The best treatments for hyperpigmentation
15th July 2021
Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that affects people regardless of skin color – studies show that most people deal with a form of this skin condition at least once in a lifetime. Many of them don’t even know that the darker patch of skin is called “hyperpigmentation”. This condition is more likely to affect the face, arms or legs – these areas are more exposed to the sun. Hyperpigmentation can also occur after a skin inflammation, such are burns or acne. Even if this condition is harmless, some people are bothered by the unsightly appearance of the skin spots and want to get rid of them as soon as possible. Today we will talk about the best treatments for hyperpigmentation!
Chemical peel – a popular, non-invasive treatment
A chemical peel is an effective treatment for pigmentation problems. We use organic acids for a gentle, but effective exfoliation – the dead skin cells are removed, the darker spots disappear and the skin is rejuvenated. Depending on the pigmented area, you may need one session of treatment or more. A chemical peel is a safe procedure, but after the treatment you may experience skin irritation. You don’t have to worry – we will give you pre and post homecare advice to feel comfortable and to get rid of the irritation in a short period of time.
We use the best cosmeceutical skincare to treat hyperpigmentation, even severe pigmentation, such as melasma. Dr Zein Obagi has an extensive experience in creating treatments to suit different skin types. We recommend ZO 3 Step Peel, an innovative peeling treatment based on a blend of exfoliants and retinol that targets pigmentation or other skin conditions. The products we use create a skin-barrier protection and restore skin’s ability to repair and renew itself. Book a consultation and we will offer you a personalized treatment for your pigmentation problems.
IPL therapy – an advanced technology for hyperpigmentation
ILP or intense pulsed light therapy is an advanced treatment we use to target hyperpigmentation. This technology sends intense light in short pulses which reach the deeper layers of the skin. The light is absorbed by the darker spots of the skin, making them disappear. Most of our clients get the best results after 4-6 sessions of IPL therapy combined with chemical peel. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to IPL therapy is the pain – don’t worry, the procedure is manageable. During the treatment you will feel just a little pinching sensation. We use the renowned Lynton Luminette laser system – its cooling system ensures that the light doesn’t become too hot, so the procedure is 100% safe.
We recommend IPL therapy with advanced cosmeceutical skin care and chemical peel for better results. We like to take a longer-term approach when it comes to pigmentation problems and the first step is a consultation to determine the cause of the hyperpigmentation and to develop a treatment plan tailored for your needs. We have experience in treating pigmentation disorders and all of our clients are happy with the results. It’s your turn to get rid of the dark skin patches at Deluxe Clinic!
