Normal skin contains cells called melanocytes that produce the brown skin-coloring pigment melanin. There are several conditions in which melanocytes are either abnormal or abnormally distributed. A pale area of the skin is the result of fewer or less active melanocytes, whereas a darker area (or area that tans easily) indicates more numerous or more active melanocytes. The conditions that produce hyper pigmentation include melasma, brown spots associated with age or sun exposure, darks spots following acne particularly in skin of color etc.
A variety of hyperpigmentation can occur on the face, neck, hands, and chest. These are areas that are often visible and ones in which our clients want to look the best possible.We treat hyper pigmentation with a wide variety of FDA approved lasers and light systems, chemical peels, and advanced skincare products.
Results can often be seen after one treatment but normally require a series of treatments for maximum results.
