Skin pigmentation is greatly influenced by our exposure to the sun. Those who spend a lot of time outdoors can experience serious hyperpigmentation issues if precautions are not taken. Treatment options are available if you’ve noticed the appearance of brown spots, sun damage, or freckles on your skin. Here at our Newport Beach office, we offer IPL Photofacials, Laser Genesis™, Excel V+ Coolview™ laser, and skincare products to help you get the skin you deserve.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
Age and sun exposure are the main factors contributing to brown spots, age spots, and discoloration. As we get older, the quality of our skin declines due to a gradual loss of collagen and other proteins. Active acne, hormonal and genetic factors are also involved. Spending much time in the sun can exacerbate these issues, dotting your face and neck with dark spots.
What Are the Signs?
Hyperpigmentation develops in areas of the body most commonly exposed to the sun. These areas include the face, chest, arms, and legs. Brown and age spots are the most telling signs of hyperpigmentation, but redness and crepey skin can also occur. In some cases, moles may develop and should be evaluated by a doctor.
Treatments for Hyperpigmentation
The most effective treatment for your skin will depend on the extent of your pigmentation issues and their location. At-home care with medical-grade skincare products can effectively exfoliate your facial skin, calm the pigment cells and facilitate renewal. For more severe problems, we add laser sessions or IPL Photofacial, treating your skin with energy pulses targeting pigment cells and stimulating collagen production.
