What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s constantly changing due to external factors (like the sun) or internal factors (like diet or hormones). It’s not unusual to experience a change in the color and evenness of your skin in certain areas, especially as you age. These changes are called hyperpigmentation. If you’re experiencing this condition and wish you could make your skin look like it used to, we have good news! Pennington Med Spa & Transformation Weight Loss Clinic offers skin care treatments that may help reduce the signs of hyperpigmentation.

What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that causes areas of your skin to be darker than the rest. These irregularities are fairly common. In fact, age spots, liver spots, acne, melasma, and freckles all technically fall into this category. While it’s a normal skin condition, many people feel self-conscious about hyperpigmentation. Advances in skin care mean that it can be more easily treated than in years past.

How can I treat it?

There are many treatments that can be used to reduce the visible signs of hyperpigmentation. Our patients have gotten some of the best results from our Perfect Derma Peel. This peel is great for all skin types and is a good option if you’re dealing with hyperpigmentation. An IPL laser treatment can also give you good results. Consult with a skin care expert at Pennington Med Spa & Transformation Weight Loss Clinic to find the solution that’s best for your skin.

Can it be harmful?

In many cases, discoloration is the only issue that may be experienced. But in some instances, hyperpigmentation may be a sign of an underlying issue. This is why it’s important to meet with a skin care expert before trying any at-home methods of treatment.
