What Is Hyperpigmentation & What Are Its Causes?

Melanin is a group of natural pigments that gives our skin, hair and eyes their colour. When your body produces excess melanin in the form of dark spots on the skin, you have hyperpigmentation. Commonly found on the skin of the face, arms and hands, hyperpigmentation is often visible in the form of:

  • Age spots
  • Liver spots
  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma 
  • Any dark or brown spot

Hyperpigmentation has a variety of causes that we encounter on a daily basis. These causes include: 

  • Sun exposure
  • Hormonal changes
  • Heredity
  • Acne
  • Failed skin treatments

In most cases, hyperpigmentation is a harmless skin condition. However, if you have moles or other possible signs of skin cancer, you should visit a dermatologist for a diagnosis.

What Products and Treatments Are Available for Hyperpigmentation?

Because hyperpigmentation is such a prevalent skin condition, many treatments have been developed that, when properly administered, can reduce the effects of hyperpigmentation. Toronto spas, such as Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre offer many options, including: 

  • Photofacials – Treatment with intense pulsed light (IPL), called a photofacial, is frequently recommended to treat hyperpigmentation in Toronto. However, improperly administered photofacials can worsen hyperpigmentation, so choose your clinic carefully.
  • Chemical peels – Various chemical peels are also used to treat hyperpigmentation. It’s important that great care is taken, as pigment irregularities and scarring can occur if not done by an experienced clinician with close follow-up.
  • Laser peels – Laser resurfacing treatments may be utilized to reduce hyperpigmentation as well. CO2 lasers and fractional lasers are popular choices for such procedures.
  • Topical skin products – Products containing skin lightening ingredients, such as retinoids and Vitamin C, are often used to reduce hyperpigmentation.

All of these treatments can be effective, depending on your skin type, the amount of hyperpigmentation you have and the skill of the clinician enacting the procedure.
