What Causes Freckles?

Freckles are a result of harmless melanin overproduction. Melanin is a polymer responsible for skin and hair color (pigmentation). When your skin is overexposed to the sun, brown spots and hyperpigmentation are soon to follow. In some cases, that exposure causes small dots to form on the skin instead. Some people may have pale freckled skin, while others may have darker-looking dots. The likelihood of getting these odd little dots is attributed to both the natural environment and genetic predisposition.

What Are the Signs?

These dots are typically grouped into two categories: ephelides and solar lentigines. Ephelides are a common type of pigmentation. They appear red or light brown and tend to develop in the first 2-3 years of a person’s life after sun exposure.

Solar lentigines, on the other hand, are dark patches of skin that develop during adulthood. Despite the categorization, freckles can vary in size and color from person to person. We all have unique skin characteristics and therefore could have this condition expressed in different ways.
