Article by Sherrill Daltiz · Mar 28, 2023

Have you noticed dark patches on your skin? It’s possible that you’re dealing with hyperpigmentation, a common skin condition that affects many individuals, especially those living in areas with high sun exposure. The good news is, it can be treated. In this blog post, we’ll shed some light on “what is hyperpigmentation?”, what causes it, and how The Brow & Skin Studio can help you achieve clearer, brighter skin.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a condition where the skin produces an excess amount of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin colour. This results in dark patches or spots on the skin. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, sun exposure, hormonal changes, and certain medications.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

How Can I Treat Hyperpigmentation?

Did you know that often what we see on the skin, is only about 40% of the problem? The other 60% lies beneath your skin.

At Brow & Skin Studio, we use the latest technology to help us analyze your skin and develop personalized treatment plans. The Observ skin analysis system is a powerful tool that allows us to see what’s going on beneath the surface of your skin. This advanced technology uses a special camera to take high-resolution images of your skin, allowing us to see things like sun damage, pigmentation, and wrinkles that may not be visible to the naked eye. By using the Observ system, we can identify the root causes of your skin concerns and develop targeted treatments that address your unique needs. If you’re looking for customised skincare solutions, an Observ skin analysis is a great place to start – get in touch with Sherril to find out more about Observ.

From there, we offer a range of treatments to will specifically target the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment. This professional-grade treatment is the gold standard when it comes to treating hyperpigmentation, effectively targeting the appearance of dark spots and evening out your skin tone.

This treatment works by inhibiting the production of melanin, which is the pigment responsible for dark spots and uneven skin tone. Cosmelan achieves this by using a combination of powerful depigmenting agents that are applied topically to the skin. These agents work by breaking down existing melanin in the skin while also inhibiting the enzymes that produce new melanin. The result is a reduction in hyperpigmentation, improved skin tone and texture, and a brighter and more even complexion.

Cosmelan is a safe and effective treatment that delivers noticeable results in a single session, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to address hyperpigmentation and achieve a more radiant and youthful-looking complexion.

What is the Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment Process?

At The Brow & Skin Studio, we begin with an initial consultation with our licensed therapist, who will evaluate your skin type and determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.

The process itself is two-step, with the first step done in-clinic: first, a mask is applied to your skin, which is left on for several hours. This mask helps to reduce the production of melanin and stimulate cell renewal.

The second step is done at home: you will be given instructions on how to care for your skin in the days following the treatment, which may include avoiding direct sunlight and using a specific skincare regimen.

Over the next few days, you may experience peeling and some redness, which is normal and should subside within 1 to 2 weeks. The full benefits of Cosmelan can typically be seen within 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, with continued improvement over time.
