Hyperpigmentation is the name given to skin patches that grow darker than surrounding skin tissue. Some examples of this condition are age spots, freckles, and melasma. Each of them may be due to a different cause and may require a different type of treatment, including lotions and cosmetic procedures.
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that develops when the skin produces an abundance of melanin, the pigment that colors your skin. This leads to the appearance of patches or spots of skin that are darker than the surrounding areas.
Even though hyperpigmentation is completely harmless, you may still be considering your treatment options due to a purely cosmetic concern. To prevent uneven skin pigmentation, you should limit your exposure to the sun and wear a good sunscreen when you’re outdoors. You should also avoid picking at skin that has been injured.
Cosmetic treatments for hyperpigmentation and other skin concerns have come a long way in recent years. They give us the ability to precisely target damaged skin tissue and leave surrounding skin intact. Since less skin is damaged in these types of treatments, less recovery time is necessary.
During a treatment at our office, we may use the Lumecca system by InMode to address your areas of uneven pigmentation. The treatment is entirely non-surgical and non-invasive, making it very convenient for those with busy schedules. This treatment can target various forms of hyperpigmentation including: age spots, broken capillaries, redness, and more.
There are quite a few treatments available that can effectively treat hyperpigmentation. We can determine the right treatment for you during a consultation at our office. Regardless of the treatment used, you should generally avoid prolonged sun exposure for a few days, and avoid activities that could dehydrate your skin. Remain hydrated and lock in moisture with a good moisturizer.
