3 Common Treatments for Facial Hyperpigmentation Issues
When it comes to skin issues, there are quite a few different issues that we must be concerned about, as the vast majority of individuals have fairly sensitive facial skin that is highly susceptible to outside factors such as the wind, rain, as well as the sun. In addition to certain weather-related factors, there are also other factors that can cause discoloration issues along the skin, including certain skincare products that might react poorly to other creams, as well as to your overall facial chemistry in general. At Goals Plastic Surgery, Dr. Voskin and his team, while mostly specializing in facial plastic surgery procedures, the fact is that they also offer a number of medical spa type treatments as well, to help tame lesser issues such as acne, skin discolorations and more. And while facial plastic surgery offers its many benefits, the fact is that it doesn’t offer much in terms of help with the all-too-common hyperpigmentation issues amongst women in the summer months. To better help patients to understand how they can deal with hyperpigmentation issues and skin discolorations, here are a few of the most popular and highly effect methods available now at Goals – Laser Skin Resurfacing, DermapenMicroneedling treatment, and Ultherapy skin rejuvenation.
· Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a type of skin care procedure performed by a dermatologist or physician. It involves using lasers to help improve skin texture and appearance.Depending on your individual needs, your physician may recommend either ablative or non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers include carbon dioxide (CO2) or Erbium. CO2 laser resurfacing treatments are used to get rid of scars, warts, and wrinkles. Erbium is used for finer lines and wrinkles, along with other superficial skin concerns. Both types of ablative lasers remove outside layers of the skin.Non-ablative lasers, on the other hand, don’t remove any skin layers. These include pulsed light, pulsed-dye lasers, and fractional lasers. Non-ablative lasers may be used for rosacea, spider veins, and acne-related skin concerns. Considering these different types of lasers that are used for laser skin resurfacing, the fact of the matter is that, when each layer of skin is removed, the unwanted discolorations are removed as well. As with each new layer that is removed, the hyperpigmentation issues are reduced, in addition, as the skin is removed, it triggers the production of collagen and elastin which help individuals to resurface their skin and replace damaged, discolored skin with newer, and more clean, clear skin.
As one of the foremost methods of laser treatment therapy, Ultherapy is a highly effective method of overall skin rejuvenation for both the face and the body. Some of the best aspects of Ultherapy is the fact that patients are able to completely restore older layers of unwanted, often damaged skin, while helping to stimulate the process of skin cell rejuvenation. As the older, damaged, discolored skin that’s suffering from unwanted hyperpigmentation issues, is removed slowly, layer by layer, the Ultherapy process stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two of the most vital skincare proteins that help to formulate the skin’s connective tissue, leading to new skin cells to replace the damaged ones. This can help deal with issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and much more.
· DermapenMicroneedling Treatment
At Goals Plastic Surgery, one of the best and most effective treatments for reducing the presence of unwanted hyperpigmentation issues along the skin’s surface, has go to be dermapenmicroneedling treatment. This specialized method of skin rejuvenation works by using the body’s natural regenerative nature, to replace dull, damaged skin, and replaces them with quality skin cells. By making a series of controlled cuts along the skin’s surface, on specific areas in which the discolorations and hyperpigmentation issues occur, we are able to kill off the outer layers of skin which may be affected by discolorations, acne scars, infections, and other blemishes, with freshly generated, newer skin cells that will help take the place.
The fact is that most facets of skin rejuvenation work by removing the skin’s outer layers, and relying on the skin’s rejuvenating efforts to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and connective tissue to restore it.
