What are the Best Treatments for Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is another way of saying brown spots. It can be caused by sun damage, scars, aging and a history of acne or inflammation. There are a variety of treatments that we recommend for eliminating hyperpigmentation and revealing a brighter, clearer complexion, but a consultation is essential to develop the best course of action for you. Some of our favorite treatments for getting rid of brown spots include:

  • BBL Hero & MOXI: The BBL Hero is a photofacial that uses broadband light technology to quickly lighten or eliminate the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Wink also uses MOXI to reduce hyperpigmentation and melasma, which is suitable for all skin tones and types, including darker skin tones.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels reduce hyperpigmentation by exfoliating the skin and encourage superficial pigments to shed. Wink offers a variety of strengths and combinations, including the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel, the VI Peel and WiQo’s PRX-T33 Peel. Our team can help determine the best peel for your skin.
  • CONTOUR TRL: If you have discoloration caused by aging or sun damage, the CONTOUR TRL laser can help target these concerns to restore a clearer complexion.
  • SkinMedica’s Lytera Pigment Correcting Serum: This is a medical-grade topical that improves overall skin condition, evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of discoloration. With Lytera, 79% of patients reported an improvement in the evenness of their skin tone after 12 weeks, while 95% reported an improvement in overall skin condition after 12 weeks. Results can be seen in as little as 28 days.
    • Unlike other topicals, Lytera is safe to use with a laser, chemical peels and other treatments to optimize your results. It can be used in combination with the BBL Hero photofacial and melanin suppressants like hydroquinone.
  • Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone 4% is a prescription skin lightener that works from the inside out to suppress melanin production. Consultation and Rx required.
