Uneven accumulation of skin pigments (often known as hyperpigmentation) is a common skin condition. Dark spots – known as age spots or sun spots – usually appear on the face, hands or other parts of the body that are constantly exposed to sunlight. The main sign of hyperpigmentation is darkening of some areas of the skin. Spots can be very large and can occur in any area of the skin.
