Pigmentation

The Low down on pigmentation

The cells which are responsible for the colour of your skin can overproduce or underproduce skin pigment. This can lead to visible uneven skin colouring, which can be either darker or lighter than your normal complexion.

Causes

Causes vary depending on the type of pigmentation. However, all types of pigmentation can get worse from too much sun exposure. Hormones can also play a part, so some will see a change in their skin pigmentation during puberty and, pregnancy, and as a result of birth control, and even stress!

Types of

Pigmentation Disorders

Melasma / Chloasma faciei

Darker areas of pigment on the skin, usually found on the face, neck, arms and upper body. This can be caused by your thyroid, hormones, pregnancy or too much sun.

Sun Spots

Freckles and darker spots of varying sizes that may merge together if not treated.

Age Spots

Brown spots found in areas frequently exposed to the sun. Age spots are either lighter (hypo) or darker (hyper) pigmentation.

Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

This is a response to injury of the skin and can be the result of an existing skin condition, burns, friction or aggressive clinical treatments like chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser treatment. This condition typically resolves with time and usually responds to topical products, though it will recur.

Now for the answers...

how to treat hyperpigmentation?

Pigmentation can be suppressed or lifted out, depending on the type. Treatments include pigment suppressing products, chemical peels and laser therapy.

Ongoing care includes the use of spf 30 sun protection, occasional laser treatment top-ups and possible use of skin lighteners.
