Hyperpigmentation is a darkening of the pigment in an area of skin caused by the overproduction of melanin. It can affect any part of the body, including the face, hands, and neck.

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition and usually harmless. However, for cosmetic reasons, it can be a nuisance to those who have it.

It can also affect anyone, but is more prevalent among certain ethnic groups, for example Asian, Mediterranean, African, or Latin.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is the result of an abnormally high concentration, in certain areas of the skin, of melanin-producing melanocytes.

This may be due to:

  • overexposure to the sun
  • heredity
  • picking at the skin
  • hormonal changes
  • certain medications, such as antibiotics, hormone treatments, and anti-seizure drugs
  • inflammation and skin injuries.

More Information


Micro-needling is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny needles, rolled over or punched into the skin, to encourage healing through collagen production.

Micro-needling also helps the skin to absorb cosmeceuticals or prescribed treatments, making them more effective.

For hyperpigmentation, we usually recommend a course of treatments to produce the best results.
