Spending a lot of time outside can help you achieve a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle, but over time sun exposure can leave the skin with dark spots, freckling and uneven tone. This is also known as hyperpigmentation and the sun isn’t the only reason we see this cosmetic skin concern appear. Conditions that cause inflammation such as acne or burns can cause over activity in the melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing pigmentation in the skin. Hyperpigmentation affects some skin types more than others and can be treated effectively to reduce uneven dark patches. Our office provides advanced radiofrequency microneedling treatments that target layers deep within the skin. This helps to diminish hyperpigmented areas and restore signs of aging or sun damage for a smooth, even skin tone.
