Hyperpigmentation or Discoloration at Skin Solutions
While considered harmless, hyperpigmentation or discoloration can nonetheless make us feel self-conscious and less attractive than we really are. If hyperpigmentation is making you feel uncomfortable, we can help.
AT SKIN SOLUTIONS, WE KNOW THE BEST WAY TO HANDLE HYPERPIGMENTATION IS BY TREATING IT.
What is hyperpigmentation or discoloration?
Hyperpigmentation or discoloration occurs when areas of skin become darker in color than surrounding skin. Areas darken when an excess of melanin (the brown pigment that produces normal skin color) forms deposits in the skin. Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation, as are freckles and melasma spots (the result of hormonal changes).
Treatment for hyperpigmentation or discoloration
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL has been shown to be an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation. IPL is a gentle, non-invasive procedure. It delivers powerful pulses of light that target problem areas and stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in smoother, more even-colored skin.

Fraxel Re:store® Dual Laser
Fraxel laser treatment produces thousands of tiny but deep microscopic treatment zones in your skin that eliminate old pigmented cells in the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and penetrate the underlying dermis. By stimulating the body’s natural healing process, it creates new, healthy, and tighter tissue to replace damaged skin.

The ResurFX laser works well on hyperpigmentation by stimulating the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating it. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time.

The Skin Solutions MicroPeel
The MicroPeel works on hyperpigmentation by removing dead cellular layers, exfoliating with alpha-hydroxy, and relieving inflammation with cryogenic therapy (a freezing process).
