    Liver spots are sharply defined, round or oval, brown or black flat patches of skin most commonly seen on the backs of the hands or the face. The spots may appear singly or clustered together. The hyperpigmentation is uniform within each particular lesion and varies from light to dark brown. The lesions are flat and oval, and can be as larger as several inches or as small as ¼ of an inch. They are most noticeable on the hands, face, shoulders, and back (those areas that have had chronic sun exposure).
