Hypo-pigmentation is the absence of normal amounts of melanin (the chemical that gives skin color). It can be caused by disease, injury, burns or other trauma to the skin. The most common cause of hypo-pigmentation, however, is damage or trauma to the skin. Burns, infections, pimples, blisters, scrapes, and any injuries that result in scarring can all lead to skin discoloration. Be aware, too, that improperly administered skin resurfacing treatments, such as laser and chemical peels can cause skin damage that results in hypo-pigmentation.
Hypo-pigmentation can be tricky to treat. Topical medications sometimes help, and light-based procedures like IPL, excimer lasers, and the Fraxel Restore laser can also be explored.
Once you determine your skin-tone shade and select Natural Cover Cream color, you can use it all over as your everyday foundation, or simply to spot cover challenging areas.
