Hyperpigmentation Treatment

As you age areas and patches of your skin can change color and turn darker. When there is too much pigment on the surface of the skin (or melanin) this is not pleasant and can be a dead giveaway of a person’s age; this condition is, however, quite harmless.

Human skin contains melanocyte cells that produce melanin, a pigment found in the skin, hair, and eyes, through a process called melanogenesis. Too much melanin leads to hyperpigmented skin, common examples of which include freckles and age spots. Hyperpigmentation can result from sun exposure, trauma to the skin, a medical condition, or as a side effect of certain drugs. While hyperpigmentation is not a serious medical condition, you may want to seek treatment for cosmetic reasons.

At our clinic in Nairobi we offer a couple of youth-fixing pigmentation treatments that will assist.

How can I get Diagnosed with Hyperpigmentation?

Your dermatologist will diagnose Hyperpigmentation through a physical exam, you’ll learn the severity of your hyperpigmentation and what the best treatment is.

Is Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation Permanent?

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) fades away on its own. It may take 3-24 months for the dark spots to vanish. There may be stubborn hyperpigmentation that refuses to go away on its own and require certain treatments.

With so many treatment options available, you no longer have to live with darker skin.

I had my Molemapping done four months ago at the Gigiri branch during one of my visits in Kenya, timely report generation helped me identify a possible cancer causing mole. Thank you Dr Pancholi and the whole Gigiri staff. Oh they actually offered Telemedicine consultation for follow ups. See you on my next trip!
