Shun the Sun and Blue Light.

First, what is it?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in the production of melanin, the substance that gives your skin its color. There are a wide range of causes (and some medical conditions) which may boost your body's production of melanin:

  • Excessive or repeated sun and Blue Light exposure.

  • Aggressive skin treatments.

  • Hot working environments.

  • Acne or skin injury.

  • Reaction to chemicals and fragrances.

  • Genetics.

  • Hormonal changes, often caused by pregnancy.

  • Endocrine diseases such as Addison's disease.

  • Certain medications such as antibiotics, anti-seizure drugs and hormone treatments.

Skin and Silhouette offers a variety of treatments options and products to combat hyperpigmentation. Book a Consultation with our Medical Esthetician, she can detect what type of hyperpigmentation you have and offer effective treatment options to help you reach your goals.

Wearing sunscreen can help prevent certain types of Hyperpigmentation and is a necessary component of any treatment's aftercare plans. Irreversible damage may occur when treated areas are exposed to sun and/or blue light. If you are adverse to wearing Sunscreen, then treatment isn't for you.
