Hyperpigmentation is a condition that affects many women and it can be caused by factors like acne scarring or sun damage. Some women get the so-called mask of pregnancy, which is a condition that creates dark spots on the skin when they are expecting. Women can get also dark spots, or melasma, which can be triggered by hormone imbalances and sun exposure. There is no one thing that can prevent hyperpigmentation, but sunscreen does help. Here are our other solutions.
If you’re ready to lighten your skin and get rid of the nasty brown spots, make an appointment for microdermabrasion. The results will last several months and the procedure is minimally invasive. We particularly like the treatment offered at Epiderma. It combines the procedure with a chemical peel by Vivier and restores your skin’s glow quickly.
Skin that is affected by hyperpigmentation needs to be treated with specific products. Retinol, which exfoliates the skin at night in order to decrease the appearance of brown spots is an option. Skinceuticals offers a retinol treatment with different levels of intensity and is a good option. We recently tested the French skincare line, Universkin. The line uses custom serums and treatments with active ingredients to meet the needs of your skin. Get a diagnosis at one of the institutes offering the range, such as Espace MédIME, in Montreal. We also love Vivier, which offers products that treat hyperpigmentation. The popular Quebec line is available at retailers across North America.

LED Light Treatment
If you have sensitive skin, you may want to look at LED light treatments. Bella Clinic in Montreal was one of the first to pioneer in this field, with its MAX machine, a light treatment that helps restore glow to the skin. The MAX machine is available across Canada, and you can easily find a location in your area to get this treatment.
In any case, seek advice from a dermatologist or your skin care technician. They will answer your questions and advise you on the best treatment according to your skin type.
