Years to neglecting your skin in the sun can lead to pigmentation

Age Spots & sun damage

Dealing with hyperpigmentation can be quite a challenge, and there are days when makeup just doesn’t seem to do the trick, right? While it may not be something you can bid farewell to forever, the good news is that professional treatments can work wonders in improving its appearance and reducing it.

Hyperpigmentation is when certain areas of your skin get darker due to an excess of melanin, which is the pigment that gives your skin its colour. It’s a common issue, but there are ways to make it look better with a little with your friends from Cypress Quay.

Causes of hyper pigmentation

Sun Exposure

When your skin gets sun-kissed, those UV (ultraviolet) rays have a special effect on your melanocytes, those little cells that make melanin. They go into overdrive, producing more melanin to shield your skin from harm.

But, here’s the thing – if you spend way too much time in the sun wearing little to no sunscreen, it can result in those pesky dark spots, freckles, and an uneven skin tone. So, keep that broad spectrum sunscreen handy! 

Post Inflammatory

Now, let’s talk about something called “Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation” or PIH for short. This is what happens after your skin goes through a bit of a tough time, like an injury, inflammation, or even a little trauma.

Things like acne, burns, cuts and insect bites can cause it. Your skin’s response? It starts producing more melanin in that area, and voila! You might notice those not-so-friendly dark spots or patches. But don’t worry, there are ways to deal with them! 


Ah, the wonders of hormones! They can be a bit unpredictable sometimes, especially during exciting phases like pregnancy (ever heard of the “pregnancy mask” or melasma?), menopause, or when you’re on the pill.

These hormonal shifts can make your melanin production go a little haywire, and you might notice some darkening in certain spots on your skin.

I’ve had both laser hair removal and, more recently, fat freezing. I would recommend both treatments to anyone. Always a warm, friendly welcome, and the results are amazing.


Very friendly and make you feel completely comfortable. It’s the best thing I’ve ever decided to do for my self-esteem!


I'm super happy with my results from having fat-freezing done on my love handles. I’ve lost a few inches, and I'm chuffed to bits.
