Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body or face, these are often an inherited characteristic and are triggered by sun exposure.

Melasma is similar in appearance to age spots but the patches are larger and due to hormonal changes such as pregnancy “often referred to as the mask of pregnancy”. Darkened skin on the face, abdomen and other areas occur. Post Menopausal hormone replacement therapy can also trigger melasma.

Acne can also leave dark spots after the condition clears, injuries to the skin including some surgeries can also cause dark spots caused by the hyperproduction of melanin during irritation and healing.
