Skin Discoloration Treatment Options

Depending upon the intensity of skin discoloration and the cause behind it our aestheticians will recommend treatment options that are most beneficial for the recovery of normal skin.

Some common treatment options for skin discoloration are listed below.

  • IPL:

IPL treatments use intense light pulses to penetrate the skin. This constricts blood vessels and balances your skin tone. Photofacial skin treatments are also used to help get rid of brown spots on the skin and improve collagen levels and elastic fibers.

  • Chemical peels:

There are numerous benefits of chemical peels, one of which includes reducing the appearance of skin discoloration and pigmentation. A chemical peel treatment helps discolaration by turning over the top layers of damaged skin. The peel then reveals the healthier layer of skin underneath.

This treatment is very effective in reducing discoloration in the skin. A microneedling procedure is used to help eliminate the color and even out skin tone while also brightening the skin due to invoked collagen production.

  • Microdermabrasion:

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.

As you can see, there are multiple treatment options available to help treat skin discoloration. Contact us today to see which treatment option is best for you.
