At Rejuvené MD in El Paso, TX, we know that hyperpigmentation comes in many different forms, but one thing remains true: it always detracts from your appearance. For that reason, we offer several different melasma and pigment correction treatments that will help even out your skin tone so that you can feel more confident in your appearance and love your complexion.
What Are Melasma and Pigment Correction Treatments?
Melasma and pigment correction treatments are specifically designed to combat and eliminate the different forms of melasma and hyperpigmentation that affect both men and women. These treatments can help remove brown spots, the pregnancy mask, uneven and discolored patches of skin, or however melasma has chosen to affect your appearance and skin.
OxyGeneo Facials are specialized exfoliating skincare treatments that infuse the skin with oxygen and nutrient-rich serums. This treatment uses microdermabrasion techniques to rejuvenate the skin and can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Those with more mild forms of melasma may benefit from a treatment plan that includes one or more OxyGeneo Facials.
As a bonus, undergoing these treatments can also help improve different aspects of your skin by restoring youth to your complexion, boosting collagen production, increasing your cell turnover rate, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once we evaluate your skin in person, we can determine whether an OxyGeneo Facial is the right pigment correcting treatment that can help restore a more uniform complexion.
IPL stands for intense pulsed light and is a skincare treatment that uses laser light energy to break down and eliminate discolored skin cells. IPL treatments use pulsated light to heat the skin that’s been affected by melasma and eliminate those patches from your skin. The benefit of IPL is that it can effectively treat and remove melasma without harming any of the surrounding skin or tissue.
Depending on the degree and severity of your particular form of melasma, a chemical peel may be the best treatment to restore uniformity to your skin tone. We offer different chemical peels that can help treat hyperpigmentation and improve your skin health.
At your consultation, one of our skincare experts will evaluate your skin and the degree of hyperpigmentation affecting your skin to determine if one of our chemical peels can help lighten your discoloration and improve your complexion.
PicoGenesis is a powerful and effective laser treatment that can address different forms of hyperpigmentation. It can help address brown spots, melasma, sunspots, age spots, and freckles. During the treatment process, one of our technicians will use the laser to zone in on your treatment area with discoloration and break down the discolored skin cells.
Those damaged, discolored cells will be replaced with newer, healthier cells, and with the recommended number of treatments, you can say goodbye to hyperpigmentation for good. This laser treatment can target discolored spots on the face, neck, hands, or anywhere on the body.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
There are many different reasons why men and women suffer from hyperpigmentation. Different factors can cause your body to create more melanin, which is what makes your skin appear darker and discolored. However, whatever has caused your particular form of hyperpigmentation, we can take the necessary steps to design a customized treatment plan to help restore uniform skin tone to your complexion.
Many women experience different forms of hyperpigmentation throughout their pregnancy. The most common type is a form of melasma that affects the entire face and is commonly referred to as the pregnancy mask. The pregnancy mask causes uneven pigmentation across different areas of the face. It results from a sudden increase in estrogen and progesterone levels which forces the body to create more melanin.
Excess melanin can affect both lighter and darker-skinned women, and sunlight can further aggravate the condition. While you can cover this form of melasma with makeup, you don’t have to live with it long term. If you’ve had your baby and that pregnancy mask isn’t going away, we can design a treatment plan that will help target these areas of hyperpigmentation and improve your complexion long-term.
Hormonal changes and fluctuations can also contribute to the development of melasma. Whether you suffer from hormonal imbalances or changing hormone levels, you may have noticed pigment changes on different areas of your skin and have an uneven skin tone. When the body produces excess pigment, it’s often due to a hormonal change, and experts have traced this hormonal change back to MSH, a melanocyte-stimulating hormone.
Many people, even after taking the necessary steps to balance their hormones, still suffer from melasma, and if that’s the case for you, we can help eradicate this condition and clear your complexion.
Many people don’t think about the consequences that come from years of excess sun exposure until it’s too late. Melasma can develop very quickly, which is why wearing sunscreen is so important. The pigment cells activated when you lay out in the sun are the same cells responsible for giving your skin that tanned appearance. Sometimes, those same cells can result in unwanted melasma, and once it shows up, it’s very hard to treat with at-home products.
Once you start to notice melasma or any form of hyperpigmentation or age spots on your skin, it’s often may feel like it’s too late. However, we have several different treatments that can help reverse melasma-related sun damage and help you achieve beautiful skin.
The aging process can also cause the development of melasma and hyperpigmentation spots and patches on the skin. If you’ve noticed that as you’ve aged, you have more noticeable brown spots or patches on your face or other areas of the body, we can choose the right treatment plan to help restore a youthful and more even skin tone so that you can feel more confident in the appearance of your skin.
Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
Since melasma affects patients in different ways, the best way to determine which one of these melasma and pigment correcting treatments is right for you is by scheduling an initial consultation with one of the experts. This consultation allows us to evaluate your skin in person, learn more about your specific concerns and ultimate skincare goals, and then design your custom-tailored treatment plan.
As we design this plan, we can tell you how many treatments you will need to schedule to achieve the best results and maintain beautiful skin long-term. We will also describe your treatment in detail and provide you with any pre-and post-treatment instructions if necessary. Regardless of how hyperpigmentation has affected your skin, we will find the right treatment for you and help you improve your appearance.
