What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is generally caused by years of sun exposure. As our bodies begin to produce excess melanin, hyperpigmentation can take on the form of sunspots, freckles, and discoloration.
The skin condition is most commonly found in areas that are susceptible to sun exposure like the face, neck, chest, and hands. At Levy Dermatology, we’re able to dramatically fade almost any of your pigmentation concerns with minimally-invasive procedures.

What Treatments Are Available?
At Levy Dermatology, we offer several different hyperpigmentation treatment solutions that can restore your skin without pain and with very little downtime. Some of the most effective treatment options include:
Halo Laser – Halo laser treatments use combined ablative and non-ablative technologies to ensure an optimal outcome with the least amount of downtime possible. With the help of a specialized handpiece, your Levy Dermatology Provider can selectively target your problem areas while also providing total skin rejuvenation.
Chemical Peels – Chemical peels use various acids and other medical chemicals to slough off old, dull skin, and can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sunspots.
Microneedling – Microneedling is the process of creating “micro-injuries” to your skin with a small needle. Often combined with radiofrequency energy to produce heat, it encourages your skin to naturally produce more collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin begins to repair itself, and can even out the tone and color.
DiamondGlow – The DiamondGlow™ procedure can target hyperpigmentation and other skin concerns by gently exfoliating the skin and infusing serums while also treating these specific concerns.
Hydrafacial– A pigmentation-targeting Hydrafacial improves hyperpigmentation by using bioactive serums and vitamins as well as the Glysal and Alastin Skincare® Booster to reduce the appearance of brown marks on the skin, revitalizing dull skin and leaving your skin glowing.
What Results Will I See?
Exact results will vary depending on which treatment your Levy Dermatology Provider determines will be best for you. For most of our hyperpigmentation treatments, patients typically see the most dramatic results in about 2-3 weeks. Gradual improvement will occur for several months with results lasting up to 2 years. You may need to receive touch-up treatments following your initial treatment to maintain your results over time.
Is There Any Down Time?
Treatments for hyperpigmentation can have anywhere from 1-7 days of downtime. After a full skincare evaluation, your Levy Dermatology Provider will create a treatment plan that best suits your individual goals and lifestyle.
