Many different issues can cause skin discoloration, some of which are a result of underlying medical conditions or injuries that lead to uneven coloring, patches, or spots.

There are also certain types of treatable skin discolorations that mostly occur without reason. Melasma and age spots are two of the most common types of skin discoloration. 

Age spots and melasma are both harmless in terms of symptoms, but the uneven coloring they cause can be a cosmetic issue for many. Fortunately, the Image Renu Dermatology team can help fade or remove these skin discolorations with treatment.

Age Spots

Sometimes called liver spots, age spots are dark, circular shapes on your skin that range from freckle-sized to one-half inch in diameter. Age spots are common in people over the age of 50 and can occur on areas of the skin that receive frequent sun exposure, most notably your hands and face.

Melasma

This is a common skin problem that primarily affects your face and leads to brown to gray-brown patches. It can also appear in areas with repetitive sun exposure, including the arms and neck. Melasma is most common in women with darker skin tones, pregnant women, and women who take birth control pills or hormone replacements. It can also worsen with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
