Hyperpigmentation is very common skin condition and usually trigged by hormonal changes, aging, skin injuries and/or excessive sun exposure. But what is hyperpigmentation? According to Wikipedia ”In dermatology, hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin or nails caused by increased melanin.” There’s two types of pigmentation disorders that usually treated by aestheticians, post inflammatory pigmentation, usually cost by skin injury, such as acne and hyperpigmentation.
Most form of hyperpigmentation is caused by an excess production of melanin. Normal melanin production can be disturbed by aging process, hormonal imbalance (such as pregnancy) and/or skin injury. People with darker Asian, Mediterranean or African skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially if they have excess sun exposure.
People affected with hyperpigmentation should be armed with time and patients before starting a treatment. Hyperpigmentation is takes time to be lifted and even when the problem is taking care of, clients should continue professional home regiment to prevent discolorations from coming back. Remember that our skin calls have memory and once damaged they will always grow back discolored unless professional products with melanin inhibitors applied daily to prevent it from happening.
Professional most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation is chemical peels that include AHA’s and BHA’s such as salicylic acid, Kojic acid, tretinoin (Retinol), licorice root and hydroquinone.

How do I get rid of brown spots on my face?
Brown spots or lentigenes caused by excess melanin production, usually due to sun exposure. Melanocytes release melanin when it gets triggered by an enzyme known as tyrosinase. Melanin-inhibiting ingredients most often attempt to stop this enzyme before it spurs an increase in melanin production. There are a few topical methods of fading the spots, but the most effective way involves a combination of sunscreen, tretinoin and hydroquinone. Most recommended professional treatment for brown spots is chemical peels.
Are chemical peels harmful to my skin?
Chemical peels done professionally can be very beneficial for your skin. It can help to minimize acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, acne breakouts. Chemical peels also create process called controlled inflammation on patient’s skin, this process stimulates dermis to produce more collagen and elastin, which we all know is needed for youthful and healthy skin. I suggest superficial peels instead of deep peels. This approach lets aesthetician adjust treatment according to your skin changing needs, plus helps to minimize side effects and healing time. With superficial peels optimal results can be reached after 5-6 treatments and healing time after each peel is no more then 2-3 days.
