Integrated Dermatology Group of Reston

Hyperpigmentation on your face, while harmless, can be a frustrating condition to have.  You may feel self-conscious or like you can’t leave the house without makeup.  For many, these dark spots can increase with age or time spent in the sun.  At Integrated Dermatology of Reston, we have several options for hyperpigmentation treatment in Reston, VA that can help to remove dark spots and give you a more even complexion.

Can Hyperpigmentation Be Removed? 

Yes, there are a variety of treatments that can help to remove hyperpigmentation and brown spots.  These range from topical skincare to prescription medications to lasers for hyperpigmentation treatment in Reston, VA.

At Integrated Dermatology of Reston, we have two preferred options for improving the appearance of dark spots on your face.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

This treatment uses broad-spectrum light to target pigmented areas of the skin.  Following treatment your brown spots will darken, but don’t worry!  After 7-14 days they will flake off, leaving you with clearer skin.  Most patients need three to six treatments for optimal results.  This treatment is non-invasive and has minimal downtime.  We recommend scheduling sessions for the fall, winter, and spring months to minimize sun exposure during your treatment.

PicoSure Laser

You may be familiar with PicoSure laser for tattoo removal.  Similarly, it can be used to target unwanted pigment in the skin with short pulses for laser energy.  Your customizable treatment with PicoSure will be quick and downtime is minimal.  Over time following treatment, you’ll notice the dark spots on your face fading away through the body’s natural healing process.  Most patients need three treatments to reach their desired results.  

Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Reston, VA
