A change from your regular skin colour to a lighter (hypo-) or darker (hyper-) tone than usual is called pigmentation. While it can sometimes be cosmetically unappealing, when pigmentation is followed by trauma to the skin, it can leave behind further marks.
Exposure to sunlight is one of the major causes. However, pigmentation in areas like the neck, underarms, and other skin folds may point to a hormonal cause.
Knowing the cause of your pigmentation or dark circles is important, especially to rule out hormonal conditions. A dermatologist through Remedico will be able to advise you about the reasons for your pigmentation, as well as how to reduce and prevent it.
They will provide you a treatment plan with the following:
Diagnosis of your medical condition(s), and potential causes
Including creams, lotions, moisturisers, and other products
If required, oral tablets to treat the underlying condition, and improve your symptoms
Depending on your condition, supplements to help promote skin health and improve appearance
Face washes, shampoos, and instructions on when and how to wash your face and body
Nutritional advice on foods to eat and avoid, as well as lifestyle habits to promote healthy skin
Procedures for improving skin appearance and health, if they think you will benefit
Blood and other tests, if necessary for further investigation
