How To Get Rid Of Hyperpigmentation

Professional treatments recommended for hyperpigmentation listed here.


Laser therapy has revolutionized the field of dermatology and is now considered a go-to treatment for hyperpigmentation. THE CUTERA EXCELV+ uses a 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths to target and break down excessive melanin clusters, effectively reducing hyperpigmentation. Laser treatments are precise, customizable, and non-invasive, making them an ideal choice for anyone seeking significant improvement in their skin’s appearance. At our clinic, we primarily use the Global 532nm treatment with the ExcelV+ for hyperpigmentation.


Chemical peels have long been utilized to treat various skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation. This procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the top layer to peel off, revealing a fresh layer of skin underneath. Chemical peels can effectively minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation, as well as improve skin texture and tone, leaving you with a radiant and youthful glow. Our favourite peel is the Jessner Peel, as it contains a higher concentration of exfoliating acids, hich minimal peeling and downtime.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a handheld device studded with tiny needles. These needles create tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating collagen production while also allowing for better absorption of topical treatments. In the case of hyperpigmentation, microneedling can help reduce pigmentation irregularities such as sun spots/age spots, and melasma, revealing a more even complexion over time.


Microdermabrasion is a physical, non-invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin’s surface to remove dead skin cells and reveal fresh, rejuvenated skin. This treatment can brighten the skin by smoothing away dead skin cells. Hydrodermabrasion is another technique in which we infuse medical-grade serums into the skin while we exfoliate. The BelaMD is our preferred platform for this treatment as we can target sun spots with brightening serums.


Similar to microdermabrasion, dermaplaning instantly brightens the complexion by removing dead skin cells and fine hairs from the surface of the skin, which instantly brightens the skin tone.
