Hyperpigmentation, characterized by dark spots and uneven skin tone, can be a significant concern for many. At Cres, we understand the impact of hyperpigmentation and offer non-invasive, advanced treatments to restore harmony and balance to your skin tone.

Understanding Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition characterized by the darkening of certain areas of the skin. This darkening occurs due to an excess production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of skin, hair, and eyes. Melanin is produced by melanocytes, which are cells in the skin.


  • Also known as butterfly rash, because it is symmetrical on both sides.

  • Characterized by brown or grayish-brown patches.

  • On the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip.

  • More common in women with darker skin tones.

  • Those that appear during pregnancy are called chloasma.

Solar Lentigines

  • Formed due to prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays.

  • Color: Typically tan, brown, or black.

  • Size: Ranging from a few millimeters to a centimeter.

  • Location: Commonly found on skin areas regularly exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, arms, shoulders, and upper back.

  • Flat Shape: These spots are generally flat and have a uniform color.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

The darkening of the skin that occurs after an injury or wound has healed. This is due to an overproduction of melanin in the skin during the inflammatory process.

  • Color: PIH can appear pink, red, brown, or black, depending on your skin tone and the severity of the inflammation.

  • Causes: It can be caused by acne, burns, cuts, insect bites, or aggressive treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy.

  • Duration: PIH can last from a few months to years, depending on the severity and care taken.

  • Prevention and Treatment: To prevent PIH, avoid picking at skin, use gentle skincare products, and protect your skin from the sun. Treatments for PIH include lightening agents like hydroquinone, retinoids, vitamin C, chemical peels, and in severe cases, laser therapy.

  • Management Tips: Use a consistent skincare routine with gentle exfoliation and hydration, avoid harsh treatments, and use sunscreen regularly to prevent further darkening.


  • Seen in skin areas frequently exposed to sunlight, such as the face, arms, and shoulders.

  • Color: Typically tan, light brown, or reddish-brown. The color may vary due to factors like sun exposure and genetics.

  • Size: Usually small.

  • Number: The quantity of freckles can vary and may increase with sun exposure.

  • Genetic Influence: The tendency to develop freckles is often influenced by genetics.

  • People with fair skin and red or blond hair are more prone to developing freckles.

Various factors can trigger hyperpigmentation:

  1. Sun Exposure: The most common cause of hyperpigmentation is sun exposure. UV rays from the sun stimulate the production of melanin as a natural defense to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

  2. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal influences are a significant cause of hyperpigmentation. Melasma, a form of hyperpigmentation, is often associated with pregnancy (sometimes called the "mask of pregnancy") and the use of birth control pills, which change hormone levels.

  3. Inflammation: Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) occurs following skin injury or inflammation. Common causes include acne, burns, cuts, or certain skin-care treatments. The skin responds to this injury by producing more melanin.

  4. Certain Medications: Some medications can increase skin pigmentation, including certain chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, antimalarials, anti-seizure drugs, and hormonal medications.

  5. Medical Conditions: Certain diseases and health conditions, such as Addison's disease and other adrenal gland disorders, can increase melanin production.

  6. Genetics: Some people are more prone to hyperpigmentation due to their genetic makeup.

  7. Age: As people age, hyperpigmentation can occur due to a combination of sun exposure and a decrease in the skin's ability to regenerate.
