What is Hyperpigmentation?
Many people have hyperpigmentation, which is a prevalent aesthetic issue characterized by darkened patches that develop on the skin. Usually, as the result of increased melanin production, these pigmented spots may show up any place on the face, neck, or body and vary in shape and diameter. Areas of skin discoloration might also be a result of acne marks or brown spots from certain conditions, such as melasma, eczema, or acne. At Imperial Dermatology, Double Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Simona Bartos offers innovative treatment solutions that can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and produce a more even-looking complexion. Contact our Hollywood, FL office to schedule an appointment for a skin consultation with Dr. Bartos.
Treatment Options for Hyperpigmentation
The specific cause of hyperpigmentation can vary based on the type you have. Melasma is generally caused by genetic factors, as well as hormone changes during pregnancy while sun spots are the result of prolonged sunlight exposure. Other types of hyperpigmentation include red, inflamed skin caused by acne blemishes and scars. Your skin will be assessed during a consultation at Imperial Dermatology, and Dr. Bartos will help you decide on the best treatment for your needs and skin type. There are many ways to treat hyperpigmentation, such as topical creams, gels, or lotions, which may be prescribed to help encourage skin lightening. Other dermatology treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments, which can help resurface and rejuvenate the skin.
