Age spots (also called liver spots, though they are not connected to the liver) are dark brown or grayish areas of pigment on the skin. Despite their name, age spots are not directly caused by aging (though they occur most commonly in adults over the age of 40). Sun exposure is the cause of age spots; as a result, they are most common on the hands, face, shoulders, and other areas frequently exposed to the sun.
Birthmarks can be present at birth or appear in the weeks after birth. They can be a variety of colors, including red, brown, or blue-gray. The precise cause of birthmarks is still unknown, although they are harmless.
Freckles are caused by an increase in melanin (dark pigment). Contributing factors in the development of freckles are genetics and sun exposure. They are most common in those with fair skin and become more prominent with increased sun exposure.
Prolonged or repeated sun exposure causes the skin to produce more melanin, a dark pigment which not only gives the skin color but protects it from the sun. Over time this added pigment can cause a variety of discolorations, such as melasma (brown areas on the face), uneven pigmentation (irregular brown or red coloration), and age spots (see above).
