Hyperpigmentation is commonly a dark area, or patches of skin on the face that have increased melanin production. Other names for hyperpigmentation are melasma or age spots.
What is NOT hyperpigmentation
Freckles and birth marks that we usually have from birth.
How do we get Hyperpigmentation
- UV exposure
- Trauma such as breakouts

When speaking with you, one of the first things we’ll explore is the cause. For example, hyperpigmentation caused by UV exposure. One quick win is to ensure we are all wearing sun protection daily. If we use a sun bed, this would need to stop.
Melasma or (mask of pregnancy) – wearing an SPF throughout pregnancy is important, and post-pregnancy we can address the pigmentation through skin treatments. Melasma can reduce over time as our hormones regulate again, but we can help to speed up the process and help with stubborn hyperpigmentation with products and treatments.
Injury or trauma – Usually caused by breakouts can be called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, the best thing is to limit the trauma (stop picking) and reduce breakout activity with a good skincare routine. We have other products in our Dermalogica line that will help.
