It depends on the size and the texture of the black spots. Some moles are black and can also become cancerous if they are not removed. Some black spots are the scars from ruptured acne pimples or the result of squeezing blackheads. The black spots could also be age, liver, or sun spots.

This may be caused by sun exposure in the most extreme cases. This also may be an internal organ problem that is causing black spots on the skin. Look at where the spots are back of the hands or elsewhere?

If they are on your face, they are probably comedones, more commonly known as blackheads. Some people are more prone to getting these, and they are usually caused by hormones. Proper skin cleansing, use of a topical treatment that contains salicylic acid, and regular facials can help reduce the appearance of blackheads.
