Skin hyper pigmentation in dubai is very common among both men and women. The uneven skin tone can at times become very disturbing to oneself, but we are here to tell you that you don’t have to keep up with it, because at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, we can just about make it vanish, leaving you with a clear and smooth skin.

When you produce excess melanin, that’s when hyper pigmentation occurs, which makes you look like your skin tone is made of different hues. These uneven tones on your skin do not have to necessarily be darker than your natural skin color to be termed as hyper pigmentation, but they also come in lighter shades.

Since the only way to hide them, that is if you are not bold enough to flaunt them, is to apply plenty of make-up which takes up most of your day, we have decided to enlighten you on the causes of this over-production of melanin as well as what you can do to prevent it.

Just to note, hyperpigmentation in Dubai is not a life threatening condition, but honestly speaking, won’t life just be much easier if you had an even skin tone? But before we go there, this is how you got it in the first place.

Sun exposure:

Of course sun exposure is the first on the list. This is because when it comes to the health of your skin, hyperpigmentation in Dubai included, sun is the ultimate no no. Harmful UV rays cause everything from premature aging to, uneven skin tone. So keep your skin protected at all times by wearing a high spectrum sun-protection cream; whether you can see the sun or not.


If your skin is genetically predisposed to have an uneven tone, then there is no way you can shield yourself from it. At this point you should try your best not to accelerate it, or seek treatment for it. At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery we have a number of effective treatments, but that’s for another day.


Unbalanced hormones can lead to different types of skin hyperpigmentation in Dubai, like melasma, which is also called the pregnancy mask due to its attack on most expectant women. Actually studies show that about 90% of expectant women have this uneven skin tone, so you should not be worried about it. At the pregnancy state, there’s nothing much you can do about it. Our suggestion is to wait until birth, because it normally disappears six months or more post child birth. If it doesn’t disappear, book a treatment with us and we will help it disappear.

Birth control pills:

Since they only work by doing something to your hormones, it is no wonder that they cause hyperpigmentation to some people. As we had said previously, our bodies are all different, and what causes uneven skin tone to Mary, might not cause it to Lucy. One way of prevention is to go back to your healthcare provider and try a different brand.


There are some anti-biotics, cancer drugs and antisezure medications which lead to an uneven skin tone. Although this will not show up immediately after starting on the drug, if six months down the line you start seeing some uneven skin tone, then you should go back to your doctor and let him suggest a different kind of drug.

Skin injuries:

Also known as PIH, short for Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, it is caused by a number of injuries to the skin. These include inflammations, burns, psoriasis, and acne vulgaris. The only way to get rid of this type of hyperpigmentation is to treat the underlying cause.

To know more about uneven skin tone and how you can treat it, you can get in touch with us for a free consultation. In the meantime, remember to moisturize, exfoliate and cleanse your skin on a regular basis to keep it smooth, even-toned and glowing.
