Sun spots are another common phrase for ‘age spots’ or ‘brown spots’. They are also called lentigos or solar lentigines. They appear on our skin in areas typically exposed to the sun. As the sun damages our skin over time, we will develop melanin deposits, causing sun spots. Wearing sunscreen can help prevent the development of sun spots.
