Skin Pigmentation

Pigmentation is the color of your skin due to the amount of melanin it contains.

What is it?

Skin coloring, or pigmentation, is determined by melanin, a pigment generated by specific skin cells named melanocytes. Melanin is accountable for the hue of your eyes, hair and notably, your skin. Abnormal or inconsistent skin pigmentation can arise due to sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations, particular medications and skin injuries. Some individuals may encounter pigmentation disorders like hyperpigmentation (dark skin patches) or hypopigmentation (light skin patches). Genetics also influences a person's skin pigmentation.


How is it treated?

Our board-certified dermatologists utilize a range of methods to identify the causes and categories of skin pigmentation. They can customize an effective treatment strategy which might incluce topical creams or lotions, laser procedures, chemical peels or microdermabrasion solutions. 


Furthermore, a dermatologist can advise you on essential lifestyle and skincare alterations to shield your skin from additional harm. We can also conduct regular check-ups to oversee the state of your skin and track the effectiveness of treatments.


If you would like to address and treat your skin pigmentation issues, we are happy to help. With offices in Michigan and Indiana, our expert skin care providers are ready to help you start your journey to clearer, beautiful skin.


Please note that not all cosmetic treatment options are offered in all offices. Please contact one of our offices to inquire about a specific cosmetic treatment you may be interested in.
