What is hyperpigmentation and how should you treat it?

With summer upon us, it would be an appropriate time to discuss hyperpigmentation.

What is it?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess amount of melanin forms spots on the skin. If you notice this, no need to be alarmed. It is quite common in pregnant women and women on birth control, but it can affect anyone! Now how do we work on this? Prevention and treatment. Wearing sunscreen and reapplying it throughout the day will help to prevent it as well as protect any already existing spots. Being more careful about sun exposure is an important thing to pay attention to also.


A good combination of exfoliating and lightening skincare products is also helpful to treat hyperpigmentation. Here at the studio we carry Image Skincare’s Iluma line which is focused on lighting the skin and diminishing all forms of pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
