What causes Brown Spots?

Brown spots. Sun spots. Liver spots. Whatever you've heard them called, these flat, brown or black spots can be quite unsightly. And since they develop in the areas where your skin is exposed to the sun, they are generally highly visible and difficult to conceal with clothing. The two main causes of these skin spots are:

  • Sun exposure
  • Environmental toxins

Some of the most common areas for them to crop up include:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Shoulder
  • Hands

Wearing sunscreen and protecting your skin from sun exposure are good ways to prevent sun spots, but what do you do if you already have them? Many people over the age of 50 begin to notice these spots on their skin, but younger people get them too. Especially younger people who have spent a lot of time in the sun.

Cosmetic skin care specialist, Dr. Monica Bonakdar, has many years of experience treating sun spots and other problems. She can assess your skin damage and explain the best options for treatment, which generally takes the form of laser resurfacing, intense pulsed light therapy, chemical peels or microdermabrasion.
