Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of the skin caused by the overproduction of melanin, a pigment that gives color to human hair, skin and eyes. Because melanin lives in the outermost layer of the skin, by nature, dark-skinned people have more melanin and pigment than those of light skin tone.

Melanin also serves as the body’s natural sun protectant. When skin is exposed to long-term UV rays, melanocytes are triggered to produce more melanin. Essentially, a “tan” is the skin working to protect itself, yet often causing hidden damages that can surface years later, in the form of splotchy patches of hyper pigmentation, ones we often refer to as age spots, sun spots or freckles.

Luckily, hyperpigmentation by any cause is a benign condition, but it can be very frustrating for men and women alike. For women, makeup has often provided some coverage. Yet, there are far more effective and lasting ways to reduce and remove the effects of too much melanin.

From least to most aggressive, treatments for hyperpigmentation include:

  • Topical Suppressants: Hydroquinone and kojic acid calm the melanocytes that cause dark spots. They are frequently recommended prior to treatment with laser or light therapies.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion stimulates new skin growth by exfoliating the outer layers with a combination of suction and our diamond tip wand.
  • Chemical Peels: Peels help stimulate the growth of newer, healthy skin by stripping away outer layers and dead skin cells.
  • Laser: Laser treatments work to send deep pulses of light energy to the affected areas of the skin, resulting in pigmented lesions breaking up and becoming naturally absorbed in the body.
The laser absorbs the melanin present in the pigmented cells and breaks them down resulting in a lighter, paler skin tone and cells that blend more naturally into their surrounding areas. The surrounding skin itself will not be affected.
Between 2-6 treatments are required depending on the size and damage of the pigmented area, scheduling one treatment every 4 weeks.
