To find out more about the causes and treatments for your hyperpigmentation issue, make an appointment with one of the doctors at Skin Renewal.
Their experience and know-how will definitely help you put your best face forward.
Golfers, runners, tennis players, and anybody who spends a decent amount of time outside – are you here for this?
Sunscreen is a given, always, come rain or shine.
It should be drilled in from a young age, and men are obviously no exception to that rule.
This magic liquid is especially important for those prone to skin conditions aggravated by sun exposure, like hyperpigmentation.
While sun avoidance is your best bet in curbing pesky skin pigmentation, there are other treatments available.
The first step is to know what skin condition you have. One cause, particularly for those with darker skin, is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
A PIH is a skin ‘injury’ (not a scar), which can come from a nasty pimple or an ingrown hair that has become inflamed, leaving a dark mark in its destructive wake.
Another type of hyperpigmentation is melasma, which is caused by hormones but can also be the result of being in the sun, especially in the case of men.
Melasma can form in women during the hormonally active time of pregnancy, which can be helped with hormonal therapy and oral contraception.
Men, too, can get melasma from unchecked hormones.
Various studies have suggested that the presence of subtle testicular resistance is a driving factor for the skin condition.
Also, certain medications, like finasteride taken to decrease hair loss, might impact hormone levels and increase the risk of melasma in men.
Unfortunately, melasma in men is underreported, as many attempt to treat the skin condition with ineffective over-the-counter products (or not at all) rather than seeking professional help.
But it is really a good idea to consult a doctor or dermatologist who can diagnose and treat it.
Sure, topical treatments can help improve the look of dark marks, but if you’re not treating the root cause, which usually involves balancing out your hormones, the problem won’t go away.
Skin Renewal has decades of experience treating all types of hyperpigmentation, including melasma.
As far as in-office treatments go, Skin Renewal typically treats melasma in men using their Melasma & Deep Pigmentation Solutions.
These include laser treatments and chemicals peels, such as their popular Dermamelan Depigmentation treatment, that deliver amazing results:
Skin Renewal can also help you devise an effective homecare routine using medical-grade skincare products which are clinically proven to make a visible, and sometimes life-changing, difference.
