Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Austin
Hyperpigmentation Treatment – Austin Med Spa
Hyperpigmentation, while typically harmless, can become quite bothersome to many of us as we get older. This condition occurs due to the overproduction of melanin, the pigment in the body that determines skin color, resulting in darkening of the skin. Hyperpigmentation affects both men and women of all ethnic groups.
There are a variety of different factors that can cause hyperpigmnetation to develop, including sun damage, hormones, aging, inflammation and other skin injuries. Individuals with darker skin tones tend to be more prone to hyperpigmentation, as they have a lot of melanin. The condition can manifest in a variety of forms, from small patches to a more diffuse appearance covering large areas of the body.
Many of our Austin clients come to us frustrated with uneven skin tone caused by hyperpigmentation. This condition can understandably be a cosmetic nuisance, especially when it occurs in prominent areas like the face. Hyperpigmentation can cause the skin to appear dull, dry and unhealthy.
Fortunately, there are a variety of safe and effective treatment options available to diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone. Personique On The Spot offers the following hyperpigmentation treatments in Austin.
Laser & Light-based Treatment – This type of treatment works to gently renew the skin and remove hyperpigmentation, brown age spots, photo damage, freckles and more. Procedures like IPL Photofacial and triniti™ skin series work by targeting the pigmented spots with heat energy. The cells containing the darker pigment break apart and are eliminated by the body’s natural cellular renewal process, leaving behind fresh, regenerated skin that is more even in appearance.
Chemical Peels – Chemical peels are highly effective in the treatment of melasma and other forms of skin darkening like freckles and “age spots”. This type of procedure utilizes a mixture of acids to exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin. Personique On The Spot offers a hyperpigmentation chemical peel that is specially formulated to reach deeper levels of the skin and dissolve damaged, irregularly pigmented tissue. As the healing process occurs, older skin is subsequently replaced by new skin cells, creating a more radiant and even complexion.
Microdermabrasion – This is another type of exfoliation treatment that works to restore a more uniform complexion by buffing away the surface layer of dead skin cells. Personique On The Spot has both diamond tipped and crystal microdermabrasion machines. Both produce the same results, but use different techniques. Visit our microdermabrasion page to learn more.
Skin Care Products – There are a number of skin care products available that are highly effective in the treatment of uneven, discolored skin. Skin lightening agents like hydroquinone and potent skin exfoliation agents like Retin-A are often used to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Personique On The Spot offers skin care assessments by a licensed skin care specialist who can customize a skin care regime for your specific needs.
