What is hyper pigmentation?
There are light-related pigment spots, age spots and freckles. We briefly refer to all these forms as pigment spots or hyperpigmentation, they all refer to pigment disorders. Although these are usually harmless, they should still be examined regularly by a dermatologist! It is also not always possible to tell whether it is actually a brown pigment spot or a birthmark. It is also up to the dermatologist. By the way, birthmarks cannot be treated with bleaching creams.
What are the causes of pigment spots?
- Inflammation such as psoriasis and acne
- Hormones such as birth control pills, pregnancy and menopause
- Medicines such as antibiotics and St. John's wort
- The main culprits are UV rays
Melanin forms in response to UV rays. The melanocytes produce the dark skin pigment that makes us brown. This tan serves as protection against further damage. If everything goes normally in the melanocytes, our tan is even. In the event of a malfunction, isolated (permanent) pigment spots.
The areas most affected are skin areas that are frequently exposed to UV radiation for years without protection: face, neck, décolleté and hands, especially the back of the hand.
What lightens pigment spots again?
If you want to lighten pigment spots and refine the skin tone, it is best to rely on a long-term combination of different methods. Consistent use of sun protection is a must anyway and prevents lightening creams and dermatological treatments from existing damage, at least visually, making up for it.
Pigment creams reduce pigment spots by lightening them.

2. Fruit acid peels
Fruit acid peels are a gentle variant of chemical peels, as they only remove the top layer of the horny cells of the skin and thus actively stimulate the renewal of the skin. The complexion appears treatment for treatment more even and smoother, pigment spots or irregularities in the skin tone are balanced. The exfoliating solutions containing alpha hydroxy (AHA) or glycolic acid can cause irritation such as a slight burning sensation, itching and redness, which, however, subside quickly.
The surface of the skin is damaged and opened using microfine needle pricks. In the course of the natural regeneration process of the skin, the destroyed cells are rejected and replaced by new ones. The cells discolored due to an increased melanin concentration are also removed in this way, so that the pigmentation is lighter and the skin looks more harmonious. In addition, brightening treatments can now penetrate particularly well and deeply into the skin.
4. Fractional laser treatments
The regular irradiation of the skin with fractional laser light is a proven and reliable method to lighten pigment and age spots. The discolored skin cells are systematically destroyed and broken up into tiny pigment particles so that they can be flushed out naturally by the lymphatic system. The complexion appears much more even and even.
