How to treat hyperpigmentation

The skin is a complicated organ. Whilst many of us suffer only mild skin complications as we go through life, for others the skin can be a real problem area. Treating conditions such as hyperpigmentation with non-surgical cosmetic treatments are proving more and more popular, and men and women visit APSARAS Clinic seeking help to improve the effects of conditions such as hyperpigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation is an umbrella term for conditions that may discolour the skin, although the reasons for the hyperpigmentation may vary drastically. Age spots, for example, are darker marks on the skin usually caused by sun damage. These can commonly be found on the face, neck and hands, and are otherwise known as brown spots. They are usually harmless, but can be distressing and unwanted, especially by women.

How can you treat hyperpigmentation?

Once considered difficult to treat effectively, hyperpigmentation (such as age spots) is actually really common and thankfully there are now a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments available for patients.

A consultation prior to non-surgical cosmetic treatments is important as it allows the cosmetic experts to pinpoint the exact problem and how best to treat it. You may be offered a combination of non-surgical cosmetic treatments to get the best results possible.

Non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as chemical skin peels can help to alleviate the signs of sun damage, including hyperpigmentation. There are three strengths of skin peel available and each offers a different result. A chemical solution is applied to the treatment area (such as the face) and the skin is damaged in a controlled way. The newer skin below is exposed and the damaged skin and hyperpigmentation is removed.

Results can be quite impressive, so it’s worth asking Dr. Thevendra and the aesthetic experts at APSARAS Clinic for a full treatment overview.

Skin rejuvenation treatments can also help to reduce the discolouration associated with hyperpigmentation. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are reliable and most patients are left satisfied post-treatment.

Unlike surgery, non-surgical cosmetic treatments are safer and require little or no downtime. Recovery times vary between non-surgical cosmetic treatments, but you can be sure at APSARAS Clinic we will take good care of you, treating your hyperpigmentation efficiently and with the least amount of downtime possible.

Choosing non-surgical cosmetic treatments

These non-surgical cosmetic treatments generally take from 30 minutes to an hour and a half, although this may vary depending on your concerns. Dr. Thevendra will explain your hyperpigmentation treatment options and give you all the information you require during consultation to ensure you’re fully understanding of the non-surgical cosmetic treatments on offer to help you.

Whilst the results cannot rival surgery in terms of longevity and so on, they are a viable for of facial rejuvenation for many patients. Whether non-surgical skin improvement treatments are right for you depends on your concerns, and what you wish to achieve both immediately and in the long run.
