Age Spots are an annoyance for many people. Age spots are also called Liver spots, Sun spots, or  Lentigines. They are generally caused by repeated sun damage to the skins surface, but can also be caused by impaired liver function or nutritional deficiencies. 

Age Spots appear on the skin as flat, yellow or brown discolorations and are usually harmless. The are most commonly seen in people over the age of 40.
