Skin hyperpigmentation can be the result of a number of factors, a few of which are beyond your control. On your face, hyperpigmentation can wreak havoc on your appearance and confidence.
But you don’t have to live with uneven skin tone and dark spots due to sun damage, acne, or even your hormones. Facials — yes, facials — can help to treat hyperpigmentation and improve your skin’s appearance and texture.
At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Dr. Nasrin Ejtemaee, and master esthetician Massie Zekri offer a range of cosmetic and aesthetic services at our clinic in Ashburn, Virginia.
How a facial can treat your hyperpigmentation
There are many different types of facials for different skin types and such complexion problems as hyperpigmentation. Getting the right facial for your skin type guarantees the best results.
If you have sensitive skin, for example, a treatment that’s too strong can do more harm than good. On the flip side, if the treatment is too mild, you may not get the results you need.
Depending on the severity and underlying cause of your hyperpigmentation, we recommend the best facial and dermatological treatment for your skin type. Facials are a powerhouse skin treatment for some of the most common problems that plague otherwise healthy skin.
If your dark spots are the result of common skin irritants like acne, sun damage, or the effects of the normal aging process, a facial can:
- Even out your skin tone
- Minimize the appearance of dark spots
- Provide a deep cleanse
- Pack your skin with much-needed nutrients and hydration
How to manage your risk of hyperpigmentation
While you may not be able to avoid developing dark spots and hyperpigmentation, there are a few things you can do to protect your skin from damaging environmental factors.
For starters, sunscreen is your skin’s best friend when it comes to avoiding hyperpigmentation and other skin damage caused by sun exposure. This is true for all skin types and shades.
If you have acne-prone skin, keeping your acne under control and finding the right skin care routine for your needs also helps to lower your risk of developing dark spots and scarring.
