 hyperpigmentation treatment in delhi

HYPERPIGMENTATION is a skin condition caused by increased melanin production. As the cells produce too much melanin, this triggers the skin to get darker. Pregnancy can be a natural cause of higher melanin production and hyperpigmentation. Over exposure to sunlight can also worsen this condition as it can darken further already affected areas. Some medication and drugs, such as antibiotics and anti-malaria drugs, are also said to cause this skin condition.

Chloasma or melasma is a typical type of hyperpigmentation. This condition causes the tanned or brown patches on the skin, most typically on the face area. Pregnant women are mostly susceptible to this condition, but even men can also develop this skin problem. Hydroquinone and other prescription creams are commonly used to treat this problem, but it typically fades away for women after their pregnancy.
