If you’re like most men and women in Southern California, sun exposure is frequent and practically sought after, whether it’s in the tanning bed or at the beach. And even if you don’t frequent the tanning salons or the shores of SoCal, you’re probably still at risk for hyperpigmentation – a discoloration of the skin that produces small dark spots on the face.
Some men and women have only slight hyperpigmentation, such as small spots or discolorations near the eyes, mouth, or cheeks. These types of mild discolorations are often brown in appearance, therefore commonly called “brown spots.” They can range from a faint, translucent brown to a darker, opaque brown – and everything in between – and can often require the expertise of a cosmetic surgeon in Inland Empire.
For men and women with more pronounced hyperpigmentation, the spots can cover larger areas such as the entire forehead or a large part of the cheek. People with these kinds of discolorations often feel challenged in ways to remove or cover up their uneven skin tone.
Hyperpigmentation is a result of an over-production melatonin as Everyday Health is reporting. Many cosmetic surgeons in Inland Empire agree that an over-production of melatonin is probably a result of too much sun exposure, and your skin is merely trying to adapt and shield itself from the continual sun exposure. However, some men and especially women report hyperpigmenation as a result of medicines, hormones, or changes in environment.
Fortunately, hyperpigmentation is not dangerous and there are options for helping to lighten and possibly remove spots all together.
