Sunny days are around the corner. Protect yourself from hyperpigmentation.

Finally, some sun! While you may just want to peel off the layers and start soaking up those solar rays after such a long, rough winter — remember to protect yourself. The sun can be incredibly damaging to the skin and is the leading cause of hyperpigmentation, also commonly referred to as simply “sun spots.”

Hyperpigmentation is a discoloring and darkening of the skin due to an increase in melanin and can occur anywhere, from your face to your feet and every place in between. While the sun is the #1 culprit, other factors can contribute to hyperpigmentation.

The top five causes of hyperpigmentation include:

  • Sun damage
  • Genetics
  • Skin inflammation
  • Medication
  • Hormone changes

At RTH, we offer a wide variety of skin care treatments that can correct hyperpigmentation including chemical peelslaser resurfacing and other soothing and color correcting skin treatments. While there are many options to correct sun spots, keeping your skin healthy and beautiful begins with preventing sun damage. We always encourage using ample SPF protection when you’re out enjoying the sun.
