How Do I Know If I Have Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation can appear in a few different forms, including:
- Melasma: Also called “the mask of pregnancy,” melasma appears as small patches of brown or gray skin on the cheeks and nose.
- Similar in appearance to freckles, sunspots appear as brown patches of skin caused by excess sun exposure without protection like SPF.
- Post-inflammatory pigmentation. This darkening of the skin occurs following an injury like a burn or severe inflammation.
If you believe you have hyperpigmentation and are interested in seeking treatment, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Siddiqui and the expert medical team at La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic. We’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the beautiful, even skin you can be proud of.
