Hyperpigmentation is the excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its dominant color. Skin cells called melanocytes produce melanin. There are multiple conditions that can alter the production of melanin in your body.

The primary cause of hyperpigmentation is excessive sun exposure, which can also cause an increase in melanin.

A second cause of hyperpigmentation is pregnancy changes to your hormone levels for some women.

A third cause of hyperpigmentation are some medications, including certain chemotherapy drugs that can cause hyperpigmentation as a side effect.

A fourth cause of hyperpigmentation is the rare endocrine disease known as Addison’s disease.

There are 3 main types of hyperpigmentation:

  • Melasma – Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation resulting from hormonal changes in your body. Melasma is more commonly seen in women than in men. It worsened this type of pigmentation, with high levels of ultraviolet rays or intense heat. Sun exposure, heat, light, and hormones worsen this type of hyperpigmentation. Melasma sometimes produces a pattern on the face most often affecting the forehead, cheeks, or upper lip. Melasma can be caused by an increase in the hormones estrogen and progesterone, as seen in pregnant women. Other causes include ultraviolet, visible light, or infrared radiation, anti-seizure medications, phototoxic reactions from makeup, skincare products, and soaps. At Sandia Skin + Face, we treat melasma using combination therapy, which typically includes prescription topicals, and Halo and Moxi lasers. Many lasers can make melasma worse, so it is important to go to providers experienced in treating melasma. Melasma is a disease process that is managed but not cured. A good skin care routine will maintain the results of the laser treatments longer.
  • Age Spots – Most people refer to hyperpigmentation as either age spots, liver spots, sun damage, or melasma. Our skin is producing more melanin (pigmentation) as we age. Our skin produces additional melanin as a response to damage to the skin. Wearing a mineral SPF (as opposed to chemical spf’s), avoiding overexposure to the sun, using topical melanocyte suppressant prescription medication, along with using topical antioxidants, can help minimize age spots. In-office treatments including the Halo, Moxi, or BBL lasers can treat pigmentation efficiently with minimal or no downtime. Exfoliating your skin with Chemical Peels or microdermabrasion, such as a Diamond Glow can remove the top layers of your skin, revealing fresh skin layers.
  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) – PIH results from injury to your skin, often from acne. Often, darker skin is more prone to PIH than lighter, more sun-sensitive skin. PIH can occur in all skin types, but more commonly effects pigmented skin types such as those seen in with Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asians, Native populations, and Pacific Island descent. Skin injury causes an excess of melanin (pigmentation) to form. When inflammatory skin damage occurs, we recommend starting with a skin lightener like Skin Medica’s Lytera or their Even & Correct line and Retinol. These will help stop the overproduction of pigmentation, start sloughing off the layers of darker discoloration, and also lighten your skin. You may need to follow up with a series of Moxi lasers or BBL (Broad Band Light) treatments which will help even your skin complexion and reduce hyperpigmentation.

If topical solutions aren’t the Hyperpigmentation solution that works for you, you may need other options to banish discoloration, such as Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, a Diamond Glow facial, Dermabrasion, or a Laser Resurfacing procedure.

  • Chemical Peel – A chemical peels can help, if the related the hyperpigmentation to sun exposure.
  • Laser Therapy – We can use Laser light treatment for treating melasma by using a broad spectrum of light to generate heat which targets and removes pigment. We also use the Halo laser and the Moxi laser to remove age spots and melasma.
  • Full Field Laser Resurfacing – We use Laser Resurfacing, such as CO2 and Erbium yag lasers to treat age spots.
  • BBL Laser – We use our BBL (broad band light) Laser to treat age spots.
  • Sciton Halo Laser & Moxi Laser Treatment – We use our Halo and Moxi Lasers to treat Melasma and any type of hyperpigmentation. These two lasers are safe on all skin types.
  • Retinols – Retinols chemically exfoliate your skin and help block the receptors that regulate how much pigment comes out of your skin. In addition, retinols can lighten your skin and improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. Retinols make other prescription topical medications for hyperpigmentation work better when used together.
  • Prescription Medications – Depending on the root cause of your hyperpigmentation, there are some medications that can be prescribed by a Nurse Practitioner/medical provider.
