Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage

Home » Conditions » Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage

Hyperpigmentation and sun damage are common skin concerns that we address at Gallery of Aesthetics using cutting-edge treatments. Hyperpigmentation refers to darkened patches caused by excess melanin production, while sun damage occurs due to prolonged sun exposure. We offer effective aesthetic treatments, such as chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, and BBL Photofacial, to help you achieve a radiant and rejuvenated complexion.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes controlled exfoliation and peeling. This process removes damaged outer layers, revealing fresh, healthier skin underneath. Chemical peels can effectively treat hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scars, and fine lines, resulting in a smoother, more even-toned complexion.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels work by utilizing specific solutions, such as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), to penetrate the skin. These solutions induce controlled chemical reactions that exfoliate the topmost layer of the skin, encouraging the shedding of damaged pigmented cells. As the skin regenerates, it appears more even-toned and refreshed, diminishing the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

Chemical Peels: Results

The results of chemical peels typically become noticeable within a week or two as the skin heals and reveals a more radiant complexion. The duration of results can vary depending on the individual and the depth of the peel, but they can last for several months to a year. Maintenance treatments are often recommended every few months to maintain the desired outcome.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses focused laser energy to improve the appearance of the skin. It targets specific skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, and scars by removing damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen production. This results in smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works

Laser skin resurfacing emits high-intensity laser beams that penetrate the skin’s surface. These lasers heat the targeted areas, causing controlled damage and prompting the skin’s natural healing response. As the damaged skin is replaced with new cells, the production of melanin is regulated, leading to a reduction in hyperpigmentation. Additionally, the laser stimulates collagen production, resulting in overall skin rejuvenation.

Laser Skin Resurfacing: Results

The results of laser skin resurfacing are typically visible within a few weeks as the skin heals and the treated areas improve in texture and tone. The duration varies based on individual factors and the specific laser used, but it can last several months to a year or more. Maintenance treatments may be recommended every 6-12 months to sustain the outcome.

BBL Photofacial

BBL Photofacial, or Broadband Light Photofacial, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. It delivers targeted pulses of light energy to the skin, stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of various skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, age spots, and redness.

How BBL Photofacial Works

BBL Photofacial works by emitting high-intensity pulses of light energy that target melanin and hemoglobin in the skin. The light is absorbed by these pigments, causing them to break down. This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, gradually reducing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration. Additionally, the treatment stimulates collagen production, improving overall skin tone and texture.

BBL Photofacial: Results

BBL Photofacial results are noticeable within a few weeks as the targeted pigmentation darkens and gradually diminishes. The duration of results can vary depending on individual factors and the extent of the treatment but can last for several months to a year. To achieve optimal results, a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced one month apart, is recommended.
