Pigment Correction

Pigment correction in Brooklyn is an effective treatment when there is an overproduction of melanin in your skin. This leads to hyperpigmentation which can occur due to acne scars or sun damage. A common form of hyperpigmentation presents itself as brown spots on the skin and is best known as melisma. This type of pigmentation occurs due to an increase in hormones during pregnancy or from too much exposure to the sun. While none of these issues are medically worrisome, they can cause you to think less of your appearance and can be treated via a process called pigment correction in Brooklyn.

Sometimes, hyperpigmentation is caused by the amount of elastin and collagen in your skin. These two components are responsible for the texture, elasticity, and tone of your skin. Therefore, they can be affected by cosmetic treatments, diet, hormones, your age, and more.
