What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a medical term that refers to any patch of skin that becomes darker than the skin surrounding it. Examples include age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory skin changes. While these dark spots can occur for different reasons–for example, as a result of sun exposure or in the form of a scar after an injury–the dark spots themselves all form when the skin cells produce excessive amounts of melanin, which is the pigment that gives the skin its color.

How to Treat Hyperpigmentation

Just like there are a number of causes for hyperpigmentation, there are also a number of different treatments available. Some treatments that we offer to treat this condition include laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and others. When you come to us for help with your hyperpigmentation, our team will take the time to discuss your needs and make personalized recommendations for treatment in order to achieve the best possible results for your individual skin.
