Best Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

Frequent sun exposure, injury, acne, inflammation or hormonal fluctuations can cause the skin to develop hyperpigmentation. Skin discoloration can happen to anyone, but people with darker skin tones may find skin discoloration to be more of a problem. Dark patches of skin on the face can be particularly discouraging because they can make a person self-conscious. The degree to which skin can become hyperpigmented can vary in color and severity. There are effective options to treating discolored skin and increased pigmentation.

How Hyperpigmentation Forms

Discolored skin occurs from too much melanin being produced for some reason. This can be a result of ultra violet light exposure from the sun or from tanning beds. Excess pigmentation can also occur from hormonal fluctuations and because of inflammation or damage to the skin. The latter is referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Acne, burns, cuts, insect bites and psoriasis can leave darker colored patches of skin. This unusual pigmentation will sometimes go away over time, as the skin heals.

There are several non-invasive treatments for skin that is hyperpigmented. Many of these treatments have successful results. This common skin condition is often treated with topical medications, which are available in by prescription or over-the-counter. These creams lighten the skin with varying results. Two of the best treatments for hyperpigmented skin are chemical peels and laser skin rejuvenation.

Chemical Peels for Hyperpigmentation

Chemical Peels can be used on the face, neck and hands. The process involves applying an acidic solution to exfoliate the outer layer of skin to reveal new skin, shedding the hyperpigmentation. Peels improve the skin’s texture and color and can reduce skin discolorations and blemishes. Depending on your skin’s needs, three are three different intensity levels: superficial, medium and deep. The side effects and length of recovery time depends on one’s skin sensitivity and strength of peel used. More than one session is usually necessary to achieve the desired results.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is a mild, non-surgical solution to improve the appearance of the skin. One of the many benefits of laser treatment is that it can even out blotchy skin color and smooth out lines and wrinkles. The laser can target specific skin issues, using gentle pulses of light. It requires little downtime or recovery.
A clear and even complexion is possible with great options available for skin discoloration treatment. Professional remedies, like laser skin rejuvenation and chemical peels, are among the best solutions for skin discoloration problems like hyperpigmentation.
