    What is hyperpigmentation?

    Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that's produced to protect against harsh UV rays, is produced in the skin.

    Why should I care?

    Age/sun spots

    Also called liver spots and solar lentigines — are small dark areas on your skin. They usually appear on the body areas most exposed to the sun.


    Melasma can form on the skin for several reasons such as, sun exposure, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and heat. It's harder to treat due to pigment being deeper within the skin. Usually a medicine promotes skin cell turnover while also reducing hyper pigmentation is needed to treat it.

    Acne scars

    Acne scars are caused from the inflammation from a pimple or a cyst. The inflammation if untreated leads to scarring.

    While hyperpigmentation does not inherently increase skin cancer risk, it can make skin cancer harder to spot or even lead to misdiagnosis of existing ones.

    Prescription medication can remove hyperpigmentation

    Topical prescription medication works by suppressing and fading the pigment-producing cells such as melanin causing pigment to fade as well as preventing it from getting worse.

    It works even better than laser treatments. It's cheaper, less invasive, and results can be seen in a couple weeks.

    • in skin

    UV rays from the sun cause damage to the skin, resulting in the over production of melanin which appear as dark spots.

    The Spot Cream works by blocking the formation of melanin, and fading existing dark spots.

    Reducing melanin is crucial to lighten:

    • Age Spots
    • Age spots - also called liver spots and solar lentigines - are small dark areas on your skin. They usually appear on the body areas most exposed to the sun.
    • Melasma
    • Melasma is a common skin problem. It causes brown to gray-brown patches, usually on the face. Women are far more likely than men to get melasma.
    • Acne Scars
    • Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria.
