 What is Hyperpigmentation?

Most commonly seen in people with darker skin, hyperpigmentation is seen in small areas of skin and caused by the increased production of melanin. 

What is Photodamage?

Photodamage is damage to the skin caused by U.V rays regardless of if you intentionally expose yourself to the sun or not. It can be seen in different ways such as freckles, age spots and uneven skin tone.

What is Melasma?

Melasma is a common skin problem when brown patches appear on areas of the skin. Most often seen on the forehead, cheeks and chin, however light to dark brown pigmentation can be seen on all areas of the face. 

What is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

Often seen after a trauma to the skin, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) is the skin’s natural response to inflammation. Dark marks or discolored spots on the skin are left behind after common causes such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
