Brown Spots

PROBLEM: BROWN SPOTS

Brown spots are directly linked to the damaging UV light emitted from the sun. These spots range from freckles to redness or large patches of darkened skin. The formation of these skin anomalies is due to ultraviolet light increasing melanin production in the epidermis. Melanin is what gives our skin pigment and helps protect skin cells from harmful sunrays. Even though common brown spots or freckles are medically harmless, many people choose to remove them for aesthetic reasons.As we age, we become less able to guard ourselves naturally from these harmful factors, resulting in permanent freckling, pigmentation and, in most extreme circumstances, even skin cancer.

A physician must examine every unusual or suspicious blemish on the skin in order to exclude the possibility of skin cancer.Apart from sun damage, a person may develop brown blemishes called melasma. Also referred to as the “mask of pregnancy”, this hyperpigmentation usually presents itself more commonly in pregnant women and patients with darker skin tone. Melasma can be aggravated by the effects of the sun and can often become darker or cover larger facial areas if not treated.
