Age spots are flat, round, brownish spots that look like freckles. Benign age spots aren't dangerous. If they bother you, see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can treat them with bleaching creams, laser therapy, or such procedures as chemical peels. Using sunscreen can prevent the development of more spots. Sun makes them darker so use sunscreen - at least an SPF 30 with 3-4 star UVA protection. Common skin cream ingredients like vitamin C, vitamin A, glycolic acid, emblica, and licorice extract can lighten brown spots when used for months.
