If you have hyperpigmentation then you already know that it is a stubborn skin issue that can be challenging to treat. So you’ve probably asked yourself the question – How can I treat hyperpigmentation. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can successfully address the problem.
What is hyperpigmentation and why do you get it?
Hyperpigmentation refers to dark patches or spots on the skin, which are typically caused by an excess production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its color.
Hyperpigmentation is often caused by overexposure to the UV rays of the sun, but acne and hormone fluctuations can also cause dark patches to develop on the skin. Common types of hyperpigmentation include sunspots, melasma patches, and age spots.
How Can I Treat Hyperpigmentation?
Sciton BBL (Broad band light) is one of the most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation. BBL is a light system that delivers light energy that heats the upper layer of the skin. The heat is absorbed and breaks down the pigments that make up the dark patches on the skin. BBL also stimulates the production of collagen, which makes the skin firmer, and reduces the appearance of brown spots.
There is no downtime after BBL, but the skin may appear somewhat red and flushed for a few hours.
How many BBL treatments do you need?
The number of BBL treatments needed to successfully remove hyperpigmentation varies. Depending on the extent of the hyperpigmentation, patients can expect to undergo a series of sessions to achieve the desired results.
