Best Cleveland Pigmentation Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Hyperpigmentation treatment options in Cleveland, Ohio

Hyperpigmentation is a broad term that refers to discolored or darkened skin. Changes in skin tone can occur from sun damage, acne scarring, and inflammation. The most common type of hyperpigmentation people struggle with is melasma, most prevalent on the face in areas like the forehead, chin, and cheeks.

What causes hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by the increased production of a pigment called melanin by cells within the skin called melanocytes. Triggers like sunlight, acne, rashes, and air pollutants all have the potential to stimulate these melanocytes, creating a surplus of pigment within the skin. Increased production of melanin eventually accumulates and can result in noticeable darkening of the skin.

What is the best treatment for hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation generally responds to a variety of over-the-counter products that contain brightening agents like vitamin C, kojic acid, niacinamide, hydroquinone, and azelaic acid. Melasma is a more stubborn version and may require a multi-step combination of sunscreen, brightening ingredients, and chemical or laser treatments. If topical treatments don’t provide lasting results, hyperpigmentation is most effectively treated with chemical peels or laser treatments.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
