Age and Brown Spot Treatment | San Jose, Mountain View, San Mateo
Age and brown spots are blemishes that appear on the skin as a person ages. The most common of these spots are seborrheic keratoses- brown or yellow-brown raised spots that can happen anywhere on the body. Other common age spots in the elderly are liverspots, actinic keratoses and Campbell De Morgan’s spots – red, pinpoint blemishes. While most age spots are harmless, any inexplicable blemish may represent skin cancer and should be examined by a physician. Brown spots that have irregularities of brown color or irregular borders also should be shown to a physician.
