Hyperpigmentation is the most common condition clients seek my help for. Dark spots left from old acne lesions can be quite pronounced and if not treated with the correct products & professional treatments, it leaves many feeling frustrated, defeated & it can have a profound effect on self-confidence.
Hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of an inflammatory process in the skin. When the skin is inflamed due to acne, sun exposure or injury (cuts/burns), extra melanin is deposited into the skin & hyperpigmentation occurs.
Hormone fluctuations due to medication use & pregnancy can also cause hyperpigmentation.
There are several different treatment options available for hyperpigmentation but having the right person, the right product & patience is key to treat this condition because in most instances, hyperpigmentation does take a long time to fade & correct completely. Lasers for skin of color has also been used with great efficacy for hyperpigmentation.
