Hyperpigmentation is the appearance of dark marks, spots, and splotches on the face and skin. It’s largely due to – or made worse by – sun exposure. We distinguish between all kinds of hyperpigmentation and, in professional treatments, have a number of treatment strategies, dependent on the exact cause, extent, and location of the skin damage.

Prevent and treat:
  • Dark marks
  • Mottled pigmentation
  • Uneven skin color
  • Thick make-up application
  • Hormonal pigmentation (Melasma and Chloasma)
  • Solar pigmentation
  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  • Acne scarring

Here are a few powerful professional hyperpigmentation treatments, plus a few awesome pigmentation products to take home with you.

Your concerns
There are 3 types of hyperpigmentation, based on what the main trigger is:

  • Sun-induced hyperpigmentation is caused by sun exposure – melanin is your body’s natural sunscreen, so more sun means more pigment
  • Hormonal hyperpigmentation is a result of fluctuations in hormones – common to pregnant women (melasma or chloasma) and women taking contraceptives.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is common after an inflamed wound heals – most common with acne scarring.

In all 3 cases, however, the main aim of professional treatment is usually to help reduce the visible pigmentation by promoting exfoliation.

Faster results
Generally speaking, the more exfoliation the treatment can produce in treating hyperpigmentation, the faster the results will become visible. So, a little flaking and peeling of the skin is usually required. Which means there needs to be a little downtime after each peel.

Light, non-peeling treatments can work just as effectively, but this requires more treatments over a longer period of time to achieve the same results.
