Try our effective treatments for hyperpigmentation today.
Brown or greyish spots and patches in appearance, is a skin concern primarily found in adult women between the ages of 20 and 40. It can affect men as well, and is usually more pronounced in the summer months. It is not contagious or a disease, but it can be unpleasant and upsetting type of hyperpigmentation for the sufferer. Melasma can occur on various areas of the body, especially on visible areas like the cheeks, nose and forehead. It can also be triggered by hormonal imbalances, hence why those who are pregnant, on the contraceptive pill or who are diagnosed with polycystic ovaries (POCS) are more prone to this type of pigmentation.
It is important to note that melasma is difficult to treat, and there is no real ‘cure’ per se. However, there are many different treatments available which help to suppress the pigmentation and reduce its appearance. The best solution is to not delay treatment for achieving best results.
