What causes dark spots?

“Dark spots or hyperpigmentation are due to the overproduction of melanin in the skin by melanocytes,” as plastic surgeon Melissa Doft, M.D., mentioned. This extra melanin can be triggered by a variety of factors, she says: “Hormones—both estrogen and progesterone—can increase the level of melanin—why pregnant women see dark spots that often lighten following birth; the sun can increase the level of melanin—why we have more dark spots after the summer; and age can increase the size of the melanocytes—why we see dark age spots in older patients.”

Other factors that can cause dark spots include skin irritation from acne, waxing, and harsh scrubs. Now that you know what causes dark spots, keep reading to learn how to get rid of them.


What treatments do dermatologists recommend for Dark Spots?

Sunscreen is the first step in treating dark spots and patches. Whether you're treating the dark spots on your own or visiting a dermatologist, wearing sunscreen when going outside is essential. When used on a daily basis, sunscreen can help prevent the formation of new dark spots and patches. It can also aid in the removal of existing ones.

Apply sunscreen to any exposed skin that clothing will not cover.

Dermatologists also recommend wearing a wide-brimmed hat outside to achieve the best results.

Use a sunscreen that provides all of the following benefits to prevent (and help clear) dark spots:


  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Broad-spectrum protection
  • Water-resistance
  • One (or both) of these active ingredients, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide
  • Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) formula if you have oily skin


Use a product that can even out your skin tone

Once you've eliminated the source of the dark spots and protected your skin from the sun, a product that can fade dark spots (or even out your skin tone) is more likely to be effective.

You might find success with a product that is available without a prescription. Use a product that contains one of the following ingredients if you choose this option:


  • Azelaic acid
  • Glycolic acid
  • Kojic acid
  • Retinoid (retinol, tretinoin, adapalene gel, or tazarotene)
  • Vitamin C


These ingredients have the ability to lighten existing dark spots. In some cases, the ingredient can also slow down melanin production, which causes dark spots and patches.


How long does it take for hyperpigmentation to fade?

Once the source of the dark spots or patches is identified and eliminated, fading can take some time. A few shades darker than your natural skin color will usually fade in 6 to 12 months.

However, if the color is deeply embedded in your skin, it can take years to fade. Deep-seated skin discoloration is frequently slate blue to gray in color. It could also be brown, but it will be much darker than your natural skin tone.

Treatment can hasten the disappearance of dark spots and patches.

Although some people experience mild tightness and redness for about an hour after the treatment, the side effects and risks of HydraFacial are generally minor.
