More about hyperpigmentation

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Pigment is present in every skin type. Hyperpigmentation is an increase in pigment, which can manifest itself in pigment spots. There are different forms of hyperpigmentation, namely congenital or acquired (onset later).

The most common pigment disorders are:

  • Lentigo solaris (age spots)
  • Melasma (pregnancy mask)
  • Ephelides (freckles)
  • Acanthosis nigricans

How does hyperpigmentation occur?

The main causes for the development of hyperpigmentation are: exposure to the sun, skin aging, inflammation of the skin (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), hormonal fluctuations (for example due to pregnancy or the pill) and genetic predisposition.

Treat hyperpigmentation

The treatment options vary from laser therapy, microneedling to various peels and home products. You can also undergo the Cosmelan treatment at Clinique Elixir. Do you want an even skin complexion and are you curious which treatment suits your skin type? Then contact one of our skin therapists for customized advice.

Skin scan and intake

During the first consultation, the nature of your complaint will be discussed with the practitioner, so that a tailor-made treatment plan can be made. A good treatment plan starts with a skin analysis with the Observ520 skin scanner. The skin therapist can provide a detailed skin analysis about the deeper layers of the skin. You will also receive advice on products that you use at home to support and optimize the treatment. The results of the scan are stored and compared so that we can monitor the progress of the treatment.
