How can I reduce hyperpigmentation?

Have you tried a ton of products to lighten the dark spots on your face but nothing seems to work? If so, you are probably desperate to find out what can reduce hyperpigmentation.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a skin issue that is most often the result of excess sun exposure, which causes the body to produce too much melanin (pigment that gives skin color). Hormonal fluctuations and aging can also contribute to hyperpigmentation. The most common types of hyperpigmentation are sun spots, age spots, and melasma.

How can I reduce hyperpigmentation?

You can reduce hyperpigmentation with a photofacial. A photofacial is a non-invasive skin treatment in which light-based technology is used to treat sun damage and reduce signs of aging.

Photofacials reduce hyperpigmentation by breaking down the bonds of the pigment particles. The treated particles are then naturally eliminated by the body over the following weeks.

How does a photofacial work?

There are different types of photofacial technologies available, including the state-of-the-art Harmony XL by Alma Lasers. The Harmony XL laser emits short pulses of broadband light that selectively target and break down the pigmented areas of the skin. The photofacial also boosts collagen, and this leads to plumper, younger-looking skin.

Photofacials revitalize the appearance of the skin, leaving it fresher and more youthful.

Is there any downtime

There is typically no downtime after a photofacial.

How many treatments do I need to see results?

It can take anywhere from 3-6 treatments to achieve the desired improvement in hyperpigmentation.
