Fade pigment spots: myth or reality?

Estomper les taches pigmentaires : mythe ou réalité ?

Pigment spots, also called hyperpigmentation, are dark areas that appear on the skin under the influence of different factors (sun, aging, hormones, scars, etc.). They appear on the face and body, particularly in areas exposed to the sun such as the neck, décolleté and hands. Completely benign, they mainly have an aesthetic impact and can be a source of stigma... This is why many people would like to make them disappear!

There is no magic formula for removing age spots, but there are solutions to reduce skin hyperpigmentation . First of all, by taking the time to identify the different causes that favor its appearance. Then, by adopting a skincare routine adapted to your skin over the long term.

This is the opportunity to discover MELA , the expert anti-dark spot range for the face and body from TOPICREM. Our products act on all spots and all skin types , to restore a uniform and radiant complexion.


Why do I have brown spots on my skin?

Age spots on the face and body are caused by excessive production of melanin , a brown pigment that causes your skin's natural color. If you have discovered hyperpigmentation on your skin, rest assured! It can appear on all skin types, all phototypes, and at all ages.

Multiple factors explain the occurrence of irregular skin pigmentation :

  • lots of exposure to the sun. We then often speak of a “sunspot”
  • a scar , left by an injury or acne spot
  • hormonal changes , especially at menopause or during pregnancy. In the latter case, we speak of a “pregnancy mask”
  • the external environment , pollution
  • aging of the skin

Good to know: 1 in 2 people in the world are affected by pigmentation disorders, including 59% women¹. So this is a very common concern! The intensity of age spots varies greatly from one person to another, depending on skin type and degree of exposure to the sun. Dermo-cosmetics is one of the solutions to help correct these imperfections.

Pigment spots: how to reduce them?

There are different types of dermo-cosmetic treatments to treat dark spots that appear on the skin. Some people choose technological treatments , such as pulsed light. This option can be very effective, but it is not suitable for all skin types and can cause irritation .

More accessible and less restrictive, our MELA expert anti-stain range has many advantages to seduce you.
