless and are not considered a medical condition, but if you are unhappy about their appearance, we provide treatments to help reduce them.
