Hyperpigmentation & Melasma
We all strive for beautiful, evenly toned skin, but dark spots and discoloration can get in the way as we get older.
A flawless complexion is a common sign of youth and beauty, but it isn’t always the easiest thing to maintain. Over time, your skin may begin developing darkened patches or brown spots (known as hyperpigmentation). Certain types of hyperpigmentation, such as melasma, can be very frustrating and difficult to treat with traditional methods. Other common forms include age spots, liver spots, freckles, darkened circles around the eyes, and sun spots/damage.
What are the causes of hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of an excess of melanin in the skin. This increase of melanin can be brought on by several different factors, including age, genetics, and sun damage. Melasma has been found to appear more commonly among pregnant women and has even been nicknamed the “mask of pregnancy.”
Clearing up the spots
Hyperpigmentation is a very treatable condition with professional skin treatments such as laser or light energy. The ideal treatment for you will depend on your form of hyperpigmentation, size and location on the skin, and your unique skin type.
