What is Solar Lentigo?

Solar lentigo is a dark spot or patch of darkened skin caused by too much sun exposure and harmful UV rays. Solar lentigines are usually harmless but may be cosmetically unappealing for some people. As a result of too much sun exposure, it is widespread in people over 40 years old because they have had more prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays. Additionally, they are more common in fair-skinned individuals. 


Due to the nature of solar lentigo, it usually appears on the face, arms, hands, shoulders and legs and other familiar places which are highly exposed to sun and harmful UV rays without any protection. Sun protection, including sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher or covering over with protective clothing, can help reduce future occurrences of solar lentigines.

Solar Lentigo Appearance & Causes

Solar lentigo usually appears as a small, flat, or sometimes slightly raised light to dark brown coloured spot, although it can vary on different skin tones. The spots can range from 1-5 mm in diameter and often appear in clusters. Solar Lentigo is visually similar to a sunspot. However, they can be distinguished from a freckle (ephelis) by the darker colour, wider distribution, and the fact that they do not fade during winter.
