Hyperpigmentation is a common, often harmless condition where patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. While harmless, this condition often brings a feeling of unhappiness with the appearance and can make you feel less confident.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can have many causes. Age, sun exposure, acne or hormonal changes can cause dark spots to develop. As we age, skin that was damaged from the sun will begin to become more noticeable in the form of small dark patches, usually on the hands and face. Freckles or other darkened skin patches become much darker when exposed to the sun’s rays. Melasma are similar in appearance to age spots, but are the result of hormonal changes. These hormonal shifts are often present during pregnancy, and can trigger overproduction of melanin. Women who take birth control pills can also experience melasma. Acne scars can also darken in the sun.

How to Prevent Hyperpigmentation

Applying sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days, can help prevent hyperpigmentation. Sunscreen of an SPF of 30 or higher should be labeled as broad spectrum, so it is effective at blocking both UVA and UVB rays. It is also important to avoid picking at the skin if you have acne or any other spots or scabs.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
