Dr. Wright’s Tip
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin caused by increased melanin. Melanin is a class of pigment responsible for producing the colors you are made of – such as the eyes, skin and hair. As we age, melanocyte distribution becomes less diffuse and its regulation less controlled by the body. Hyperpigmentation may be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries. People with darker Asian, Mediterranean or African skin tones are also more prone to get hyperpigmentation. Melasma is a condition that is common in women, especially pregnant women and those who are taking oral or patch contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy medications. It is a tan or dark discoloration on the skin. These conditions can be treated by using my topical skincare gel, RADIANCE. Using RADIANCE daily 1-2 times a day with a good sunscreen will help to keep the pigmentation at bay. RADIANCE keeps your skin levels even which helps keep you from getting new hyperpigmentation. It helps to fade away unwanted discoloration and aging and helps to improve the skin’s radiance by exfoliating damaged cells leaving your skin significantly softer, even-toned and younger looking. It also helps correct environmental skin damage and create clear pores.
