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
- Sun spots
- 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
- 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 in Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto & Newmarket?
Because hyperpigmentation is such a prevalent skin condition, many treatments have been developed that, when properly administered, can reduce the effects of hyperpigmentation. Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto & Newmarket offer many options, including:
- Photofacials – Treatment with intense pulsed light (IPL), called a photofacial, is frequently recommended to treat hyperpigmentation. 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.
- OxyGeneo - This is a 3-in-1 super facial which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also minimizes the pores, while hydrating and nourishing the skin. OxyGeneo brightens skin complexion by reducing pigmentation and sun damage.

What causes unwanted pigment?
Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.
