Age spots are not necessarily the same thing as hyperpigmentation. Age spots are from the sun and should really be called sun spots - since they have little to do with age! Hyperpigmentation can be due to many reasons. Hyperpigmentation can be secondary to the sun, lasers, melasma (hormones), from acne etc. It is best to classify what the underlying process is and to then find the best treatment for your condition. Hypopigmentation are spots lighter than your skin color and can be the result of a myriad of conditions ranging from fungus to burns.
