Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Hyperpigmentation is one of the most common skin concerns, but it’s also difficult to treat at home with professional products and a consistent skincare regimen. At Eternal Beauty Skin Care Clinic in North York, ON, Canada, we offer hyperpigmentation treatment plans that use laser light energy to safely and effectively target and eliminate skin discoloration. We customize pigmentation treatment plans for each patient so they can achieve healthier, uniform skin that they can feel confident about.

What Is Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

Our hyperpigmentation treatment plans aim to restore a uniform skin tone by eliminating the different types of discoloration that affect the skin. Once we meet with each patient to evaluate their skin and specific concerns, we design treatment plans that include a precise number of sessions that will all work together to deliver visible results. We use the Icon MaxG laser by Cynosure® to perform each treatment.

This device is known for its advanced technology that can do what at-home products and DIY treatments cannot by targeting the primary source of discoloration, eliminating discolored skin cells, and replacing them with healthier ones.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

This condition results from an increase in melanin production within the skin. Melanin is responsible for skin pigmentation, and different factors can cause an increase in isolated areas on the face or body, resulting in freckles, brown spots, liver spots, the pregnancy mask, melasma, and other types of hyperpigmentation. Several factors can influence an increase in melanin, including genetics, aging, sun exposure, hormones, pregnancy, the side effects of certain medications, illness, and more. If you’ve dealt with skin discoloration, you know how difficult it is to treat at home, which is why our professional laser pigmentation treatment plans are so popular because they actually work.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

One of the primary benefits of our treatment plans is that they are customized for each patient’s unique needs. Some patients may have a single brown spot they want to treat, while others may have widespread skin discoloration, and we can treat both. Other treatment benefits include the following:
  • Icon MaxG treatments are quick and virtually painless
  • There’s no post-treatment downtime
  • Results appear gradually over time
  • Results are permanent
  • The treatment also delivers skin-rejuvenating results
  • The device can address the most common types of skin discoloration

How Does It Work?

This laser device is an effective pigmentation treatment because it addresses these various types of brown spots at the source. The laser energy is attracted to skin pigmentation. During treatment, we use the device to target it and break down the discolored skin cells without harming any surrounding tissue. In the weeks following your treatment, your body will respond with increased natural collagen and elastin production to heal and rejuvenate the treatment area while also flushing those discolored cells from the system and increasing cellular renewal rate, regenerating new skin cells to replace the discolored ones. You’ll see an improved skin tone in the weeks following as your treatment area heals and your skin regenerates itself.

How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?

One of the best ways to prepare for your treatment is to avoid sun exposure, increase your water intake to ensure you’re adequately hydrated, and temporarily discontinue certain anti-aging products like retinoids, which will increase skin sensitivity during and after treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients benefit from a series of laser treatments. However, we design customized pigmentation treatment plans, so we will need to evaluate your skin in person before determining the total number of sessions you’ll need to schedule to achieve your ideal results. Typically, patients can benefit from at least three sessions with a few weeks between each to effectively eliminate discoloration.

Is There Downtime?

There’s no social downtime after an Icon MaxG laser treatment. Your skin may be sensitive for the first 24 hours and appear red, a completely normal reaction that will subside hours after treatment. You can resume all your normal daily activities after your appointment, but you must continue to avoid sun exposure and wear quality sunscreen to protect your skin, as the laser will make it more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Pigmentation Treatment?

After your first treatment, you’ll see gradual results as your body responds to the laser’s work of removing the discolored skin cells from your treatment area. As your body heals the treatment site, it will replace those discolored skin cells with healthier and younger ones, which can take a few weeks post-treatment. You’ll see gradually improving results after every treatment you schedule, which is why it’s important to be consistent and commit to this process to achieve a uniform complexion and discoloration-free skin.

Am I a Good Candidate?

If you have skin discoloration of any kind that’s detracting from your appearance, and you’re tired of hiding it with cosmetics or investing in topical products that have only limited effect, you may be the perfect candidate for one of our hyperpigmentation treatment plans. We can use this laser to eliminate the common types of skin discoloration, from dark patches, melasma, and freckles to brown spots and everything in between. At your initial consultation, we’ll evaluate your skin, ask questions about your health history, and confirm your treatment eligibility. Then, we can move forward with a completely customized treatment plan that will help restore a uniform skin tone after just a few treatment sessions.

Restore a Uniform Complexion and Healthier Skin

Don’t let hyperpigmentation detract from your natural beauty any longer than it has. Our treatment plans can transform your skin, eliminate all types of brown spots, and help you feel more confident in your appearance. Plus, you’ll experience all the skin-rejuvenating benefits of a skin-perfecting laser treatment.
