Yes, freckles are cute, but larger brown spots and patches of darker skin mean you’re using more and more concealer and buying creams that may not solve the problem.
What Causes Dark Spots and Brown Patches?
Anyone who has spent time in the sun can attest to how quickly skin pigmentation can appear and how stubborn it can be to fade. Especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors int the elements.
What’s amazing about pigmentation is it’s your skin’s response to damage caused by inflammation, sun exposure, or other environmental stressors, all of which cause the cells to produce more melanin to protect themselves. Melanin is your skin’s way of producing its own shade! Now you know why sunscreen is so important in preventing this condition.
For women, changes in estrogen levels and certain medications also play a role in hyperpigmentation. So the first step is to determine if there is an underlying cause and address that too.

How Can You Fade Skin Pigmentation?
At Lutetia Clinic, there are many options to treat this common skin complaint. Though the treatment depends on the type of spots our dermatologist sees on your face and what exactly is causing them. They may recommend a peel, which peels off dead skin cells and sun-damaged skin. This can often fade sun spots significantly. Laser rejuvenation is another option for hyperpigmentation. The energy from a laser can break up pools of melanin below the skin’s surface. Sometimes our skin specialists recommend a combination of treatments to get the best results.
