What Causes Uneven Skin Pigmentation?

Uneven skin pigmentation can develop for many reasons. Hyperpigmentation is the most common form of uneven skin tone and includes:

  • Age spots and sun spots: Dark, asymmetrical spots can form on your skin as a result of age or lifestyle factors that increase your body’s melanin production and distribution. Melanin is the dark brown pigment in the skin.
  • Melasma: The dark patches of melasma typically appear as a result of hormone changes from pregnancy or birth control.
  • Post-inflammatory pigmentation: These marks appear when melanin production increases in response to an injury or wound. The most common example of this is a dark mark left behind from acne.
  • Freckles: These spots are primarily genetic, though sun exposure can cause them to darken.

PicoSure Treatment For Hyperpigmentation

We are proud to offer the innovative PicoSure treatment to reduce uneven pigmentation and revitalize the appearance of your skin. This treatment uses laser energy to improve skin tone by stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin in your skin.

The precise laser energy applies gentle pressure to your skin. This signals the surrounding cells to heal the area of skin discoloration. PicoSure is even used for tattoo removal because of its astounding ability to remove unwanted pigmentation.

What To Expect From A PicoSure Treatment

The potential discomfort, redness, and recovery time associated with traditional laser skin treatments is greatly reduced through PicoSure technology. The laser used in this treatment flashes very rapidly, which greatly reduces skin irritation. Additionally, the healing process is accelerated because the laser stimulates the production of collagen in your body. You can apply makeup, sunscreen, and moisturizer as usual after treatment because the surface of your skin has not been damaged.

The number of treatments needed can vary depending on the pigmentation concern. Our dermatologists will develop a treatment plan to address your own unique concerns.

Spot Peels To Reduce Dark Spots

Spot peels are another method of reducing skin discoloration. A spot peel is a unique chemical peel that specifically targets and lightens uneven pigmentation through chemical exfoliation. Gentle acids are applied to your skin to reveal smoother, more even skin.

The treatment can take as little as 20 minutes, and the results can last for months. Spot peels are mild and require no downtime. They may cause the skin to appear slightly pink for a day or two after application. Keep in mind that sunscreen should be worn after any chemical peel because your skin may be more susceptible to UV damage.

 What Treatment Is Right For Me?

The best treatment for you depends on a variety of factors including the type, intensity, and size of your dark spots. A personalized consultation with our experienced dermatologists can help you discover the most effective treatment for your personal skin concerns.
