What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Our skin is comprised of many layers. When excess melanin creates deposits under the lower epidermis layer, hyperpigmentation or darker patches can appear. Passive Pigmentation can occur due to hormonal imbalances during pregnancy, puberty, contraceptive use and menopause when our melanin producing hormones can become overactive. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation or PIH is the result of trauma to the skin.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Skin trauma can occur when the layers of the skin become damaged due to irritation, burning and bruising after skin lifting after an improper waxing process. Melanocyte cells become stimulated when our skin becomes distressed and send melanin to the surface of the skin, between the epidermis and the dermis layers. Careful, correct techniques and product knowledge can ensure that these avoidable issues do not occur.
