Hyperpigmentation is a common condition that leads to a gradual darkening of the skin. It can develop in small areas, cover large patches, or affect the entire body. Although it is not normally harmful, it can indicate the presence of another medical condition.
Melasma is a skin condition that results in hyperpigmentation. It can develop due to hormonal fluctuations that occur during pregnancy. This form can develop on any area of the body and face.
Sunspots, also known as age spots or liver spots, are another common cause of hyperpigmentation. They develop due to cumulative exposure to ultraviolet radiation. They typically appear as spots on sun-exposed areas of the skin, like the face and hands.
Collagen induction therapy, more commonly known as microneedling, has the ability to stimulate the formation of new skin tissue and minimize the appearance of skin problems like scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
We move the microneedling device over your skin repeatedly, forming many micro-channels in the skin’s surface. Although these tiny punctures are virtually invisible to the naked eye, they stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This skin remodeling effect allows for the effective reduction or elimination of the signs of hyperpigmentation.
This makes another great treatment choice for certain forms of hyperpigmentation. It involves the use of Intense Pulsed Light in order to fade sun spots and other signs of skin damage. With both microneedling and photofacial treatments, you may require multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.
