Hyperpigmenation Treatments

Hyperpigmentation implies that excess, unwanted pigment has created a dark spot that is beyond the norm for a given person’s complexion tone. This can happen for many reasons.

What are the most common reasons for dark spots and hyperpigmentation?

  1. Healed skin injuries including pimples, rashes, and wounds that leave excess pigment (called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
  2. Melasma
  3. Age spots (solar lentigines and seborrheic keratosis)
  4. Thickened and excessive dead skin cells that have held melanin pigment

Because melanin pigment production is stimulated by UV sun exposure, the most important treatment step is sun protection.

What skin care products do dermatologists use to treat skin with dark spots due to hyperpigmentation?

  1. Broad spectrum sun protection is essential to prevent pigment production that makes the problem worse.
  2. Exfoliation of the dead cell layer that holds pigment will lighten hyperpigmentation. An exfoliating sponge, scrub or shower cloth is a simple way to exfoliate excess pigment in dead cells. Use of glycolic acid that helps loosen dead cells also helps even skin color, which improves hyperpigmentation.
  3. Using of skin care products that lower the production rate of melanin will help as well. These include retinoids (retinol and tretinoin), vitamin C, hydroquinone, and some botanicals such as kojic acid.
