What You Need to Know About Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that is characterized by excessive pigmentation, often appearing in patches. It is caused by a build-up of melanin within the skin. The condition is quite common and generally harmless, but many people who have it are uncomfortable with how it makes them look.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Lee's SummitHyperpigmentation is the result of a build-up of melanin in the skin, and it can be the result of an injury, a hormonal imbalance, acne, certain medication, aging and excessive sun exposure. It can also happen naturally, without a real cause at all.

What are the Treatment Options for Hyperpigmentation?

People interested in reducing the appearance of their hyperpigmentation generally start with mild treatments such as skin lighteners, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen with a high SPF can also help prevent hyper-pigmentation from worsening. Thick make-up can help cover up light patches, but it must be worn every day.

If these mild treatments do not work, or if people would like increased skin lightening, other options are available, like Fraxel®, a noninvasive procedure to help restore normal pigmentation, or IPL™ Photorejuvenation, which works to fight hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure. A chemical peel or microdermabrasion procedure may also help get pigmentation closer to the desired levels.

What are the Benefits of Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

In addition to the improved skin appearance, hyperpigmentation treatment offers a few other benefits as well. It can decrease inflammation and improve nerve and tissue repair and regeneration. It can also reduce pain and improve microcirculation and vasodilatation.

Individuals who are interested in improving their skin appearance, quality and circulation should speak with the skin care experts at Summit Skin & Vein Care about their treatment options. Hyper-pigmentation treatment can dramatically improve the skin’s appearance, but only if the procedure is completed by a knowledgeable and experienced expert.
