IGH has not one thing to do with the sun,it simply becomes more apparent as you tan. It is the absense of melanin (color) just as it is when your hair turns gray. As we age we lose pigment an these small spots do increase each year as we age. They have proven that people who have nevere tanned still get them. Grafting of healthy pigmented skin has shown to help just as Cryotherapy. It will still continue to happen in other areas as you age. The assumption it happens because of the sun has no basis and is simply a guess from those who put little time and effort in to the actual cause which is simply age.
