What exactly is hyperpigmentation? It’s any patch of skin that looks darker than your natural skin tone due to overproduction of the brown pigment melanin. Hyperpigmentation can be the result of sun exposure, aging, and other factors. Today there are more options for erasing the harmless but sometimes annoying discoloration than ever before.

The number one way to prevent hyperpigmentation is to wear sunscreen daily! We carry a variety of products that contain SPF. Outside of a good sunscreen, we recommend using a topical retinoid to help promote the overture of skin cells, which can get rid of stubborn hyperpigmentation.

Whichever product you choose, note that it takes about three months before effects become apparent. You may experience some sensitivity in the first three weeks, including some light, flaky peeling and tenderness.

At Enhanced Medical Aesthetics we can help come up with a treatment plan that is perfect for you.
