Hyperpigmentation refers to skin discoloration that can happen for several reasons, including brown spots due to sun exposure. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can result from acne and rosacea and melasma from hormonal conditions. Whatever the reason, these patches create an uneven skin tone and can be unsightly in appearance. Fortunately, at Aspen Aesthetics + Pharmacy, we have many effective ways of treating these conditions.
How Does Hyperpigmentation Happen?
When it comes to our skin, we all have our insecurities. Thankfully we can combat some of our concerns with different aesthetic treatments to become more confident in the skin we are in. Typically, hyperpigmentation means your body overproduces pigment, or melanin, in a specific area. The melanin pools and spots or patches appear darker than the surrounding skin. Sun damage or ultraviolet light is the most significant contributing factor.
How Can Hyperpigmentation Be Treated?
There are many effective ways to remove damaged and discolored skin without surgery. Not all methods can altogether remove hyperpigmentation in all cases, but most of the time, we can significantly reduce the contrast, giving you a much more even overall skin tone. We have many ways to reduce unsightly discoloration and restore your complexion, including lasers, facials, and peels. Each of our treatments is personalized to fit your individual needs, as all pigment is not the same, and to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Contact our office to discuss options such as:
