Understanding Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is darkening of the skin due to an increase in melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color. While most hyperpigmentation is not worrisome, it can be very bothersome because it creates uneven skin tone. Discolored patches typically occur on the face, neck, décolletage, arms, and hands. Just as there are numerous causes of hyperpigmentation , there are also varied treatments.

“With hyperpigmentation, prevention is forefront. The use of sunscreen as a daily regimen cannot be overemphasized” says Dr. Abraham. “At Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine, we take a comprehensive approach to treatment and reoccurrence prevention.”
