Skin discoloration, age spots, and sun damage are all issues encompassed by the umbrella term hyperpigmentation. Over time, an uneven skin tone characteristic of these issues tends to develop due to aging and frequent sun exposure. When this happens, patches of skin become darker in color, giving you an uneven complexion. This discoloration can affect everyone and occurs when excess amounts of melanin (the brown pigment that produces skin color) form deposits in the skin. If you’ve noticed the appearance of dark spots on your face or body, our North Carolina medspas can provide you with treatment options.


How Does Hyperpigmentation Occur?

Hyperpigmentation appears when cells called melanocytes begin to produce too much pigment. This overproduction causes spots or patches to form. This type of skin discoloration can appear anywhere and can be caused by inflammation, skin trauma, medications, certain cosmetics, and concerns such as melasma. When it comes to your skin, you shouldn’t settle for living with this condition. Our dedicated BodyLase® providers can help your skin heal, getting you ever closer to your ideal beauty goals. 

Hyperpigmentation Treatment Options

Here at our Raleigh and Cary med spas, we proudly offer several treatment options for dealing with hyperpigmentation. Our IPL Photofacials, as well as our other laser treatments, are completely non-invasive and serve the dual function of stimulating your collagen production. Our chemical peels work in much the same way and offer customizable options to fit your skin needs and cater to its sensitivity. If you’re interested in learning more, please visit the pages below:
