What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation appears as darkened patches or spots on the skin that make skin look uneven. It is the skins way of protecting itself against trauma and can appear due to environmental damage, breakouts and hormonal changes in the body.
What Causes Pigmentation?
This is caused by overstimulation of melanocytes which create patches of darker skin and become more pronounced as we age. It is common to get this type of pigmentation following over exposure to the sun or tanning beds.
Often found on the hands and face in older patients, these spots vary in size, they are harmless but unsightly and very ageing.
Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation or Trauma
Scars can often heal with hyperpigmentation, this is more common in people with darker complexions. The scarring can be post-surgical, accidental or most commonly from bites, stings and scratches.
Melasma is often associated with hormonal changes in the skin, this can be from taking the contraceptive pill or can show up during pregnancy – often referred to as a ‘pregnancy mask’.
