Collection: Hyper Pigmentation

Dr Rashel Hyper Pigmentation is a common skin condition characterized by the darkening of certain areas of the skin compared to the surrounding skin tone. It occurs due to an overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for giving color to the skin, hair, and eyes.

There are different types of Dr Rashel Hyper Pigmentation  , including:

Sunspots or Solar Lentigines:

These are dark spots that appear on the skin due to prolonged exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.

They are found on areas that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms.


This type of Hyper Pigmentation often occurs as a result of hormonal changes,

such as during pregnancy or while taking hormonal medications.

Melasma appears as dark, irregular patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH):

This condition develops after skin inflammation or injury, such as acne, burns, cuts, or rashes. The affected area becomes darker than the surrounding skin as a part of the healing process.

Age Spots:

Also known as liver spots or lentigines, age spots are similar to sunspots and are more common in older individuals.

Hyperpigmentation is generally harmless and does not cause any physical discomfort, but it can be a cosmetic concern for some individuals. It can affect people of all skin types and colors, though it tends to be more noticeable in individuals with lighter skin tones.

Prevention and Treatment:

  1. Sun Protection: One of the best ways to prevent hyperpigmentation is by protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Use sunscreen with a high SPF, wear protective clothing, and avoid prolonged sun exposure, especially during peak hours.

  2. Topical Treatments: Over-the-counter and prescription creams or serums containing ingredients like hydroquinone, retinoids, kojic acid, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), and vitamin C may help fade hyperpigmentation and even out skin tone.

  3. Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion: These procedures involve exfoliating the skin to remove the outer layer and encourage the growth of new, evenly pigmented skin.

  4. Laser Therapy: Certain laser treatments can target and break down excess melanin in the skin, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation.

  5. Cryotherapy: This involves using extreme cold to destroy excess melanin-producing cells.
