What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation refers to the darkening of the skin in small patches or large swaths due to underlying medical conditions, excessive sun exposure, excessive melanin production, or other factors. Hyperpigmentation isn’t usually dangerous, but it can cause self-consciousness about your skin quality and complexion. The pigmented patches vary in shape and size, and they can appear anywhere on the body.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by excessive melanin production. Melanin (produced by the melanocytes skin cells) is the pigment responsible for your skin color. The overproduction of melanin due to medications, medical conditions, pregnancy, hormone changes, and excessive sun exposure can lead to hyperpigmentation in different parts of the body. Common types of hyperpigmentation include melasma and sunspots. At Prejuvenation Aesthetics, you will receive a consultation for a customized medical-grade skincare regimen.

Chemical Peels for Hyperpigmentation

Chemical peels are medical-grade skincare formulations and chemicals applied to your face, neck, and other regions with hyperpigmentation. They exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin, making them shed away to reveal softer, smoother, and more even-textured skin underneath. Over time, the skin tissues with unwanted melanin are replaced by new and fresh skin tissues.

Each chemical peel is uniquely formulated according to your unique goals. While all chemical peels focus on exfoliation, we recommend a specialized melasma peel to control your body’s excessive melasma production. The chemical peel contains formulations that modulate your body’s natural pigment production capabilities, helping you achieve smooth and even skin.

Microneedling for Hyperpigmentation

Microneedling is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation techniques available. This procedure involves making numerous microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface using specialized microneedling devices. Your body reacts to the micro-injuries by increasing blood circulation, increasing skin cell turnover, and activating your innate collagen production capabilities.

Over time, the damaged skin tissues with excessive pigmentation are replaced by smoother and more even-textured skin. And your body produces new collagen fibers to make your skin look smoother and firmer. As such, microneedling treats hyperpigmentation and various other skin concerns, helping you achieve flawless skin. The treatment is painless and involves no downtime.
