CONCERN & CONDITIONS

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that leads to the appearance of dark spots or patches on the skin. These areas may take on various shades, such as brown, black, gray, red, or pink. While hyperpigmentation isn’t typically painful or itchy, it can affect one’s self-confidence.

The good news is that various lifestyle adjustments and treatments are available to help manage this condition, with a focus on sun protection and effective skincare.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Skin acquires its color from a natural substance called melanin, which is produced by skin cells. When these cells are damaged or unhealthy, they can overproduce melanin, leading to the formation of darker patches. Hyperpigmentation may stem from various factors, including:

  • Adrenal Disorders: Conditions like Addison’s disease, where the body doesn’t produce enough cortisol.
  • Genetics: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to freckles.
  • Hormonal Changes: Such as those occurring during puberty or pregnancy.
  • Skin Injuries: Like acne, cuts, or burns, which can result in postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
  • Medications: Certain drugs, including oral contraceptives, can lead to heightened sensitivity to light.
  • Melasma: A specific form of hyperpigmentation often associated with pregnancy.
  • Nutritional Deficiencies: Not getting enough essential vitamins like B12 and folic acid.
  • Sun Damage: Often referred to as solar lentigines, these spots are a result of excessive sun exposure.
  • Thyroid Disorders: Conditions affecting the thyroid gland can also contribute to hyperpigmentation.

How To Tackle Hyperpigmentation?

The approach to managing hyperpigmentation depends on its underlying causes. Your healthcare provider may recommend lifestyle adjustments such as:

  • Sun Protection: Shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays by using sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and limiting sun exposure.
  • Vitamin Supplementation: Ensuring you receive adequate vitamins like B12 and folic acid can be beneficial.

Other treatment options may include chemical peels, cryotherapy, laser skin resurfacing, or pigmented lesion laser therapy.
