Freckles/ Age Spots
What are Freckles/ Age Spots?
Having freckles is genetic and is related to the presence of the melanocortin. Freckles are often found in people with fair hair such a blonde, strawberry blonde, dishwasher blonde or most commonly red hair. The formation of freckles is triggered by exposure to sunlight. The exposure to UV-B radiation activates melanocytes to increase the melanin production, which causes freckles to become darker and more numerous. Freckles are predominatly found on the face, but they may appear on skin exposed to the sun.
