Age spots, melasma and areas of skin darkening (sunspots), are all types of hyperpigmentation that accompany the aging process and are top priority on the list of skin conditions for treatment. Whilst pigmentation refers to the colour in our skin and is determined by the type and amount of melanin granules (little vesicles that darken skin cells) that our melanocytes (pigment producing cells) produce, hyperpigmentation is when there is an abnormality or overactivity in the amount of pigment being produced. This is due to: aging, trauma to the area, UV radiation, medications and medical conditions, hormones and with some types of hyperpigmentation.
Whilst it is vital to ensure you spend limited time in direct harsh sun exposure and reapply quality SPF, it is equally as vital to ensure you have ingredients in your skincare regime that are clinically proven to combat the many elements that encompass the formation of hyper pigment in your skin as well as committing to an in-clinic treatment program with a skilled skin therapist who understands the process of pigment formation and the most suitable options for your specific hyper pigment.
