Freckles and Lentigens

What is it?

Freckles also known as ephelides are the accumulation of pigmented cells in the skin. Mostly seen in fair skinned people freckles mostly appear on the face, neck and shoulders.
Increased melanin production on exposure to UV-B radiation from the sun causes freckles, so, a regular use of sunscreen can inhibit freckles formation. Freckles are seen as flat, brown to red in color marks.
Lentigines are seen as pigmented spots in between normal skin with well defined border.
Basically lentigines always spread in a linear manner. The most common type of lentigo are lentigo simplex, solar lentigo (liver spots), PUVA lentigines and ink spot lentigines.
