Hyperpigmentation is caused by excess production of melanin, which is a pigment that gives skin its color. The most common types of hyperpigmentation include melasma, sunspots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. There are a variety of causes of hyperpigmentation, including hormonal changes, sun exposure, skin injury or inflammation, and medication. Understanding the type of the pigmentation is important to provide effective treatment. Our expert team treats hyperpigmentation with great outcomes using effective combinations of treatments, including energy-based devices, dermatologic products, and medical-grade skincare.
The latest generation of chemical peels target hyperpigmentation gently yet effectively. The peels correct pigmentation problems, brighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of sun and age spots. Good for most skin types, the peels work well on all skin colors, including darker complexions, which traditionally did not fare well with chemical peels.
A proven treatment with powerful results, laser resurfacing reveals brand new, healthy skin. Laser energy is directed into the skin using one of our advanced laser technologies, carefully selected by our team based on your skin, lifestyle, and goals. The laser targets skin cells, triggering the formation of a fresh layer of skin with reduced hyperpigmentation.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses light energy to selectively target sunspots and other hyperpigmented areas. IPL heats the targeted pigmented area without heating up surrounding tissue. The heated pigment is lifted to the surface of the skin and is then naturally removed through the skin turnover process.
