Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces an excess amount of the brown pigment, melanin, giving rise to unwanted brown spots, such as freckles, melasma, age spots or liver spots. These brown spots could arise from excessive sun (ultraviolet light) exposure, hormonal changes due to pregnancy or oral contraceptives and injury to the skin caused by acne, burns, etc.
Freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect he skin from overexposure. The usual result of this process is skin tanning, which tends to darken areas that are already hyperpigmented. Wearing a sunscreen is a must. The sunscreen must be “broad spectrum” (i.e. it blocks both UVA and UVB). A single day of excess sun can undo months of treatment.
