Uneven skin tones and brown spots can be caused by many factors; it can be anything from sun exposure to hormones to acne scarring. This hyper-pigmentation occurs when too much melanin is produced, causing brown or dark patches of skin to appear. Pigmentation issues are caused deep in the skin so the first step is reaching this deep dermal layer of skin. Dermasweep MD Epi-Infusion Treatments use a precision exfoliating bristle combined with simultaneous topical delivery of a medical-grade lightening serum to effectively treat your aging pigmentation problems. Small particles passing through a vacuum tube remove the top layer of the skin and will help to stimulate new cell growth and remove pigmentation. It is safe and painless and has no downtime!
Dr. Wright’s Tip
For women, age spots and melasma are the most common forms of hyper-pigmentation. Melasma usually appears as small dark patches on the cheeks, forehead or jawline. It is particularly common to see in pregnant women due to hormones. Age spots, also known as liver spots, are darkened spots on the skin generally associated with aging and sun exposure. As the body gets older the skin is less able to recover from damaging sun exposure, and this is why pigmentation problems appear more typically as we age – thus people think you are old! Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, or PIH, is also a common problem for acne sufferers – characterized by dark or red spots most often left behind after acne lesions have healed.
In my DermaSweep Epi-Infusion Treatments, I have incorporated a Skin Lightening Solution which consists of Kojic Acid, Azelaic, Lactic, Bearberry, and Licorice. These potent medical-grade ingredients have been blended to inhibit the formation of new pigment, to remove pigment that already exists and to help with acne scarring. Because of the high absorption of the Epi-Infusion serums into the skin, they are very effective in improving the skin’s appearance.
