Dear friend, what you present are The spots of old age are flat marks, oval and brown, brown or black their scientific name is solar lentigos. They appear on the skin that has been most exposed to the sun over the years, such as the back of the hands, the instep of the feet, face, shoulders and upper back.
but it's not really a danger.
the treatment is based on protecting the skin as these are produced by skin changes generated by sun exposure so the use of regular sunscreens and avoiding sun exposure are a fundamental part of the treatment.
