Hyperpigmentation and Skin Discoloration

Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin which is meant to protect your skin from photo damage. Melanin is produced by the melanocyte cells located in your skin’s epidermis. When your melanocyte cells become damaged or its health is impacted, excess melanin can be produced. When your body produces excess melanin, your skin gets darker (hyperpigmentation) especially the forehead, cheeks, upper lip, nose, and chin. Hyperpigmentation collectively includes sun spots, age spots, liver spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Acne, pregnancy, aging, and sun exposure can all cause skin discoloration.

If your hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration is in the advanced/stubborn stage you will require in-clinic treatment which may include multiple sessions of laser treatments, microneedling, chemical peels, or prescription medication to correct it. Some of these treatments may require downtime.
