What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is the medical term for patches of skin that are darker than your normal skin tone. These patches or "spots" are usually harmless and painless, but most people find them unappealing. There are simple skin bleaching creams and gels which can lighten these areas; you should talk to your doctor about which treatment would best suit your particular problem.

Learn more about what it is and how it's treated!

How is it caused?
Your skin contains a brown pigment called melanin. The amount of melanin in your skin determines your actual skin color. When produced in excess, either by exposure to the sun or as a result of many other factors, it forms a concentrated deposit that results in darker patches.

What kind of hyperpigmentation do I have?
There are many kinds of hyperpigmentation, usually identified by what causes them and how they appear on your skin. These are the most common ones:

These are small brown or tan spots most common in children and individuals with blue eyes, red hair or fair skin. They occur in areas exposed to the sun and increase in both number and intensity with prolonged exposure.

This type looks like irregular streaks, spots or patches that appear in a symmetrical pattern on your cheeks, nose and upper lip, or on the neck, chin and around the eyes. Melasma is most commonly a result of hormonal changes during the aging process (age spots) or sun exposure, but can also occur during pregnancy or in women taking birth control pills.

Solar lentigines
Also caused by the sun, these round, brown spots can take years to develop and can be quite dark (sometimes called "beauty" spots). They appear mostly on areas exposed to light, such as the face, back, chest, arms and hands.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
After certain acute illnesses such as chicken pox, or with chronic skin problems like eczema and acne, the skin sometimes produces excess pigmentation of this type. Also, people with dark skin can develop this hyperpigmentation from sunburn.

Certain medicines, such as birth control pills and some antibiotics, can cause hyperpigmentation in combination with sun exposure. Ask your doctor if your medication drug may present this problem.

Laser surgery treatment, hair transplants
and chemical peels
If you plan to have any of the above done, you may want to use a treatment for hyperpigmentation before and after the procedure, to prevent the possibility of skin darkening. Laser treatment can be for tattoo removal or skin resurfacing.

Cosmetics and nutrition
Certain cosmetics, perfumes and even foods such as celery, carrots, and limes containing bergamot oil, can cause a darkening of your skin when you are exposed to sun.

What's the best way to treat hyperpigmentation?
There are many skin bleaching creams and gels available to help fade hyperpigmentation spots. For example, Ultraquin and NeoStrata HQ products contain hydroquinone, an effective skin bleaching agent for gradual lightening of hyperpigmented skin.

About NeoStrata Brand

How often do I use these products?

It is usually recommended that you apply a small amount of Ultraquin or NeoStrata HQ both morning and night on the affected areas, or as directed by your physician. Read product package inserts for more detailed instructions on proper use.

When will I see results?
It is important to wait the proper amount of time for results, so don't get discouraged and give up! Hyperpigmentation treatment is a gradual process that requires from 8 to 12 weeks to work effectively. However, results can appear quickly, depending on the depth of pigmentation.

What else should I know?
In general, if you have hyperpigmentation you should avoid the sun whenever possible because exposure to the sun can worsen the problem. In addition, prolonged exposure to the sun can limit the ability of your treatment to be effective. Apply a good sunscreen after using Ultraquin or NeoStrata HQ - this will not only help your treatment work better and faster, it will also help reduce the chances of the spots re-appearing.

Keep these in mind when you go out
  Always use sunscreen SPF 30 on your face, hands and exposed areas. Apply it routinely in the morning, and repeat as necessary during the day according to your outdoor activities.
  Avoid tanning and prolonged exposure to the sun.

Wear a hat and protective clothing when outside.

  Remember that certain medicines and cosmetics can cause hyperpigmentation during exposure to the sun.

Will the problem come back?
As noted above, hyperpigmentation can be caused by many different things, and particularly by sun exposure. Spots can re-occur and should be treated again as necessary. Of course, you can also use Ultraquin or NeoStrata HQ to avoid developing hyperpigmentation.
