    Brown sun spots are a form of hyperpigmentation. “Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin caused by overactive skin cells called melanocytes,” David Bank, MD, president of the New York State Society for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, told us. The process can be triggered by sun rays, changing hormone levels, illness and medications.
