Pigment changes on the skin can have various causes (hyperpigmentation from acne, melasma, sun damage, etc). We specialize in determining the cause and crafting the best treatment for you.
You might be wondering about spot treatment for dark spots on your face, hands, and body. Dark spots happen when the skin generates too much melanin, the natural brown pigment that gives our skin color. The precise causes of dark spots include nutritional inadequacies, aging, excessive sun exposure, or acne scars. However, exposure to the sun is the main cause of dark spots.
Your skin’s natural response to exposure to the sun is the production of melanin, which aids in preventing UV radiation from further harming our DNA and skin. This is frequently the reason why our skin tans when we spend a lot of time in the sun. Additionally, it explains why those with deeper skin tones are less likely to burn from the sun than those with fair skin. The production of melanin can occasionally rise unevenly due to the sun. Dark spots form when this extra melanin collects and seeps into the spaces between skin cells.
Dark patches are, in essence, the outcome of hyperpigmentation. The majority of dark spots, like age or sunspots, may be avoided by wearing the right SPF and avoiding the sun. However, to rule out skin cancer, it’s advisable to see a board-certified dermatologist if you find a new lesion that changes in size or color. Anything unusual should be investigated, especially if you have pale skin or a family history of skin cancer. To ensure that nothing worrisome goes overlooked, routine skin examinations are advised.
