 Age Spots (Liver Spots)


This condition is characterized by flat, brown, gray or black spots that appear on the face, hands, arms and shoulders. Age spots are most commonly found in adults over age 40 and are usually harmless. Although age spots are also known as liver spots, they are unrelated to liver function.
