Treatments for dark spots and pigmentation

What’s right for you? You can trust our team of medical and aesthetic experts at Skin Matrx to advise you of the most effective treatment to create evenly-toned skin, free from sun spots, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation affecting your appearance.

What treatments are available?

At Skin MatRX, we offer various therapies to create evenly-toned skin, free from hyperpigmentation. The first step is to evaluate your skin in a private consultation. Your treatment may be one or a combination of treatments, which may include:

  • IPL photofacial: This treatment works to remove the excess skin pigment causing age spots, sun spots, darkened areas, freckles, or melasma, as well as spider veins.
  • Chemical peels: A chemical peel will remove the top layers of the skin to reveal fresh skin, free from excess melanin, or skin pigment.
  • Laser therapy: Pulsed laser treatments can target dark spots and pigmentation, as well as broken capillaries, visible birthmarks, red spots, and other skin flaws.
  • Microdermabrasion: This treatment works to exfoliate the skin by removing the top layer of the skin, which can aid in fading areas of hyperpigmentation.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling can significantly improve your skin quality. The micro-injuries created during the treatment trigger natural regeneration, which can be a helpful adjunct in treating hyperpigmentation.
  • Morpheus8: Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge device with 24 microns that penetrate up to 4 millimeters into the skin to activate skin cell regeneration. As the microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface, they also deliver concentrated radiofrequency waves into the underlying layers to activate collagen production. The damaged and old skin tissues with the dark spots and pigmentation problems gradually get replaced by new and even-textured skin tissues.

How long will it take to recover after removing dark spots?

The recovery time will reflect which treatment was selected for you.

  • Recovery from an IPL photofacial: After this treatment, the skin may be reddened or slightly swollen. You should not need time off from work and can apply cosmetics to hide these side effects. The pigmented areas will rise to the surface of your skin and flake off, typically within one to two weeks.
  • Recovery from a chemical peel: Chemical peels are available in various formulas, and the recovery time may vary. Generally, you can expect four to seven days of skin peeling. Your skin may be reddened for longer, which you can cover with cosmetics.
  • Recovery from microneedling: Your skin may be reddened or slightly swollen, similar to a sunburn, and you may see pinpoint bleeding, or tiny bruises. The results take several weeks to appear, as the skin regenerates.
  • Recovery from laser therapy: If you undergo a comprehensive laser skin resurfacing treatment, your skin may be swollen for 24 to 48 hours, along with some itching or stinging. The treated layer of skin will peel off within five to seven days following your treatment. You will need to avoid sun exposure and follow all aftercare instructions regarding cleansing, moisturizing, and sunscreen.
  • Recovery from microdermabrasion: You should not need any significant recovery time after this treatment. Your skin may appear flushed, which will fade in the hours following your treatment. No swimming, hot tubs, or bathing in a very hot shower until your skin has recovered.
