Hyperpigmentation is where patches of the skin can become darker than the surrounding skin. It is fairly common complaint for all skin types and is generally very treatable and harmless although the uneven skin colour can people some people feel self conscious.
There are different causes of your hyperpigmentation, from acne or skin injury creating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) or from sunspots (age spots) or melasma from hormonal changes/pregnancy. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.
It is important to consider how the pigmentation occurred and this will be discussed in consultations, so we know how’s best to treat it. At Perfect Skin Solutions we want a long term solution not a quick fix so we will help manage the reason you first got the pigmentation in the first place, ie reduced oil/sebum production if caused by acne to help reduce new breakouts appearing, lighten the pigmentation and prevent it coming back with a good physical filter SPF and or maintenance treatments.
