Hyperpigmentation treatment for dark, discolored skin in Niagara Falls, ON.
Face Hyperpigmentation

Those who struggle with hyperpigmentation have likely tried all the home remedy options out there, and there are a ton of them. Whether you’ve been slathering apple cider vinegar and green tea extract on your skin for some time now or you’re simply thinking there’s got to be a better way, trust us- there is! Hyperpigmentation is a common issue that can be referred to as benign pigmented lesions, that affects people of all skin types. The team at New Creation MediCosmetic Centre is very familiar with how to treat this cosmetic concern.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is simply a term that describes darkened skin, typically referring to patches that appear darker than the skin around them. However, hyperpigmentation can sometimes occur in large patches, covering many areas of the body. Typically seen as harmless, hyperpigmentation is usually considered to be a cosmetic issue as opposed to a medical issue, although in some rare cases it can signal an underlying medical condition.

How do we treat this at NCMC?

Over time, patches of skin can develop into dark spots on your body. These spots, called hyperpigmentations, affect millions of people around the world. Regardless of the skin type, all hyperpigmentations stem from a surplus of pigments. Many unconventional home remedies for treating pigments include slathering apple cider vinegar and green tea extract to no avail. Hyperpigmentation or benign pigmented lesions can be removed by breaking the pigment down using concentrated laser light. The Cutera Enlighten laser system can effectively treat hyperpigmentation through PICO Genesis.

Types of hyperpigmentation include:

  • Sun spots are sometimes referred to as liver spots or age spots which typically appear as a result of excessive exposure to the sun over time.
  • Melasma is a hormone related either due to pregnancy or birth control.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is usually second to inflammation of the skin or injury e.g. acne hyperpigmentation.

How does PICO Genesis work?

Pigments can be removed by breaking them down using concentrated laser light.

Because different skin types & different skin pigments require different wavelengths, our highly acclaimed PicoGenesis takes advantage of both Pico & Nanotechnology, a triple wavelength ( 532nm,670nm, and 1064 nm) and different pulse rates & spot sizes.  The system allows us to customize the laser setting on the fly from one spot to the other, allowing us to customize the treatment as we go.

Pico Genesis is a  strong, non-thermal, photomechanical effect with high-peak power and ultra-short pulse durations that shatter the targeted pigment without causing thermal damage to the tissue that surrounds it. This makes it an ideal solution for the treatment of challenging skin and optimizes our signature skin revitalization treatment – PICO Genesis of all skin types and pigments.

What areas can be treated?

PICO Genesis can be performed on any area of the body with hyperpigmentation. Common areas include the face, neck and chest.

What does this procedure feel like?

Relatively painless. Most describe the sensation as no worse than the snap of a rubber band in the skin.

What is the treatment recovery process?

The Enlighten system uses a cooler laser than most systems, cutting down on recovery time & making the treatment accessible for those with more sensitive skin.
