Hyperpigmentation is the name we give to patches of skin discoloration, especially on the face. Some kinds of hyperpigmentation can include melasma and age spots. While hyperpigmentation is generally harmless, the uneven skin tone it produces can be upsetting to some people.  At Refresh Med Spa LA, we have a variety of techniques to help skin imperfections and produce a more even skin tone.

How Does Hyperpigmentation Occur?

Melanocytes in your skin are responsible for producing a pigment called melanin, which gives your skin its color. However, in some cases, inflammation can occur which causes that melanin to pool in certain areas, producing dark patches. This cosmetic concern can occur for a number of reasons, including genetics, pregnancy, hyperpigmentation from acne, skin trauma, or a reaction to certain medications or cosmetics.

What Are the Signs?

Signs typically include dark brown spots or patches on the skin. In some cases, they may be light patches. They may occur clustered together or spread out. They can in some cases give your skin a rough, uneven texture, especially hyperpigmentation from acne.
