Hyper-Pigmentation Consultation

30 minutes

Schedule a consult to determine if and how we can help with your your hyper-pigmentation concerns. Includes a skin analysis, sensitivity test, pigment-type assessment, and recommendations for treatment and homecare.

 

Hyper-pigmentation is not a skin type, but a challenging skin condition brought on by two very different components. Clearing or suppressing the discoloration requires knowledge of your type of hyper-pigmentation.

 

Hyper-pigmentation from external factors such as Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) occurs on more of a superficial, topical level. This type of hyper-pigmentation occurs from topical trauma left from acne, razor bumps, cuts, chicken pox, picking & scratching, insect bites, surgical procedures and also from the sun, known as age spots.

 

Hyper-pigmentation from internal factors is known as Melasma or pregnancy mask. This is much more challenging to "clear" and often requires "control". Birth control pills & IUD's, estrogen (HRT), pregnancy, certain prescription medications, thyroid issues, adrenal and liver issues can cause systemic hyper-pigmentation. The sun always makes it worse but is not the creator of the melasma.

 

Treatment results will vary greatly depending on whether discoloration is at a cellular or superficial level and types of treatment and use of home care.

Peels:  A series of 6 light peels every 2 weeks OR a series of 3 mid depth peels every 4 weeks depending on your needs and your concerns. We will recommend.

Product:  Product is not included.  Expect to pay approximately $200-$225 for home care correction.
