Is your skin plagued by stubborn, annoying spots or patches of discolouration that just won’t fade? You’re not alone. Millions of women suffer from hyperpigmentation, which essentially is an excess production of melanin in the skin. Brown, red or pink, small or large, clustered or diffuse, hyperpigmentation can occur anywhere. Any part of the skin that is darker than the rest is hyperpigmented. While it can be corrected – it takes diligent use of the right products and time to see results. The best thing you can do to prevent it is to wear SPF daily, since the sun is a major culprit. It’s not uncommon for the skin above the upper lip to become dark - it actually changes the skin tone and in most cases it’s not hair that’s causing the darkness. Waxing and threading the upper lip can cause trauma to the skin leading to hyperpigmentation. An increase in hormones can also cause melasma or hyperpigmentation. Since the sun and tanning is a major culprit of discoloured skin, tanning is another reason why hyperpigmentation is on the rise. Treatments for this include peels, micro needling with serums or tissue growth factors, topicals and cosmeceuticals.
