What causes dark spots and Hyperpigmentation?

May 7, 2021

Hyperpigmentation and dark spots are the result of a local overproduction of melanin. Melanin is a dark brown to black pigment that is responsible for our skin color and also for giving us a summer tan. When melanin is overproduced in certain areas, it results in irregular skin coloration and dark spots. This can be triggered by exposure to sunlight,☀️ hormonal changes (e.g. pregnancy), the normal skin aging process as well as injuries or inflammation of the skin. You can reduce hyperpigmentation with the help of targeted skincare products, chemical peels or laser therapy.
