Skin Routine for Discolorations or Uneven Skin Tone

Brown spots, discolorations or uneven skin tone may be caused by a number of factors, including sun exposure, melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, scars and genetics. Sun exposure and traumas may make skin look discolored, blotchy, uneven, dull or sallow. Melasma is caused by the combination of sun or light exposure plus hormones, including those during pregnancy, delivery, oral contraceptives, or menopause. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is darkening or discoloration after trauma to the skin, such as inflammation or scarring that turns a brownish color that is not matched with the surrounding skin.

In my dermatology clinics, I treat brown spots, called lentigines, as well as many forms of hyperpigmentation with prescription agents, chemical peels, and select lasers and light devices. In severe cases of melasma, I may also employ oral medications. You may read all about it in my textbook, COSMETIC DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY (Wolters Kluwer).

Prevention of Skin Discolorations:

Avoid sun exposure, wear sun protective clothing and apply sunscreen.
Avoid irritants or anything that inflames the skin.
Melasma may be triggered or worsen with exposure to certain lasers or light devices, so it is imperative to seek expert care.
