Hyperpigmentation is one of the most common reasons that people seek out aesthetic services. The skin condition can be caused by numerous factors, including inflammation, injury, or sun damage. Some individuals develop the condition due to an interaction between ultraviolet light and certain medications that they are taking.
Another common cause of the condition is melasma. These dark brown spots often appear on the cheeks, temples, forehead, upper lip, or nose. Melasma is common among pregnant women and those with darker skin. Let’s take a look at just some of your many available treatment options if you are dealing with some form of hyperpigmentation.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that helps with a range of skin problems. It is most effective when you are seeking treatment for superficial or minimal discoloration. During this treatment, we use a special device to gently remove the outermost skin layer.
The patients who respond best to microdermabrasion treatments for hyperpigmentation are those who undergo regular procedures. If your hyperpigmentation is moderate to severe, a stronger form of treatment may be more appropriate. However, it all depends on the unique case, as hyperpigmentation treatment is not one-size-fits-all.
Medical-Grade Chemical Peels
A chemical peel treatment is helpful in removing deeper pigment associated with this condition. We apply a special solution containing beneficial ingredients to encourage the removal of the upper skin layer. Your body responds to the treatment by forming new skin that has a more even skin tone.
