Skin Pigmentation

  • Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain spots on the skin. The overproduction is triggered by a variety of factors, such as sun exposure, genetic factors, age, hormonal influences, medications and skin injuries or inflammation.
  • Hyperpigmentation can cause significant distress as the dark spots tend to appear on highly visible body parts like face, hand that have been exposed to the sun and it can be difficult to hide.
  • See our dermatologist if you are concerned about any of your pigment spots
