Lacklustre, Blotchy, Uneven.
Does your skin have a dull and uneven tone?
Pigmentation occurs from repeated exposure of the skin to ultraviolet (UV) rays and is one of the main contributors of an aged appearance. Procedures such as BBL photofacial (IPL therapy), HALO, & microneedling can help safely and effectively erase this dyschromia and offer comprehensive hyperpigmentation treatment near Naperville.
About Pigmentation & Sun Damage
The medical term used to describe sun spots or age spots is solar lentigos. They are formed in areas that receive repeated sun exposure and manifest as dark or light colored marks. This is due to an overproduction of melanin by melanocytes when our skin absorbs UV rays, and is also known as hyperpigmentation.
Continuous sun exposure will result in irregular and uneven coloring of the skin, and blotchiness. This gives skin a dull tone as the melanin rich areas will begin to deflect light. Though sun spots are harmless, be mindful of changing lesions, or new spots, and get your skin screened regularly.
BBL Photofacial treatment
The BBL photofacial by Sciton is a popular rosacea treatment near Naperville and effectively alleviates the redness and overall flushing caused by tiny blood vessels. Within the BroadBand Light spectrum, there are wavelengths that will target the hemoglobin in the abnormal blood vessels, creating an intense amount of heat that will coagulate them. After healing, they are no longer visible and skin looks brighter, clearer and more even-toned.
HALO Laser Skin Resurfacing
The HALO laser is a revolutionary treatment that combines an ablative and non-ablative wavelength to effectively eradicate multiple concerns that the skin can present. HALO laser skin resurfacing is a great way to remove pigmentation found in the epidermal & dermal layers.
Microneedling creates tiny micro-injuries within the skin that trigger its natural wound healing response. As the skin cells regenerate, the clusters of melanin will disperse, thereby lightening the dark spots.
Chemical peels are available in different strengths, mild, medium & deep. Depending on the severity of the sun damage and pigmentation, we can determine the best option for your skin.
We offer Alastin & ZO skincare products at our clinic for proper maintenance of your skin after your rejuvenating skin treatments at our facility. These products don’t contain fillers and are packed with active ingredients that deliver preventative, restorative & protective benefits to your skin long term.
Frequently Asked Questions.
How many hyperpigmentation treatments near Naperville will I need?
The number of treatments will vary based on how extensive the pigmentation is. For lighter Fitzpatrick skin tones, the BBL photofacial offers unparalleled results in just 1-2 treatments. For our clients that fall higher on the Fitzpatrick spectrum, we offer HALO, microneedling and chemical peels as viable options.
Can you permanently remove sun damage and pigmentation?
Pigmentation that is effectively treated will not resurface. However, new pigment can always form again due to sun exposure, use of certain drugs and hormones.
What is the difference between sun spots and freckles?
Though freckles and sun spots may appear to be similar, there are distinctions between them. Sun spots accurate over age and become prominent later in life due to sun exposure. Freckles appear in children as they grow, and will fade and reappear seasonally, whereas sun spots are permanent. Freckles are not a sign of sun damage, they are found in a skin type that has more sun sensitivity.
