What are Hyperpigmentation Spots?

Hyperpigmentation spots are areas of skin that are darker in colour than their surroundings. They can be caused by a variety of factors such as sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations, trauma or skin conditions.

The most common types of hyperpigmentation spots are:

  • Melasma: is a condition characterized by brown or dark brown spots that appear on the face, usually on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip or nose. Melasma is caused by hormonal fluctuations, such as those during pregnancy or the use of hormonal contraceptives.

  • Lentigo: brown or black spots that appear on skin exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands or neck.

  • Nevus: these are brownish or black spots that are present at birth or appear at a younger age.

To prevent the appearance of hyperpigmentation spots, it is important to protect the skin from sun exposure, use skin care products that contain ingredients that reduce hyperpigmentation, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, other vitamins and minerals, and avoid using products that irritate or dry the skin. It is recommended that you consult a doctor or dermatologist to determine the causes of hyperpigmentation spots and to recommend the best products and treatments to address them.
