Hyperpigmentation is very common and most often completely harmless. The appearance of skin discoloration occurs over time due to aging and sun damage. When this happens, patches of skin become darker in color, giving you an uneven complexion. This issue can affect everyone and occurs when excess amounts of melanin form deposits in the skin.
If you’re experiencing skin discoloration, we encourage you to give our team a call. We work hard to provide our patients with the professional skin care services they deserve. Get in touch today to explore our full range of treatment options.
Hyperpigmentation happens when cells called melanocytes to begin to create too much pigment. This causes age spots or patches on the skin’s surface to appear in excess. This type of skin discoloration can happen anywhere on the body and can be exacerbated by inflammation, skin trauma, medications, certain cosmetics, and conditions like melasma. Hyperpigmentation from acne is also really common, especially in younger people. If these issues sound familiar to you, we are happy to help you restore your skin’s natural beauty.
Here are some causes of Hyperpigmentation:
Excessive Sun Exposure – Brown spots and uneven skin tone develop as a result of repeatedly being exposed to UV light and sun damage. In this case, too much melanin is being produced.
Hormonal Changes – Melasma occurs as a result of hormone-related hyperpigmentation caused by increased hormone stimulation. This is often experienced by pregnant women, or women taking contraceptives.
Pollution – Harmful gasses and particles from traffic air pollution can penetrate the skin and lead to the development of brown spots.
Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation – This cause of uneven skin tone happens as a result of scarring, which can happen after acne breakouts or skin injury.
Genetics – For some individuals, hyperpigmentation is passed from generation to generation.
