What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation appears as brown spots on your skin. Areas of your skin darken when melanin, the substance that gives skin color, accumulates in high concentrations in specific areas.
Certain internal and external factors can trigger melanin production and the resulting hyperpigmentation, including:
- Sun exposure
- Hormonal changes
- Temperature changes
The Vascular Center Florida offers light and laser treatments designed to get rid of brown spots on the skin.
What Treatments are Available for Hyperpigmentation?
HALO™ Skin Resurfacing
HALO™ Skin Resurfacing uses the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser to deliver ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to areas of hyperpigmentation. Ablative wavelengths remove the top layer of the skin, while non-ablative wavelengths heat the underlying tissue. These combined processes eliminate brown spots and speed up the skin’s natural building and repair processes.
A HALO™ treatment resurfaces the skin surface, causing fresh, new skin to grow in the place of hyperpigmentation.
BBL™ stands for Broadband Light, the most powerful intense pulsed light technology. BBL™ uses high-energy, light pulses to stimulate cell regeneration, collagen production, and the growth of new skin.
ClearSilk™ uses laser heat to break up brown spots on the skin while stimulating skin cell regeneration processes. Like HALO™ and BBL™ treatments, ClearSilk™ gets rid of hyperpigmentation and improves the skin’s appearance.
