5 Skin Treatments That Help You Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation

Areas of your skin that are noticeably darker than the rest of your body are referred to as hyperpigmentation. It indicates that your body is producing an excessive amount of melanin, the brown pigment responsible for darker skin areas.

There are four basic causes of hyperpigmentation: melasma, post-inflammatory skin discoloration, UV damage, and health complications.

Fortunately, there are some effective treatment options for reducing melanin overproduction and eliminating hyperpigmentation. Lightening the darker skin tone region will remove all forms of hyperpigmentation in that area.

Read on to learn about some of the most effective skin treatments for hyperpigmentation.

Retinoids, which are derived from vitamin A, are one of the most widely used skin care agents available over the counter. They are able to go deeper into the skin than larger molecules because of their tiny molecular size.

While you can easily get these ingredients at a drugstore, there are prescription versions as well. The OTC variants are typically less potent. If you haven’t seen improvement after using a retinoid for a couple of months, you should consult a dermatologist about using tretinoin (Retin-A).

Facial acids

The newest trend in skincare is acid treatments for the skin. Acids, in diluted form, are gaining popularity as effective treatments for hyperpigmentation. These face acids reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin, leaving you with clearer, glowing skin. Due to their strong exfoliating properties, facial acids can help you achieve a more even skin tone by eliminating the top layer of dead skin cells.

Whether it’s kojic acid or glycolic acid, there are plenty of skin acids that can help you achieve a more uniform complexion. Make sure you get a skin specialist’s opinion before picking out a facial acid to use on your skin.

Microneedling with or without PRP

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a highly sought-after treatment since it kick-starts the body’s natural ability to repair itself. Hyperpigmentation and other forms of skin discoloration are two of the many skin issues that can be treated using microneedling.

A microneedling treatment involves the use of a pen-shaped instrument fitted with a number of very fine needles. These needles cause tiny skin punctures, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and increasing collagen and elastin formation.

We provide microneedling with or without platelet-rich plasma treatment at Infuze Wellness. In a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial, the patient’s own blood is drawn and then processed to collect the PRP components, which are either re-injected or applied topically to the affected area.

The PRP solution has several naturally-occurring compounds that boost collagen and elastin formation in the skin. This reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and other forms of skin discoloration.

Chemical peels

While the idea of a chemical peel to treat hyperpigmentation may strike fear in the hearts of some, be assured that it is both safe and quite efficient for dealing with virtually any type of skin discoloration.

Chemical peels are a type of superficial exfoliation in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin. This causes the epidermis to peel off. This procedure revives the skin and reveals a fresher, more radiant appearance under the surface by removing any dead cells.

In order to cure hyperpigmentation, a chemical peel will often remove the skin’s outermost layer, which has the deepest pigmentation. Your skin’s healing process will leave it suppler and smoother, with a more uniform tone and texture.

At Infuze Wellness, we offer a wide variety of chemical peels from industry-leading companies like ZO, Alastin, and Neocutis. During your first visit with our skin care specialist, we will assess your hyperpigmented skin and discuss which chemical peel can help you achieve your skin goals.

Using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency, the Morpheus8 procedure rejuvenates the skin fractionally without causing any damage. This non-surgical method uses micropins to create microscopic channels deep below the skin, which boosts collagen growth.

Morpheus8 sends healing energy to the skin’s outermost layers. This aids in lightening parts of the skin that have become too pigmented due to factors like age or sun exposure. It helps reduce the appearance of pores and refreshes the skin’s overall appearance by enhancing its glow, tone, and texture.
