Hyperpigmentation Treatments in LaSalle

Hyperpigmentation & Sun Damage Treatments

LIV Wellness Lounge

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

Hormonal Changes

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.

Skin Trauma

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.

Treatment Options

Dermaplaning

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.

Treatment Options

Chemical Peels

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.

Treatment Options

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.
