Yes, and each type of hyperpigmentation may be treated differently, so it is important to ask a skincare provider for advice after a thorough analysis of the skin. Some forms of hyperpigmentation, including melasma or spots from sun damage, are more likely to occur on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun. These areas include the face, arms, and legs. Other types of hyperpigmentation form after an injury or skin inflammation, such as cuts, burns, acne, or lupus. These can occur anywhere on the body.
Depending on the severity of the condition, cosmetic treatments that may help with hyperpigmentation may include the following:
To rejuvenate the skin on your body, you can use a IPL photofacial treatment, which uses light pulses to penetrate inside the skin. This constricts your blood vessels and balances your natural skin tone. Photofacial laser treatments also get rid of dark and dull spots on the body and improve collagen levels and elastic fibers.
- Chemical peels:
There are various types of chemical peels that can help with skin pigmentation. Generally, a chemical peel involves the chemical exfoliation of the layer of damaged skin. The peel then reveals the healthier layer of skin underneath.
This advanced technology helps a lot in fighting skin discoloration. In this technique, micro-needles are penetrated through the skin to help eliminate the color. At the same time, anti-oxidants and skin brighteners are infused to make the discoloration vanish.
In a microdermabrasion skin procedure, a suction device is used to remove not only the dead cells of skin but also exfoliates the discolored skin entirely. When the outer layer of skin is removed the new layer, which has its natural pigment, comes out. This treatment requires a few sessions to help you completely get rid of pigmented skin.
