What Is Hyperpigmentation And How To Treat It?

4 years ago By Nulook Medspa Skincare

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern. It affects people of all skin types. Usually, it is harmless but sometimes it can be caused by a medical condition. Hyperpigmentation refers to patches of skin that are darker than surrounding areas. There are different types of hyperpigmentation such as melasma, age-spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Age-spots, also known as sun spots or liver spots, is a common skin complaint. These spots appear on face, hands, décolleté, and other parts of body that are often exposed to the sun. The best way to protect yourself from sun damage is to wear sunscreen with SPF higher than 30 on a daily basis regardless of the weather or season. It is best to reapply it every 2 hours when you are out in the sun. If your skin has already been affected by the sun, there are many options for hyperpigmentation treatments from lightening creams to peels and laser treatments.
