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
