Pigmentation Spots


There are different types of pigmentation spots.

Whether it's melasma (hormonal), hyperpigmentation (post-inflammatory), or solar lentigo (also known as brown spots), they appear on the areas most exposed to the sun (face, neck, décolleté, hands, and arms). Certain areas can no longer effectively protect us from UV rays from the sun and blue light from our screens, so these spots start to appear.

Improve and Diminish

The good news is that it is possible to prevent their appearance and even diminish them.

Prevention and Procedures

The best way to prevent the appearance of these brown spots is to avoid the sun or any sources of blue light. Specifically, this means protecting our skin by applying high SPF sunscreens (30 or higher) in both winter and summer.

It is also important to reapply sunscreen multiple times throughout the day (ideally every 2 hours). Each unprotected exposure to rays can darken these spots even further.

After a proper evaluation, we can establish a skincare plan with you to help prevent their appearance and recommend certain procedures, depending on the case, to improve their appearance.
