The Best Treatment For Hyperpigmentation

Whatever term you use to refer to hyperpigmentation, those blotchy and uneven spots may have you feel self-conscious about your skin. One of the best things you can do to look younger is to prevent hyperpigmentation from showing up in the first place. No matter how much preventative care we do, we are all susceptible to some skin hyperpigmentation.

If you are looking for the best treatment for hyperpigmentation, an IPL photofacial treatment can do the trick! Photofacials are the most effective way to erase sun damage, freckles, age spots, and other skin concerns. Here is everything you need to know about this cosmetic treatment for sun damage!

What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition in which patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. This darkening of the skin occurs when excess melanin forms deposits in the skin and can be brought on by several different factors.

A common type of hyperpigmentation, age spots occur due to sun damage and are typically found on the hands and face or other areas of the body frequently exposed to the sun. Melasma, which is similar in appearance to age spots, appears as the result of hormonal changes (i.e., pregnancy or birth control pills).

Changes in skin color often result from outside causes such as acne, injuries to the skin, and freckles. When exposed to the sun, these dark patches become more pronounced since the melanin absorbs the sun’s UV rays to protect the skin from overexposure. This results in sun tanning, which darkens the areas that are already hyperpigmented.

Due to the advances in laser technology, several highly effective laser treatments can erase sun damage. If you are looking for a cosmetic treatment for sun damage, a photofacial may just be your new go-to for skin rejuvenation!

How Does A Photofacial Work?

Photofacials are perhaps the best treatment for hyperpigmentation. The procedure uses a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to erase sun damage and the appearance of freckles, age spots, and rosacea. This cosmetic treatment for sun damage also has the ability to reduce the size of enlarged pores and improve the overall texture of acne prone skin.

During an IPL photofacial treatment, the laser releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash, which penetrates the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis). The pigmented cells absorb the light energy that is converted into heat and destroys the unwanted pigment to erase sun damage.

You can use IPL anywhere on your body, making it one of, if not the best treatment for hyperpigmentation that can be completed in 20 minutes or less. IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation is ideal for individuals looking to improve the tone and certain skin pigmentations, improving the appearance or rosacea, broken capillaries, acne scarring, and so much more. The treatment also helps to stimulate collagen production and improve connective tissue beneath the skin’s surface.
