More information about pigment changes

When the body produces too much or too little melanin, it can cause changes in pigment. These changes can appear as brown spots, sun spots, moles, melasma, or other skin patches that appear light or darker than normal. 

Areas of the skin that are affected by changes in pigment can have a variety of causes, associated symptoms, and treatments. Pigmentation disorders and birthmarks affect many people. Most of the time, changes to the skin pigment are harmless, but it can also indicate more serious conditions and illnesses. 

Hyperpigmentation, or a change in the darkness of the area of the skin, can cause many patients to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. It can occur in small areas or over the entire body. 

Our team at Skincredible Dermatology offers several treatments and procedures to improve the appearance of dark spots, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation. The use of lasers and skin resurfacing is commonly prescribed to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented skin.
