Hyperpigmentation treatment by Dr. Nassir
Since hyperpigmentation occurs when the body uses a surplus of melanin while growing skin, breaking down the pigment removing the offending layer gives skin the chance to regrow at a more even coloration. Using the Cutera Xeo system gives our technicians the ability to customize the laser wavelength to your skin, allowing them simultaneously fade the skin color and promote healthy new skin growth.
Different forms of hyperpigmentation require a different amount of sessions. Our experienced staff will work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for your body and your needs. Sessions are relatively painless, causing only slight discomfort, and our team will be there with you the whole way, helping you manage the process and giving you advice on how best to help your body heal naturally.

What is hyperpigmentation?
The simple term for hyperpigmentation is just unevenly pigmented skin. It happens when a part of your skin becomes darker or lighter than the area around it due to a larger or smaller amount of melanin than is present the rest of your skin. A variety of events can cause your skin to develop these patches, such as rashes, acne, hormonal imbalance or traumatic injuries.
Hyperpigmentation can happen to any age group, sex or race, and even though it won’t harm you it can be unsightly. They can also be a stark reminder of the pains of the past.
These patches used to be permanent and incurable. While some forms of it can be treated using other methods, more resistant types such as melasma can take root deep in the skin, making them difficult to remove.
Why you should treat hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is not necessarily an indication of underlying health issues, but it can create issues from a cosmetic point of view. The pigmentation will not always fade away with time, and there is a risk of the patches darkening further if not protected from excess sunlight. If you are conscious of the discoloration on your skin, then our hyperpigmentation treatment is for you.
