Hyperpigmentation and Discoloration
Hyperpigmentation, Discoloration & Melasma
Are dark spots aging your skin?
Whether you have a few dark spots or patches of darker skin, chances are that they are distracting away from your skin’s beauty and youthful radiance. At Rejuvent, we can help you fade your pigmentation and help you achieve healthier, more radiant, and beautiful skin.
What is fueling your hyperpigmentation?
The sun, heat, and your hormones are most likely the cause of those dark spots and dark patches. Most of the time hyperpigmentation can be a frustrating result of sun exposure and it is often reoccurring and hard to treat. Since you can’t go back in time to apply sun protection the solution is to target the existing damage and fade the sunspots to help return your skin to a brighter and more youthful state.
At Rejuvent, with the right combination of medical-grade skincare, and skin treatments we can treat your skin’s discoloration and pigmentation and minimize skin damage.

“I had Melasma after my second child but that went away as time went by. Now as I am older, my face is developing dark spots that never go away. I came to Rejuvent for Botox and ended up visiting Emily at the spa. She has prescribed me a series of IPLs and my skin is going thru an amazing transformation. My spots are faded or gone and I am a die-hard fan of this treatment now!“

Frequently Asked Questions
Hyperpigmentation occurs when patches of skin become darker in color than the surrounding skin. Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives human skin, hair, and eyes their color, this pigment is produced by cells called melanocytes. When this pigment is overproduced brown spots (age spots, “liver” spots, lentigos) appear. Melasma or chloasma spots are similar in appearance to age spots but are larger areas of darkened skin that appear most often as a result of hormonal changes.
One of the main causes is sun exposure and the inflammatory response produced by UV exposure. As you expose your skin to the sun, the melanocytes cells produce more melanin to protect the skin from UV radiation. As you age, the number of melanocytes decreases, and the remaining melanocytes cells increase helping form the dark spots.
Skin damage also causes hyperpigmentation. This damage can be leftover from acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc. When your skin is injured it reacts by producing an inflammatory response which triggers the defense mechanism in the form of melanin production.
Other causes of hyperpigmentation are medication, allergic reaction, improperly performed skin treatments, and genetics.
Sunspots, age spots, and liver spots – Caused by sun exposure, these small darker areas of skin can appear in any part of your body exposed to the sun.
Melasma or Chloasma – Caused by hormonal changes and sun exposure, these larger patches of darker skin, are common in the face and abdomen.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) – Caused by injury or trauma to the skin such as acne, psoriasis, eczema or a poorly administered skin treatment, these dark and discolored spots can appear in any area.
Freckles – These start appearing during childhood, some freckles fade as we age but sun exposure can darken them.
Everyone can get it. People from any race and skin type can get hyperpigmentation.
