About the treatment

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Skin Pigmentation is caused by melanin – a pigment in your body that gives your skin, eyes and hair its colour. When you have an imbalance in melanin levels this is when skin pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation can occur.

As one of the most problematic skin conditions to treat, DYU Aesthetics offers the most effective pigmentation treatments in the world to help target and reduce discolouration.

Melasma vs Hyperpigmentation – What's the difference?

Being an umbrella term used for various conditions, hyperpigmentation is where one patch of skin becomes darker than the surrounding skin. The leading cause for hyperpigmentation is sun exposure, alongside other factors such as acne scarring, medications or inflammation.

Melasma is a specific type of hyperpigmentation that is caused by hormonal changes within the body. These darker patches of skin are commonly found in women and target the face, on a person's chin, cheeks, nose, upper lip or other cranial areas.

What causes Hyperpigmentation?

Changes to the melanin levels in your skin can occur for a variety of reasons and may be down to hormonal changes, age, over exposure to the sun, damage to the skin, or purely down to your genetics. Melasma can be caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disease, sun exposure and much more.

Importance of Sun Protection: The harmful effects of solar radiation are well-known, and yet people still take risks without proper protection. The various types of hyperpigmentation, including melasma, are triggered by prolonged exposure to the sun, and once the damage has been done, it's too late.

We can't stress the importance of wearing proper clothing and applying sunscreen to prevent these unsightly conditions from occurring in the future.
