Chemical peels are skin care treatments that exfoliate the skin with a combination of acids within a chemical solution. They improve the appearance of the skin by chemically exfoliating the damaged skin cells on the top layer. A chemical peel removes the epidermis, which is the top layer of the skin, and in doing so, removes those damaged skin cells responsible for skin discoloration.
The skin responds to the treatment by regenerating and creating new, healthier skin cells. The new skin cells aren’t discolored, so once you undergo the treatment, you can expect to achieve a more uniform complexion. Depending on your specific needs and what type of hyperpigmentation you’re trying to treat, you may need several treatments to effectively treat pigmentation issues and achieve a uniform complexion.
Microneedling With Meso-Glide
Microneedling is a skincare treatment also known as collagen induction therapy. It is designed to create tiny injuries on the skin’s surface that the body responds to by increasing collagen production and cellular turnover rates. Microneedling with meso-glide takes the microneedling treatment to the next level.
This treatment uses anti-aging serums and skin needling techniques to improve the complexion, stimulate collagen production, and increase cellular turnover rate. In doing so, it lightens dark spots, sunspots, and the different forms of melasma. By increasing collagen production, the skin is repaired and restored as new cells replace old, dark, damaged ones.
RF microneedling is another type of needling treatment that combines the power of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This type of microneedling treats and improves the different types of melasma by using two techniques to double down on collagen production. RF microneedling is a powerful treatment that can effectively treat some of the most problematic and stubborn skin concerns, discoloration included.
Depending on your needs, you may be a good candidate for microneedling, microneedling with meso-glide, or RF microneedling. Each needling treatment combines customizable techniques to increase collagen production and perfect the skin on different levels.
CO2 Laser Treatments
The CO2 laser improves the appearance of a complexion by promoting a uniform skin tone and texture while simultaneously tightening the skin and increasing collagen production. The CO2 laser can treat many skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation that has resulted from sun damage or other factors.
This treatment helps break down the damaged skin cell layer so the body can replace the damaged skin cells with healthy, fresh cells. One of our skincare experts will evaluate your skin during your consultation to determine if the CO2 laser is suitable for you.
The PicoLaze laser system is a revolutionary skincare treatment that revitalizes the complexion. It is an effective solution for treating different forms of skin discoloration and pigmentation. This laser uses light energy to quickly and effectively break down the dark spots in your skin to restore a more uniform complexion without resulting in hypo-pigmentation – i.e., skin lightening – or any scarring.
Depending on your specific needs, you may need a series of treatments with four to six weeks between each. An initial consultation with a skincare expert at our office is the best way to determine if PicoLaze is right for you.
More than just an average facial, Hydrafacial is a powerful skincare treatment that corrects skin discoloration and other skin concerns. This treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates skin in ways other facials cannot. In doing so, the Hydrafacial treats stubborn skin imperfections like sunspots, creates an even skin tone, and enables you to achieve a healthy glow.
Patients with more minor forms of skin discoloration can schedule a monthly Hydrafacial to perfect their skin and maintain a beautiful, radiant, healthy complexion long-term.
