Hyperpigmentation occurs due to melanin build up in certain places of the skin, especially the face. Aging causes changes in distribution of produced melanin that provides the color to our skin. If there is a build up in one area, sun SPOTS and STAINS occur. In some situations, the pigment is concentrated on one large surface, which causes MELASMA.
The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:
- Too much Sun exposure
- Pregnancy, contraceptives, hormonal treatment
- Acne and other skin inflammatory treatments
Hyperpigmentation in the superficial layer of the skin, that occurred post inflammatory process is easier to treat, because as the superficial skin layer regenerates, the pigment fades. With time, young skin with completely evened out color appears, without pigment changes (for example dark stains after acne).
We have been doing the removing hyperpigmentation procedure for many years, and what we have learned is that there is no universal solution. Between various chemical peelings and lasers, we decide to use the laser treatment. One of those treatments is on of the most modern HARMONY LASER treatment.
