Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses treatment for hyperpigmentation dark spots

Whole Living explores the challenge of “Clearing Up Dark Spots on Your Face” and Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares when to call in the professionals.


You know that summer is officially over when your beautiful summer color fades and brown patches – known as hyperpigmentation – appear. But, what do you do?

Whole Living shares information about the types of hyperpigmentation and then offers a series of tips on how to treat the condition. Then, Dr. Joel Schlessinger reveals when you should call in the experts for more significant treatment.

According to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, “Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race.”

Some types of skin are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with significant exposure to the sun. Regardless, if you have this condition, you want it fixed!

Dr. Joel Schlessinger offers insight into ways to tackle tougher hyperpigmentation dark spots.


There are prescription treatments that contain hydroquinone that do double duty in brightening your skin. Read the Whole Living article to get more specifics about hydroquinone and to hear what Dr. Joel Schlessinger has to say about how it works to lighten your skin.

Before you contact a doctor, though, you might consider non-prescription treatment for hyperpigmentation, found at LovelySkin.com.
