What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

The Vascular Experts Florida offers many treatments to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, also known as brown spots on the skin. Hyperpigmentation results from certain internal and external factors that alter the skin’s chemical activities. Keep reading to learn more about what causes hyperpigmentation and available treatment options.

Hyperpigmentation Overview

Just about anyone can develop dark patches or brown spots on the skin, also known as hyperpigmentation. Sun exposure, aging, and stress are just a few factors that increase the risk of hyperpigmentation. Fortunately, minimally invasive treatments exist to eliminate brown spots and regrow fresh, new skin in their place.

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
  • Aging
  • Stress
  • 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.
