What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is an overproduction of pigment – a condition in which patches of the skin become darker in color than the skin around them. This darkening may occur due to hormones or an excess amount of melanin (the brown pigment that produces normal skin color) and can be caused by sun exposure, acne, and medications.
Types of Hyperpigmentation
Hormonal changes can also affect the skin, causing dark patches to form in large areas of the skin such as the forehead, face, and stomach. This type of hyperpigmentation is common during pregnancy and can also affect women taking birth control pills.
How to treat it
Skincare products by iS CLINICAL may assist in the lightening of current dark spots on the skin as well as helping to prevent hyperpigmentation in the future by being proactive. These products help provide long-term visible improvements to the appearance of your skin. Microdermabrasion can have long-lasting effects on your skin’s overall texture. This procedure is beneficial in that it removes the uppermost layer of the skin, thus getting rid of the dark spots caused by hyperpigmentation.
