How Can I Solve Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when patches of skin darken. This darkening is the result of excess melanin, the brown pigment that creates normal skin color forms melanin deposits.  The most common forms of hyperpigmentation are melasma and sunspots and typically include the face, arms, and legs. 

While hyperpigmentation is harmless, it can leave you feeling self-conscious. The good news is The Refinery offers a laser facial treatment that can improve your hyperpigmentation and leave you with clearer, more radiant skin. Keep reading to learn more.

What is a Laser Facial Treatment?

A laser facial is a simple, effective treatment that can do wonders for hyperpigmentation. It uses a special laser to emit pulses of light energy to your areas of concern. It can break down hyperpigmentation and allow these pigments to be reabsorbed by your body. The results? Clear, rejuvenated skin. In most cases, a laser facial treatment takes anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes to complete.

Laser Facial Treatment Recovery

One of the most noteworthy benefits of laser facial treatment is the fact that it comes with absolutely no downtime. You are welcome to resume work and your daily activities immediately after treatment. All we ask is that you apply sunscreen as your skin may be a bit sensitive afterwards.

Good Candidates for a Laser Facial Treatment

 If you are bothered by sunspots, brown spots, discoloration, or other sun damage, it’s definitely worth a consultation. In addition, laser facial treatments may make sense if you’d like to treat and improve the appearance of spider veins, rosacea, redness, or freckles. During a consultation, we can inform you of whether you’re a good candidate for a laser facial treatment. If not, we’ll be happy to recommend an alternative option. 

Other Hyperpigmentation Tips

In addition to the laser facial treatment, there are a few other things you can do to prevent and improve hyperpigmentation. First and foremost, avoid excessive sun exposure. If you do go out in the sun, apply an SPF of 30 or higher so it doesn’t darken. Also, refrain from picking at hyperpigmentation as doing so can lead to scabs, spots, and acne.
