Age Spots & Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is not only a prevalent condition, it’s one that can also be particularly stubborn to treat. It affects men and women of all ethnic groups, and features itself as areas of darkened skin. Directly caused by either overactive melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing melanin, or an overproduction of the melanocytes themselves, hyperpigmentation presents no medical threat. However, it can sometimes be a symptom of disease or illness.
What’s more, individuals with facial hyperpigmentation may become so concerned with the aesthetic implications of the condition that it can lead to depression and anxiety. For this reason, md cosmetic feels the condition deserves serious attention, including a diligent skin analysis coupled with an often multi-faceted approach to treatment.
