Hyperpigmentation Reduction

Hyperpigmentation refers to areas of skin where an excess of melanin (“pigmentation”) has been produced and formed deposits, causing skin patches that appear darker than the surrounding skin.  The causes vary from sun exposure, hormonal changes, heredity, acne, botched skin treatments and even uncovered compact fluorescent light bulb exposure.  Any form of unfiltered radiation can create this effect in addition to those causes previously stated.  The most significant concentration of melanin is found between the first (Epidermis) and second (Dermis) layers of skin.

In some circles, these darker areas are referred to as Hyperpigmentation Lesion which is somewhat misleading.  The term “lesion” is the category of Minor Skin Irregularities including Age Spots, Moles, Skin Tags, Xanthomas (Facial Cholesterol Deposits), Fibromas, Milians, Lipoma, Scar Reduction, Cherry Angioma, Cysts, Seborrheic Keratoses.  Most of these lesions present themselves on the surface of the Epidermis or on the surface of an organ within the body.

Just to refresh, the Epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, provides a waterproof barrier.  The Dermis, beneath the Epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.  The deeper subcutaneous tissue (Hypodermis) is comprised of fat and connective (mostly of collagen) tissue.

An Ultrasonic Skin Lightening/Hyperpigmentation Reduction Treatment is one of the safest and yields the best results for the smallest investment with the other treatments being:

  1. Often IPL (Photofacial) – Treatment with Intense Pulsed Light, or a Photofacial, is frequently recommended by health practitioners and estheticians to treat hyperpigmentation. However, improperly administered IPL treatment can make hyperpigmentation worse, so this reduction method is considered
  1. Chemical peels marketed under different names are often used to treat hyperpigmentation. They do an excellent job addressing issues on your Epidermis as they are intended as a surface treatment.  Caution is warranted as an improperly administered chemical peels can result in pigment irregularities and
  1. Laser resurfacing using carbon dioxide (CO2) and fractional lasers. This route is expensive, and in the Province of Ontario, treatments must be administered by physicians. Results vary and scarring often occurs.
  1. Topical skin lightening products containing skin lightening ingredients, such as hydroquinone, retinoids, kojic acid, and Vitamin C serum are often used to reduce hyperpigmentation.

We treat all areas of the body where Hyperpigmentation appears be it on the face, arm pits, body and even in the pelvic region.

The best value and method is found at Beauty-Full Spa where a combination of topical skin lightening agents including a Vitamin C serum are pushed deep into the pigmentation layers via ultrasonic waves that allow the lightening ingredients to absorb the pigmentation far more effectively than just applying to the skin’s surface, the Epidermis.  Additional benefits include improving circulation, evenness in the skin’s tone, with immediate results in just one to three treatments.

Pricing varies on this service as it depends on the size of the area being treated.  We offer a free consultation to evaluate your particular areas of concern.  If you are travelling a great distance to see us, you may wish to send us a very clear high definition picture (a close-up and a shot from 12″/30.5 cm) which can be sent via text to 647-891-2636 or via email to info@beautyfullspa.ca. An example of pricing:  treatment of area located in both armpits would be $95 per treatment or a five pack treatment package at $425.  The price given to you may be more or less depending on the size of the area being treated.

At Beauty-Full Spa, both our in-office treatment and home care Vitamin C is a stable formulation, meaning it will not evaporate or alter before absorbing into your skin.  Use of this method allows the ultrasonic waves to push this unique formulation into the deepest pigmented areas giving you the fastest results.  The Vitamin C Serum used in Beauty-Full Spa’s treatments helps to brighten skin and boosts collagen health, minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the appearance of uneven skin tone. Intensely moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid plus nonoxidizing Vitamin C work together to protect skin from environmental stresses, helping to prevent signs of ageing. Soothing Aloe and Vitamin E deeply moisturize for a rejuvenated you.

For those of you who need to know how it works, this is the simplest explanation.  The ultrasonic waves create a process called cavitation.  The ultrasonic waves stimulate a transformation of the formulation containing the Vitamin C and other agents into bubbles sitting on your skin’s surface that are vibrated until they hit a predetermined threshold.  This is why having a stable form of Vitamin C is imperative.  Next is the occurrence of an imploding that transfers the bubbles into millions of microscopic jets of liquid that are shot deep into the pigmented areas being treated.  This creates a chemical reaction, and the content of the pigmented cells are neutralized and disposed of in the lymphatic system which results in the lighting of the tissue.  Depending on the concentration of the pigmented cells will determine how many treatments may be required to obtain the results where the previous pigmented area shall appear the same as the surrounding evenly pigmented skin.

This treatment was very effective on an area I had on my upper right arm. It was really dark and it took about 10 sessions to my skin tone even. Very pleased.
