Hyperpigmentation is caused by an excess production of melanin. This excess melanin produces skin patches that are darker than the surrounding skin. Some common names for these skin patches are age spots, freckles and sun spots. Common causes of hyperpigmentation are sun exposure, hormonal changes and heredity. Certain medications will contribute to this condition. Acne and other injuries to the skin may also trigger deposits of pigment.
Color correction is the process of removing this excessive pigment. Some color correction treatments will also treat pigment below the skin's surface. This subcutaneous pigment contributes to the dull, ashen look of aging skin. Color correction produces a more even skin tone along with a more luminous overall look to the skin.
There have been many recent scientific advancements in the treatment of excess pigment. Our clinic offers the latest in both chemical and technological advancements in the field. After a full medical history our esthetic staff can recommend a treatment plan that will address your pigment issues and help establish a home routine that will preserve your results and help minimize the production of pigment in the future.
We offer the following color correction treatments:
Chemical PeelsChemical peels work by using a solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. The chemicals used vary in strength and depth of penetration. A chemical peel or series of peels can help improve the appearance of acne or acne scarring, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, irregular pigment and sun damage. You end up with smoother, younger-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion Microdermabrasion is a mechanical removal of the top layer of the skin. It is performed by using a machine that combines a fine abrasive tip or crystals and suction applied to the skin. It is used to improve conditions on the surface of the skin such as minor sun damage, acne and superficial scarring.
