Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes the skin to darken as a result of excess production of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that gives the skin its colour.
There are several types of hyperpigmentation:
Melasma: can be caused by hormonal changes and may develop during pregnancy.
Sunspots: These are related to sun exposure over time.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a result of injury to the skin.
Hyperpigmentation can be treated with:
ZO and Obagi topical brightening treatments.
Hydrafacial with ZO Brightalive booster.
