What is Hyperpigmentation?

Have you noticed that some patches of your skin are darker than others? If so, you may have a condition called hyperpigmentation.

How Does Hyperpigmentation Form?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when a skin-coloring substance called melanin collects in high concentrations in localized sections of the dermis. Darker areas develop in response to aging, sun exposure, temperature changes, stress, and hormonal changes. 

Most people develop hyperpigmentation in response to UV exposure. Incoming solar radiation causes the skin to start producing large quantities of melanin. This then concentrates on patches, creating freckles. Over time, these areas can darken, leading to the classic signs of hyperpigmentation. 

Can You Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation?

While hyperpigmentation or melasma might seem like a permanent feature of your skin, there are methods for reducing its appearance. 

Many of these methods involve using applicators to break up the melanin-containing compounds under the skin and getting the body to recycle the debris. 

In many cases, it is possible to return skin cells to their normal function. You can use light- and laser-based treatments to clear away dark marks on your face, neck, arms, chest, and body that you don’t want.

Best Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

So, what treatments are available for patients with hyperpigmentation here at The Vascular Experts Florida? Here are your options: 

ClearSilk™

ClearSilk™ is a laser skin resurfacing treatment developed by Sciton. It treats multiple skin conditions – including hyperpigmentation and melasma – by heating cells deep in dermal tissues. Lower layers of the skin become “heat-stressed,” encouraging them to activate their latent rejuvenation potential. Following treatment, cells express themselves more healthfully and correct some of their dysfunction. The result of this is clearer skin, tighter pores, and a more glowing complexion. Dark spots appear reduced. 

BBL™

BBL™ is a light-based treatment that uses broadband light to stimulate and regenerate skin lesions. Dr. Lina Vargas and the team at The Vascular Experts Florida use an applicator to break up melanin deposits in the dermis and return the skin to a more youthful appearance. The technique works on both melasma and a range of other skin complaints, including fine lines, wrinkles, chronic acne scarring, and rosacea. And because it uses nothing but light energy, it is considered a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment. 

HALO™

HALO™ is one of the world’s most versatile skin-enhancing treatments. Unlike standard laser-based therapies, HALO™ delivers both ablative and non-ablative action. One of the laser’s wavelengths removes the surface layer of skin, allowing fresh cells to emerge from below. The other heats cells deep in the dermis, encouraging them to enter more youthful cell cycles. Patients who undergo treatment experience minimal downtime, less discomfort, and rapid healing.
