Some Treatment Options for Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a medical term used to describe dark patches of skin. These patches are caused by excessive melanin production and can be caused by everything from acne scars and sun damage to hormonal fluctuations.
If you're dealing with hyperpigmentation, know that you're not alone. It is a common skin condition and there are many different treatment options to choose from. Keep reading to learn more about your options, including products you can try at home.
Laser peel treatments use a targeted beam of light to reduce hyperpigmentation.
SINCOHEREN's laser utilizes the explosive effect of the ND:YAG LASER, where the laser penetrates the epidermis into the dermis and acts on the pigmented mass, which is absorbed by the pigment. Due to the extremely short, nanosecond laser pulse and ultra-high energy, the pigment mass rapidly expands and breaks up into smaller pieces, which are eliminated by metabolism. In this case, the pigment gradually lightens and eventually disappears.
Facial acids, or skin acids, work by exfoliating, or shedding, the top layer of your skin. Whenever you exfoliate your skin, new skin cells appear, replacing the old ones. This process helps even out your skin tone.
Many facial acids are available OTC in beauty stores and pharmacies. Popular choices include azelaic acid, tretinoin, salicylic acid and vitamin C. Facial acids work well for mild hyperpigmentation in people with lighter skin tones.
Chemical peels use stronger concentrations of acid to treat the desired area of skin. They reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation by removing the epidermis. Deeper versions may also penetrate the middle layer of your skin (the dermis), producing more dramatic results.
If you spend a lot of time out in the sun, a chemical peel may not be the best treatment option for you. Chemical peels can make your skin more sensitive to the sun's rays.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is a non-ablative (fractional) laser treatment. IPL therapy, also known as photorejuvenation, stimulates collagen growth within the dermis. It usually requires multiple treatments.
IPL is used for overall pigmentation problems, but flat spots in particular respond to this treatment. It may also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, spider veins and enlarged pores.

Microdermabrasion is an in-office procedure used to treat hyperpigmentation that affects only the epidermis (superficial scars).
During this procedure, your dermatologist will use a drill-like handheld tool with a wire brush or other abrasive attachment. The tool is then swept over your skin to quickly - but gently - remove the epidermis. You may need several treatments to achieve your desired results.
Skin tone will play a role in the intensity and duration of the hyperpigmentation treatment. Laser treatments, but only at lower intensities and in more frequent sessions. Topical treatments generally take longer to produce visible results. Patience is the key to any treatment plan. No matter what treatment you ultimately choose, it is important to protect your skin from further sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Applying sunscreen daily is a must.
