spots and hyperpigmentation

Treatments to improve the appearance of blemishes on the skin.

Blemishes on the skin affect 90% of white people over 50 years.

Skin color is normally defined by a person's phototype and by their exposure to the sun. The areas frequently exposed to the sun are darker than the hidden areas.

Pigmentation problems in the skin are related to a malfunction of melanin, which causes hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or depigmentation of the skin (white spots).

There may be several reasons, including:

  • Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays.
  • Aging of cells. Spots produced naturally with age.
  • Hormonal changes (Pregnancy, or oral contraceptives).
  • Burns.
  • Exposure to certain substances such as perfumes or medications.
  • Among others.
