Types of Hyperpigmentation

Brown spots occur when your body is no longer able to regulate melanin. When your skin is overexposed to the sun, it attempts to create melanin, resulting in overproduction. Hormones can also lead to an excess of melanin with pigmentation deposits or melasma, also known as “the mask of pregnancy.” Types of hyperpigmentation include:

  • Age spots
  • Liver spots
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Post-inflammatory marks (as from acne scars)

Effective treatment for brown spots and sun damage in Kirkland, WA

One of the most popular and effective treatments for brown spots and hyperpigmentation is the IPL photofacial. IPL photofacials work by emitting specific light wavelengths into the skin. These wavelengths are designed to target particular pigments and pigment-producing cells. This energy destroys hyperactive pigment-producing cells causing them to eventually flake off revealing beautiful, youthful, evenly-toned skin.
