aka known brown spots

Hyperpigmentation refers to the discoloration caused by deposits of melanin that appear as stubborn brown spots.  Unfortunately, when the skin has been     exposed to harsh components such as, sun and birth control pills, the normal skin production        becomes impaired. This results in an over         abundance of this melanin in    certain areas of the face. This is the toughest skin problem that many  people face.    Hormone fluctuations have a great  influence on the skin. Sun sensitizing medications and pregnancy contributes to some of this       blotchiness.  Although there is hope in combating this skin    problem, it does require patience and time.  The average person begins to see results  after about 3 to 6 months, or longer, depending on depth of the pigmentation. This is why one must have 100% sun protection at all times and maintain skin care treatments that  will enhance brighter  looking skin.

Skin Care Tips

  • Wear a hat or visor for extra protection.
    Do not rely on sunscreen only
  • Use sunscreen with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. Apply 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.   Reapply every hour if in direct sun. 
  • Eat a healthy diet to boost the immunity system.
  • Get facials regularly– At PSC the facial may be customized to focus on brightening the skin.

Be very patient! Chances are these spots have been hidden under the skin and have surfaced suddenly over night
