The UAE cosmetics market is growing by over 8% annually, and with good reason. Hyperpigmentation products and other skincare items are becoming more commonplace as treatments to boost skin health and confidence evolve. 

If you're suffering from hyperpigmentation and trying to eliminate dark splotches on your skin, it's important to analyze hyperpigmentation treatment options and preventative care for dark skin spots. Read on to learn some of the best treatments that Dermalogica has to offer.

Face Mapping Skin Analysis

Understanding your individual skin care needs is the first step toward combatting hyperpigmentation. Since hyperpigmentation symptoms include darker patches on the skin and inflammation, it's fairly easy to figure out when you are struggling with it. However, only an in-depth analysis of your skin will help you determine causes, severity, and potential solutions.

That's where Dermalogica's Face Mapping solutions come in!

Our online assessment service helps you identify what type of skin you have. You'll know if it's smooth, oily, dry, or prone to sun-related damage. The test will also inform you of the current condition of your skin and give you a personally tailored skincare routine to follow.

The process is simple, quick, and efficient. You take a selfie and upload it to our diagnostic tool. The tool uses AI to analyze your skin and what active ingredients you need to combat hyperpigmentation.

It only takes five minutes and is the first step toward hyperpigmentation treatment. This is because your skin has unique needs. Certain products will be better than others.


A lack of Vitamin A can partially cause hyperpigmentation. This is because the vitamin's purpose is to exfoliate dead skin and replace dried or dead cells with new ones. Higher cell turnover makes dark skin spots fade naturally when they regenerate.

Retinoids are a Vitamin A derivative that you can use for anti-aging. You can use it as a cream during your daily skincare regimen. Over time, it will encourage your skin to regenerate cells quickly to retain even coloring.

Retinoids are often used alongside Azelaic acid, a Dicarboxylic acid made from yeast. It restores the newly generated skin cells to the healthiest possible state. This lightens dark skin spots and uneven skin coloring.

Note that not everyone can tolerate regular retinoid cream use. Some people find that it irritates their skin, which means that alternative treatment will be necessary. Luckily, several good treatment options are available.

Vitamin C Serums

Vitamin C helps your skin stay protected against free radicals. It's a potent antioxidant. This means that it stops your body from producing too much melanin in certain areas, so your skin won't darken because you have too much melanin in your skin.

A 2020 study shows that Vitamin C stops melanin synthesis from happening. Tyrosinase, an enzyme that makes your skin get darker, becomes less active because of the Vitamin C. This means that you won't need to deal with dark skin spots.

In short, it's a preventative measure.

Dermalogica's Biolumin-C Vitamin C serum brightens and exfoliates your skin. This keeps it firm and promotes even coloring. This serum includes advanced bio-technology and an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex that combats oxidization before it becomes an issue.

The product has three times the brightening power of other products, and it corrects pre-existing free radical damage to boot. All you need to do is smooth a bit over your face in both the morning and at night.



Powerbright dark spot serum is one of Dermalogica's best products for treating hyperpigmentation symptoms. Within days, the serum gets rid of uneven pigment. Regular application also helps to keep your skin looking even over time, so it's preventative as well as reactive.

Powerbright aims to consolidate the best ingredients in hyperpigmentation products into one convenient serum. It has light-diffusing technology and is used in both niacinamide and hexylresorcinol. This helps dark spots fade, especially when paired with other ingredients like the antioxidant Ashwagandha and luminosity-inspiring Black Current Oil.

Powerbright is also an easy-to-use product that you apply every day after cleansing and toning your face. You just put a single pump of cream over your face and neck, applying it in upward and gentle strokes. The cream gets absorbed within just one minute, so it's fast as well as effective.

Melanopro Treatments

Melanopro treatments are different from Powerbright serum because they require both in-clinic and at-home care. It has been tested on a lot of different skin tones. Tests show that it can help with hyperpigmentation as well as issues like sun spots, melasma, and rough skin in many patients.

The in-clinic part of Melanopro treatments is the first part of a two-phase plan. You go to a skin center in the UAE and get an Intensive Peeling Masque applied to the affected areas. This happens within a 45-minute span, and you'll take the masque off when you get home.

When you leave the clinic, you'll get Dermalogica Melanopro products to apply later. This is the second part of the two-phase treatment. You can put Continuous Resurfacing Cream, Ultracalming Mist, and other personalized prescription products on at home as directed.

This peel program will help your skin look better within six weeks. The treatment may take effect in even less time for some patients. Basically, you'll get fast and long-lasting results that lead to evenly-hued, smooth, and bright skin.

Sun Protection Products

Sun exposure can also cause hyperpigmentation. This is because UV rays cause oxidative stress. More oxidization means darker skin in areas that have a lot of sun exposure, which causes uneven coloring.

High-quality SPF sunscreen can help protect your skin against these UV-related issues. It's a great preventative measure against hyperpigmentation.
