It is defined as a disorder in which there is a formation of brown spots on the face. It may also appear on the body. They are also known as lentigines. It occurs as a result of over exposure to the sun. As the process of aging begins than the skin becomes more and more prone to injury by sun.

The skin has a melanin pigment which has the ability to absorb the sun light and play a role in the protection of skin from ultra violet rays. But as the process of aging goes on than the ability of skin to counter act with the ultra violet rays decreases and so age spots are formed.
