Hyperpigmentation Treatment In Southport

Hyperpigmentation is the name given to the condition when areas of your skin are darker than others. Though it isn’t harmful, a hyperpigmentation treatment at Christopher Maerevoet may be an option you’d like to consider to achieve a more even skin tone.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

A substance in your body, called melanin, produces the pigmentation for your hair, eyes and skin. There are two different types of melanin; a reddish pigment called pheomelanin and a dark pigment, eumelanin. Which one is more prominent and how much of each your body produces will result in the colour of your eyes, skin and hair! For example, if you have high levels of pheomelanin and relatively low levels of eumelanin, chances are you’ll have red hair and blue eyes.
Hyperpigmentation is caused when excess pigment is present in some areas of your skin. It causes these areas to become darker than the skin around it. If you have it, you might want to look at hyperpigmentation treatment options.

A Hyperpigmentation Treatment You Can Try At Home

There are some steps that you can take to lessen the appearance of darker areas on your skin yourself. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which is made from sugar cane. It’s being adopted by many as an alternative to traditional exfoliators as it strips dead skin cells without the harsh abrasion of gritty scrubs. It’s also a good hyperpigmentation treatment because the cells are their darkest on the surface of your skin, so by removing the top layers, excess pigment will fade, evening out your skin tone. Though, depending on the level of your hyperpigmentation, you may want to consider one of the treatments that we offer.

Professional Hyperpigmentation Treatment At Christopher Maerevoet

At Christopher Maerevoet, we use the latest in IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology in the form of the Photronics Energist system. This hyperpigmentation treatment uses the safe, effective and clinically proven method of pulsed light. Light energy from the machine heats up the melanin, while your surrounding skin stays cool. The heat breaks up the melanin into tiny particles, which are then removed by the body’s natural waste processes, resulting in an improvement in skin tone while leaving it clear and smooth!
Another option is Fractional Resurfacing, which uses Lynton laser technology to stimulate your body into generating new, healthy skin cells to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
Both treatments are also highly effective in lessening the appearance of hyperpigmentation that has appeared over time, such as age spots, or areas of your skin that have become darker due to overexposure to the sun.
