With aging and sun exposure the skin can develop pigmented lesions or spots. The appearance of pale brown to dark brown spots on the skin is often referred to as solar lentigines, liver spots, or age spots. These can cause a mottled or aged appearance to the skin. They are common in areas of the face, neck, arms, hands and upper back. Some individuals will have pigment changes of the skin for other reasons such as melasma or sometimes skin cancers such as melanoma.

The skin with time, aging, and certain genetic factors can also develop red or vascular spots in addition to visible and unsightly veins. Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin. Some large varicose veins can be painful and very large ones sometimes require ablation (destruction) or excision. Spider veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue vessels that also twist and turn. Spider veins are easily visible through the skin, as well.
