Hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of melanin in the skin secondary to ultraviolet exposure, trauma or inflamation. Does your acne leave behind a dark spot for months after the pimple is healed?? This is your skin reacting to inflamation. Does your skin discoloration worsen with sun exposure? Hyperpigmentation also accompanies sun damage.
Hyperpigmentation and Melasma CAN be treated!! Although there is no cure, the very products & treatments that help to block the path to brown spots can also help with anti-aging by improving skin texture, fine lines, and helping to prevent pre-cancerous skin lesions!!
