Hyperpigmentation is the term for skin spots that are darker than one’s normal skin tone. Caused by excess production of melanin – a pigment which determines skin & hair color – hyperpigmentation is a very common skin concern which may occur for various reasons. For example, dark spots might appear on the skin as one ages, due to sun exposure over time. Melanin overproduction leading to hyperpigmentation is also common during pregnancy, as well as after skin lesions heal. At Kessel Dermatology, we offer advanced skin hyperpigmentation treatment options for those looking to lighten dark spots in order to achieve a more even skin tone.
