Hyperpigmentation is a medical term used to describe darker patches of skin. These patches result from excess melanin production, which can be caused by everything from acne scars and sun damage to hormone fluctuations.
If you’re dealing with hyperpigmentation, know that you aren’t alone. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition, and there are a number of different treatment options available.
What is hyperpigmentation? and why does it occur?
Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain spots on the skin.
Hyperpigmentation results in flat, darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in color, and can vary in size and shape.
What Makes Hyperpigmentation And Dark Spots Appear?
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an overproduction of melanin – the pigment that gives our skin, hair, and eyes it’s natural color – in patches of the skin. This overproduction is triggered by a variety of factors, but the main ones can be linked back to sun exposure, genetic factors, age, hormonal influences, and skin injuries or inflammation.
What Can You Do About Hyperpigmentation?
Dermatological treatments – anti-pigmentation procedures
A chemical peel is one way to remove hyperpigmentation and reveal new and evenly pigmented skin. Chemical peels involve applying an acidic solution to the face, hands or feet to remove the surface layers of the skin. These chemicals cause the skin to blister and eventually peel off, revealing new and evenly pigmented skin beneath.
Laser treatments have a similar effect to chemical peels, but the treatment can be applied more precisely. Laser therapies have much the same effect but tend to be more precise, as the dermatologist has more control over the intensity of the treatment. They involve ‘zapping’ the affected areas with high-energy light. The mildest treatments work just on the skin’s epidermis (surface layer), while more intense treatments can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. These dermatological treatments can be very effective against hyperpigmentation.
