How Can I Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation?

Are you frustrated with dark spots and melasma on your skin? If so, there’s good news: you can get rid of hyperpigmentation using laser treatments. Specific wavelengths can destabilize the skin structures that cause pigmented patches, causing them to fade over time.

How Does Hyperpigmentation Form?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin builds up under the skin, causing some regions to appear darker than others. Often, the condition presents itself as freckles, brown spots, or sunspots. While many instances of hyperpigmentation are the unavoidable consequence of aging, some relate to the environment. High temperatures and stress, for example, both cause patches of skin to become highly pigmented. So too can exposure to UV and sun damage from excessive sunbathing. 

Sometimes patients can develop hyperpigmentation through hormonal changes. Pregnant women, for instance, often develop melasma because of changes in their biochemistry.

Clear Hyperpigmentation with Laser Treatments

Dr. Vargas and the Vascular Experts team use a variety of laser treatments that can reduce and even clear hyperpigmented regions of skin. 

HALO™ Laser Skin Resurfacing

HALO™ Laser skin resurfacing uses a hybrid ablative and non-ablative system to target pigmented areas of skin. The non-ablative wavelengths target structures causing the dark spots under the skin, while the ablative laser rejuvenates the surface layer. Combining the lasers helps to reduce downtime while boosting the results. 

BBL™ BroadBand Light

BBL™ BroadBand Light uses intense pulsed light to stimulate pigmented regions and encourage rejuvenation. High-energy beams improve both the tone and the texture of the skin, leading to dramatic results.


ClearSilk™ is another laser-based skin resurfacing technique that works by applying heat. Dr. Vargas and the team use a high-powered device to increase the temperature of skin affected by pigmentation. As the tissue gets hotter, it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging pigment clearing. 

ClearSilk™ treatment usually takes around fifteen minutes. You will need to return to the clinic four to six times, spaced three to four weeks apart. Dr. Vargas will speak with you about your specific treatment routine.

Benefits of Laser Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

Laser hyperpigmentation treatment offers a host of benefits, making it one of the most popular skin improvement treatments on the market today. 

  • No downtime: Most laser skin treatments to target hyperpigmentation come without any associated downtime. You don’t need to spend any time as an inpatient and usually get on with your regular activities afterward. 
  • High potency: Laser skin treatments for hyperpigmentation initiate the body’s latent rejuvenation potential to generate lasting results. Skin cells start behaving more youthfully, clearing away some of the pigment under the skin. 
  • Non-invasive: Laser treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical. 
  • Improve other skin conditions: Laser techniques can reduce skin laxity, red and brown spots, and fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Rapid treatment: Get results quickly with no surgery.
