Hyperpigmentation

How to treat brown spots without surgery using non-invasive techniques?

The presence of brown spots, also called hyperpigmentation, pigment spots or age spots is very common, especially in adults. Although they may appear on all areas of the body, these spots are especially aesthetically inconvenient when they are found in the face, neck, neckline and hands.

What’s causing brown spots?

Lentigo, the scientific name for brown spots, appears after prolonged exposure to the sun. These stains are an accumulation of melanin and can be found on both men and women’s bodies. Often called age spots, brown spots, although resulting from prolonged or intense exposure to UV rays, are more commonly seen in people 40 years of age and older. Hormones, as well as genetic makeup, also affect the appearance and proliferation of brown spots.
