Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Vienna, Virginia

A woman with hyperpigmentation.

A vibrant complexion not only looks healthy but also radiates a beautiful glow. When hyperpigmentation disrupts this natural radiance, there are treatments that can help you reclaim a clear skin tone. At NewEra Medical Aesthetics and Laser Center, we use many different hyperpigmentation treatments to help our patients get the glow back in their skin.

With years of experience across Europe and the United States, we have developed a deep understanding of skin diversity and its challenges. Our hyperpigmentation treatments in Vienna reduce various forms of hyperpigmentation on a wide range of skin tones, including those with darker skin.

What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition characterized by the overproduction of melanin, resulting in darker patches on the skin compared to the surrounding areas. It can manifest in different forms, such as melasma, which presents as blotchy patches often triggered by hormonal changes, sun spots caused by UV radiation, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that occurs after skin damage or inflammation.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can be triggered by several factors beyond direct sunlight exposure, which accelerates melanin synthesis. Certain medications and hormonal treatments can disturb the body’s normal pigment production, leading to uneven skin tones. Additionally, injuries to the skin such as abrasions or the aftereffects of acne breakouts can also lead to post-inflammatory changes in skin coloration.

What Is a Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

Our hyperpigmentation treatment plans consist of techniques, treatments, and products that work together to remove discoloration from the skin. Skin discoloration is often very difficult to treat at home with topical products alone. A hyperpigmentation treatment plan can do what your products cannot by targeting the discolored skin cells and removing them from the skin tissue.

What Are the Benefits of Hyperpigmentation Treatments?

  • Enhanced Brightness, Uniformity, and Glow: A hyperpigmentation treatment revitalizes your skin by diminishing dark spots and evening out your skin tone. This process enhances the natural brightness and glow of your complexion, giving it a more uniform appearance.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Regular skin pigmentation treatments can smooth out irregularities and give you an improved skin texture. Over time, the skin feels softer and appears more refined.
  • Reduction in Other Signs of Aging: Treatments like dark spot removal not only focus on uneven skin tone but also mitigate other aging signs such as fine lines and uneven skin texture. These benefits contribute to a more youthful appearance, complementing the even skin tone achieved through treatment.
  • Customizable and Combinable: Skin lightening treatments can be tailored to suit various skin types and conditions, and they can be combined with other skincare treatments for enhanced effects. With these treatments, you can manage hyperpigmentation and address other concerns in one appointment.

Our Hyperpigmentation Treatments

CO2 Laser Treatments

The CO2 laser is a skin-transforming device that stimulates collagen and elastin production to revitalize the skin while also treating hyperpigmentation. It can remove sun damage, age spots, and other types of discoloration with a high-energy beam of light that removes the superficial layers of the skin. The results from laser skin rejuvenation are long-lasting, and when you take steps to protect your skin from the sun post-treatment, you can enjoy a uniform complexion.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a type of hyperpigmentation treatment that can eliminate superficial layers of the skin to remove dead, damaged, and discolored skin cells. The treatment stimulates natural collagen production and accelerates cellular regeneration. By doing so, the body can replace discolored skin cells with more uniform, healthier, and younger ones. Treatments can improve the appearance of the most common types of discoloration.

Clarity II Laser

Clarity II is a laser treatment that eliminates pigmentation from the skin. It’s safe for all skin types, and the treatment is quick, precise, and effective. It can revitalize the skin by restoring a uniform complexion and eliminating hyperpigmentation. The best results come from several sessions with a few weeks between each.

Hollywood Spectra Laser

The Hollywood Spectra laser is a hyperpigmentation laser treatment that eliminates imperfections from the skin, including discoloration. The device uses state-of-the-art technology to remove unwanted pigment. Patients who want to treat melasma may need up to six sessions with a few weeks between each for the best results. Brown spot removal with the Hollywood Spectra laser is comfortable, takes approximately 60 minutes, and will deliver visible results after patients complete the recommended number of sessions.

IPL Photofacials

Our IPL device uses intense pulsed light to restore a uniform complexion. With different wavelengths of light, it treats discoloration by stimulating collagen and elastin production and encouraging cellular renewal from the inside out. This age spot treatment can be combined with other hyperpigmentation treatments and is quick and comfortable. Patients can expect the best results after completing a series of treatments.

LaseMD Ultra™ 

LaseMD Ultra is a versatile laser treatment for pigmentation by Lutronic®. This device is known for its ability to restore a youthful and uniform complexion. LaseMD Ultra can remove discoloration with specific wavelengths that initiate the body’s natural healing response. We can use it to treat redness, dark spots, and general hyperpigmentation.

Medical-Grade Skincare

When you have hyperpigmentation, you can’t just use any type of medical-grade skincare; you need to use products specifically formulated for dark spot removal and skin brightening. When we meet with you to design a customized hyperpigmentation treatment plan, we will also make medical-grade skin care product recommendations that you can use between your professional treatments.

These products can also maximize the results of your treatment and protect against future discoloration. We offer our NewEra Skincare products and the Alastin line, each of which has options that can promote brighter and younger-looking skin with consistent use.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hyperpigmentation Treatments

What Treatments Can Be Used on the Body?

Many age spot treatments can effectively be used on the body to address hyperpigmentation in areas like the hands, shoulders, and legs. Laser treatments, IPL, and skincare products may all be options to discuss with your doctor. 

How Can I Maintain Bright, Uniform Skin?

Maintaining bright, uniform skin after hyperpigmentation treatments involves a consistent skincare routine that includes gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and the regular use of exfoliants. It’s also crucial to incorporate products specifically designed to prevent pigmentation, such as those containing ingredients like vitamin C or retinoids.

What Type of Sun Protection Should I Use After Sun Spot Treatments?

After hyperpigmentation treatment, make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. This helps protect the skin from further UV damage after a sun spot treatment and maintains the results of your treatment. Reapplying sunscreen every two hours during sun exposure is also recommended, as is seeking shade and avoiding peak sun hours when possible.

How Long Will It Take to See Results After Hyperpigmentation Treatments?

Results from skin discoloration treatments can typically be seen within a few weeks, though it often takes several months to observe full results. The time frame varies depending on the severity of the discoloration and the specific treatment used, such as chemical peels or laser therapy.

Are Hyperpigmentation Treatments Painful?

Brown spot removal and other hyperpigmentation treatments are generally not painful but may cause slight discomfort, depending on the treatment. Lasers and IPL may feel like a snap on the skin, while chemical peels feel more like warmth and stinging. Post-treatment care can alleviate any temporary discomfort and support skin healing.
