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).
- Exposure to certain substances such as perfumes or medications.
- Among others.
