What Are Hyperpigmentation and Melasma?
Hyperpigmentation occurs when dark patches of skin show up on the body, and melasma is one of the most common types. Melasma, also called chloasma, are tan or brown patches that typically occur symmetrically over the brow, nose, cheeks, or upper lip. Melasma is found more often in women and may be caused by sun damage or hormonal changes, such as those triggered by menopause and pregnancy. Individuals with darker skin types are more prone to melasma than those who have lighter complexions. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams treats melasma and hyperpigmentation issues regularly in Bedford, TX. He can provide numerous remedies that may help reduce the visibility of the condition. Call Essential Dermatology Group to schedule an appointment with him today.
How Are Hyperpigmentation and Melasma Treated?
There are numerous alternatives for the treatment of melasma and hyperpigmentation. First, there are a variety of topical compound creams, gels, or lotions that can be given to help expedite skin lightening. Second, there are aesthetic procedures, including chemical peels and skin care products. Another option is intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, which destroys excess melanin and encourages the body to produce new skin cells. Unlike lasers that utilize focused lighting, IPL is versatile broadband light so the recovery period is shorter. Improvements are normally long-lasting when the patient implements good sun protection and upkeep.
