Treatments for Hyperpigmentation of the Skin
Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a very common problem for many people. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin caused by increased melanin. There are many reasons why hyperpigmentation occurs from sun damage, inflammation, skin injuries to certain skin disorders. Darker skin types are also more prone to hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation can be diffuse or local and can occur anywhere on the body. There are a number of diseases and conditions associated with hyperpigmentation including Addison’s disease, melasma, celiac disease and many more.
At BC Laser and SkinCare Clinic our treatment options for hyperpigmentation are available to our clients in Vancouver, Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Coquitlam and Delta, from our Surrey Clinic.
