Most skin blemishes are caused by prolonged exposure to harmful sunlight. However, skin blemishes can also be seen due to factors such as genetic predisposition, the use of the wrong cosmetics, certain medications, and pregnancy. Skin spots not only cause an unsightly appearance, but they can also appear as a symptom of certain health problems. Although some skin blemishes, such as birthmarks, are harmless, if skin blemishes are found, a dermatologist should be consulted. It should be noted that the methods used to treat skin blemishes are performed by expert dermatologists. Improper application can cause greater skin problems.

What are skin spots?

Due to the excessive production or irregularity of melanocytes, the skin presents a natural color, so spots appear on the skin. Although most spots are caused by prolonged exposure to the sun, genetic factors, hormone drugs, pregnancy, and some chemicals can also damage the cellular structure of melanocytes. Generally speaking, spots on the face, hands, back, and chest exposed to the sun can cause poor appearance, and in some cases, maybe a sign of serious health problems (such as skin cancer).

Types of skin spots

There are different types of skin blemishes that can occur congenitally or later.

Freckles, especially on fair-skinned people, are caused by the concentration of melanocytes in certain areas. Freckles can be yellow or brown and can appear in childhood and adulthood. Freckles darkened by the sun; more common on the face, back and hands.

Chloasma

chloasma is the name of black or brown spots that appear especially in areas exposed to sunlight. Melasma is common on the nose, forehead, upper lip, and cheeks. It may occur in men, but it is also common in women. In addition to sunlight, pregnancy, birth control pills, cosmetics, and genetic factors can also cause melasma.

Vitiligo

Milky white spots appear on the skin due to the death of melanocytes or insufficient production in the body. Vitiligo usually appears on the face, arms, legs, and genital area. Although genetic factors are thought to be the cause of vitiligo, the exact cause is still unclear.

Birthmark

Congenital skin discoloration is called a birthmark. Birthmarks are divided into vascular and pigmented, and most of them are harmless. A brown, gray, or black birthmark may appear before birth, or it may appear sometime later.

Acne

Acne is caused by excessive secretion of skin oils and usually occurs in puberty. Acne is caused by makeup, excessive sweating, stress, depression, or hormonal changes; acne can appear as black or white spots. Squeezing acne or incorrect treatment can cause permanent spots on the face.
