Hyperpigmentation or dark or age spots are usually caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne and hormonal changes such as those experienced during pregnancy.
The more pigment you have genetically in your skin, the more prone to hyperpigmentation you will be. This is especially true if you have excess sun exposure. Pigment producing cells are notoriously delicate and are easily damaged causing splotches of pigment. Treating hyperpigmentation is therefore tricky as treatments need to respect and protect these delicate cells. Daily and consistent home care is essential to successful in-clinic treatments.
Another form of hyperpigmentation is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These are the dark and discolored spots that can appear following acne, skin injury, hair removal, aggressive skin care and picking. They will often fade but the length of time it takes can be very frustrating and in some cases fading can be severely compromised.
We recommend our Clinical Skin Care Consultation as a first step in assisting in resolving this often frustrating skin concern.
