HYPERPIGMENTATION + YOU

Updated: Apr 21, 2023

Welcome to the home of beautiful, glowing skin! At Bare Aesthetics, we understand how important it is to have a complexion that radiates health, and we’re here to help you achieve that. Hyperpigmentation can be a big barrier to your healthiest-looking skin, and it’s important to understand the root causes and treatment options available.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin, which is the natural pigment that gives our skin, hair and eyes their color. Hyperpigmentation can appear as brown, black, gray, red or pink spots or patches. The spots are sometimes called age spots, sun spots or liver spots. The spots can occur in just one area of the body or all over. Whether it’s caused by acne, sun exposure, or hormonal changes, hyperpigmentation can be a difficult condition to manage.


That’s why our skin specialists have tailored the best hyperpigmentation treatments specifically for darker skin tones. We know that Fitzpatrick skin types 3, 4, 5, and 6 experience hyperpigmentation differently than lighter skin tones, and it’s essential to take this into account when treating hyperpigmentation. We understand that everyone’s skin responds differently to treatments, so we make sure to discuss with our patients what the best path is for their individual skin type.


Have you ever wondered why dark and brown skin experience hyperpigmentation differently?


Darker skin has larger melanosomes, which contain more melanin (pigment), so inflammation in darker skin can cause more severe discoloration than in lighter skin. This condition, called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), impacts darker skin more than their lighter skin types and yes it even makes a difference when you get those summer tan lines. Don't worry—there are still options for treating dark spots and hyperpigmentation on darker skin!


Treatments for Hyperpigmentation:

When treating dark skin, it's important to be mindful of the delicate balance between treating the condition and making it worse. With that in mind, there are a few methods that can help you achieve a brighter, more even skin tone.


CHEMICAL PEELS

Medium-depth chemical peels are an effective and safe way to treat hyperpigmentation in people of color. And there's no need to worry about a lot of pain, because low-concentration peels like the VI Peel are gentle and effective. With these peels, you can get rid of dark spots without triggering an inflammatory response. Plus, it's painless and recovery time is minimal. If you want to lighten dark spots, it's worth considering a medium-depth chemical peel.


They're a great way to get the beautiful, even-toned complexion you've been dreaming of. Plus, you don't have to worry about a lot of downtime or discomfort. Talk to your provider about the VI Peel and see if it's the right option for you.



NON-ABLATIVE LASERS

Non-ablative lasers are an excellent option for skin of all tones to achieve that refreshed, healthy glow you’ve been looking for! At-home treatments can be effective, but are not tailored to your individual skin type and tone, so it’s important to confer with a specialist to find the best treatment-path that’s right for you. Non-ablative lasers, like the Candela GentleMax Pro®Plus System, provide a safe and effective way to reduce dark spots and dark patches, as well as to rejuvenate your overall skin tone.


The best part about non-ablative laser treatments is that you can expect to see results with minimal downtime and discomfort. Results can be seen in just one-to-three treatments, with some patients seeing results after just one session. As with any laser treatment, it’s important to follow an everyday skin-care regime, as well as wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.


MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is a great way to help refresh and rejuvenate your skin. The tiny needles create a controlled injury on the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. This healing process boosts collagen production and helps reduce the appearance of skin aging concerns like texture, elasticity, and hyperpigmentation.


With just enough pressure to trigger the skin’s healing response, you can feel confident that this procedure is safe for all skin tones. And when combined with a product like the VI Peel, you can be sure that microneedling will help you reach your skin goals.


At the end of the day, it's all about finding what works best for you and your skin. With the right combination of treatments, you'll be well on your way to healthy and beautiful skin. And if you need any help, support, and answers—we’re just a call, click or text away!
