Hyperpigmentation is a common, and usually harmless condition that occurs when an area of skin becomes darker than the rest of the surrounding skin. This condition can be naturally occurring as a part of a hormonal change from pregnancy or aging, or it can be induced through overexposure to sun, severe acne or laser treatments.
Most treatments for Hyperpigmentation include a prescription to hydroquinone. Seeing one of our physicians today can determine the cause of your hyperpigmentation and the best treatment option for your specific skin type.
Hyperpigmentation is associated with a number of diseases or conditions, including the following:
Exposure to certain chemicals such as salicylic acid, bleomycin, and cisplatin.

As a result of tinea cruris.
Additionally, hyperpigmentation can sometimes be induced by dermatological or cosmetic laser procedures.
