Hyperpigmentation Treatment Options

If you’re living with hyperpigmentation, you may be trying to conceal these darkened areas with cosmetics or struggling to live with them, as is. There are a variety of causes behind hyperpigmentation, and many of them are out of your control. Higher altitudes like those found in Denver can contribute to hyperpigmentation or areas of skin with increased melanin. Other common causes include hormones, sun exposure and skin injury.

Affected areas don’t usually clear up on their own. Instead of covering with makeup, consider skin care treatment options to reduce intensity. Some over the counter and prescription treatments aren’t right for everyone– they may be not strong enough or they might be too intense. Skin care treatments for hyperpigmentation provided by Vasu Skin Solutions offer a combination of strength with gentle, controlled application by a pro aesthetician with experience and training.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use topical treatments to remove top or top and middle layers of skin to reduce the look of hyperpigmentation. Side effects can include redness and tenderness, some irritation and even blisters. Chemical peels can help resolve hyperpigmentation resulting from melasma, sun damage, and age spots.

Laser Peels

Laser skin treatments, sometimes called resurfacing, can be delivered through ablative and non-ablative methods. This skin care treatment can lift layers of skin or work within the skin’s layers to remove pigment directly from skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL is a non-ablative treatment that uses targeted light at specific wavelengths to break up hemoglobin and hyperpigmentation deep within the layers of the skin. It’s also called a photofacial. It’s a good solution for areas of flat hyperpigmentation.


Microdermabrasion lifts the top layer of skin with a drill-like tool that has an abrasive head. It helps resolve surface scarring and discoloration from the top layer of skin. For extreme cases, dermabrasion can be used, which is a similar technique that treats skin at a deeper level.

The effectiveness of treatments for hyperpigmentation can vary by skin type and tone as well as the nature of the condition. By partnering with a highly trained aesthetician at Vasu Skin Solutions in Denver, you can be assured of receiving the ideal treatment that’s aligned with your unique skin care needs. Restore your confidence in your appearance, and reduce your reliance on cosmetics to hide hyperpigmentation concerns.
