Sunspots are flat brown spots that develop on the skin and are noncancerous and completely harmless. We may want to remove them cosmetically to improve the appearance of the skin and achieve a youthful glow.
As we age, we notice spots developing on our skin. These are often caused by sun damage from youth. . Excessive exposure to tanning beds may also contribute to the formation of sunspots. When your skin is exposed to UV radiations, it produces more melanin (pigment) in order to protect the deeper layers of skin.
