Like many women and men, you may have noticeable dark spots, sun spots, melasma, or other forms of hyperpigmentation that make you feel self-conscious or that you conceal with makeup every day.

 

If you want to banish skin discoloration and restore a clear, even, and radiant complexion, Spectra, Clarity, and customized chemical peels can help.

What Causes Pigmented Lesions?

 

Pigmented lesions are spots that are brown, black or blue in color. They can be caused by a variety of factors including those that are natural (aging and genetics) or environmental (sun damage) in nature. Additionally, certain medications and medical procedures can lead to the formation of pigmented lesions.

 

What Are the Different Types of Pigmented Lesions?

 

Pigmented lesions can vary in shape, size, prominence and may present as pigment-related birthmarks, age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis and pigmented nevi.

 

Pigmented Lesions Treatment Options

 

Many women and men seek in-office treatments in order to address pigmented lesions that have not responded to topical products.

 

At Vitality MedSpa, we are pleased to offer Spectra Laser Treatment, Clarity Laser Treatment, and Customized Chemical Peels to target and eliminate unwanted melasma, sun spots, age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

 

As noninvasive energy-based devices, Spectra and Clarity both rely on selective photothermolysis in order to effectively diminish hyperpigmented spots. More specifically, these technologies deliver light-based energy that is absorbed by melanin and then converted to heat. The applied heat then breaks up pigment, without harming surrounding skin or structures.

 

Comparatively, chemical peels use medical-grade acid solutions in order to remove the top layer of damaged skin, while also promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. They are able to produce visible improvement in skin tone and clarity with little to no downtime.
