Improving your skin for a more even complexion.
Hyperpigmentation comes in many forms like melasma, sun damage, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It can make your complexion uneven and make you feel more self-conscious of your skin.
Hyperpigmentation is also difficult to cover with makeup, and while practicing good skin care is very helpful, our professional hyperpigmentation treatments in LaSalle can have the biggest impact on your skin.
Causes of Hyperpigmentation
Factors that cause hyperpigmentation depend on the type of discoloration.
Melasma is sometimes referred to as the “mask of pregnancy” since it’s often a side effect of hormonal changes during pregnancy. Other factors like sun exposure and certain skincare products may cause melasma.
Excess Sun Exposure
For sun damage, excess sun exposure causes your skin cells to produce more melanin, darkening the skin in certain areas as a way to protect itself. When that excess pigment doesn’t fade away, it creates sun spots/age spots.
Acne or other skin trauma can cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Darker skin tones can be more susceptible to this type of hyperpigmentation, as this skin type can take longer to heal and lighten dark spots.
BBL uses BroadBand Light to improve many different skin concerns using multiple settings. We offer the latest advancement in BBL technology with HERO (High Energy Rapid Output), which allows us to treat larger areas with greater comfort. BBL can improve areas of hyperpigmentation with a specific Smart Filter.
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation to help increase skin cell turnover. We use a surgical-grade scalpel over your skin to slough away dead skin cells and hyperpigmentation. This encourages your skin cells to regenerate.
If your skin is more on the sensitive side, a chemical peel may be the better exfoliation option for you, as it is less physically abrasive than dermaplaning. Chemical peels rely on chemical exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells and promote new ones to form to improve hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling (Skinpen), also with PRP
Microneedling uses tiny micro-needles to create controlled injury in the skin, triggering your skin’s natural healing process to start. This promotes collagen production and regeneration from within and breaks up areas of hyperpigmentation.
For discoloration improvement, we are proud to offer HALO laser, the world’s first Hybrid Fractional laser for effective laser resurfacing with little downtime. HALO stimulates cell regeneration and collagen production to break up hyperpigmentation and smooth the surface of your skin.
