What is face hyperpigmentation? 

Before diving into the various treatments available, let's understand what hyperpigmentation actually is. Simply put, hyperpigmentation involves certain areas of the skin becoming darker than the surrounding skin due to an overproduction of melanin, which is the pigment responsible for creating our skin colour. This overproduction is caused by the alteration of certain cellular mechanisms and can be triggered by various factors such as unprotected sun exposure, hormonal changes, inflammation, genetic predisposition, skin injuries, and the use of photosensitising drugs such as oral contraceptives, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and so on.  

Hyperpigmentation can involve different types of spots based on their origin and distribution on the skin, but often the area of greatest concern is on our face. 

Hyperpigmentation treatments for the face 

Happily, there are several effective treatments available to address hyperpigmentation on the face and to restore a more even complexion.

Depigmentation treatments

Among the most renowned are mesoestetic®’s cosmelan® and dermamelan® cosmetic treatments. These depigmenting methods involve a combination of professional in-cabin procedures and at-home apply-it-yourself maintenance products to achieve optimal results in both the short and long term, with a unique and dual corrective and regulatory action. 

The cosmelan® method is a topical treatment lasting approximately 6 months that combines a single salon session with the at-home treatment necessary to obtain optimum results. For dermamelan®, the treatment consists in a first session in consultation and a home treatment that lasts 4 months. During the initial phase and after treatment at the clinic, the skin can appear reddened and you might feel mild, expected reactions that will disappear after 24-48 hours with the application of the home products recommended by a specialist. 

Chemical peels

In addition to these treatments, chemical peels such as mesoestetic®’s mesopeel® and mesopeel® MD offer an effective multi-acid and proprietary peptide solution with intensive regenerative properties to address hyperpigmentation, exfoliating the skin's outer layer, promoting cell turnover and revealing the fresher, brighter skin underneath.  

As with any treatment of the skin on our face it is important to be aware of any risks. Crucially, all these products and their associated application procedures, based on mesoestetic®’s more than 30 years of leadership and innovation in the field, are certified safe and have proven efficacy underpinned by science supported by patents and excellent clinical and in vitro and ex vivo study results.

How to prevent hyperpigmentation 

Prevention and maintaining skin health are key when it comes to managing hyperpigmentation. Incorporating daily skincare products formulated to target pigmentation irregularities can help prevent new dark spots from forming and protect against further damage for where it is already exists. 

Hyperpigmentation skincare products

melan tran3x gel cream is a depigmenting cream with tranexamic acid for daily use that is specifically designed to target and reduce existing pigmentation while preventing the formation of new dark spots. Likewise, brightening peel booster is a non-oily, renewing and clarifying gel combining glycolic acid and phytic acid that has effective exfoliating and regenerating properties, reducing melanogenic activity for a more even pigmentation. The brightening peel booster significantly improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture and reactivate cell renewal while reducing pigment-based lesions and blemishes.

Meanwhile, mesoprotech® melan 130 pigment control is a tinted water-resistant facial sunscreen with very high photoprotection (SPF 50+) indicated for skin with pigmentary imperfections. Daily use helps enhance skin clarity and luminosity, providing comprehensive protection against hyperpigmentation. 

By incorporating these products into your daily skincare routine, you can effectively manage hyperpigmentation and achieve a brighter, more even complexion over time. 

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin concern that can significantly impact your confidence. However, with the right treatment and adequate preventive measures, you can conquer dark spots and achieve the clear, radiant skin you deserve. 

Remember, like with many things in life, especially with our health, consistency is key when it comes to managing hyperpigmentation. By conscientiously investing in professional treatments and incorporating effective skincare products into your daily routine, you can say goodbye to dark spots and hello to a luminous complexion that seems to shine from within.
