Let’s face it: there’s no such thing as perfect skin.
Everyone deals with their own problems including acne, discoloration, melasma, rosacea, redness, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation, and that’s normal. But where there’s normal skin, there’s also room for improvement.
For every skin issue, there are a handful of potential solutions. Today, we’re going to discuss hyperpigmentation & our favorite way to treat it at Facetté.
To all of you who have wondered: “Does microneedling help with hyperpigmentation?”, the answer is YES.
Let’s talk about it.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation & Skin Discoloration?
Essentially, hyperpigmentation is caused by an overproduction of melanin in the skin. With too much pigmentation, the skin may appear darker or discolored in certain areas. This excess can happen as a result of…
- Unprotected, prolonged sun exposure
- Pregnancy (and hormone changes that result)
- Certain medications
The point is: hyperpigmentation is a common issue that many men and women experience and can treat effectively. There are a handful of treatments that can reduce or eliminate dark spots or uneven tones in the skin, but our tried-and -rue method? RF (Radio Frequency) Microneedling.
How Does RF Microneedling Help with Hyperpigmentation?
This service is often used to tighten the skin, brighten the tone, and encourage new collagen and elastin production.
Using the RF Microneedling tool, our trained medical aestheticians will insert tiny, sterile needles into the dermis of the skin. These precise punctures create microscopic channels deep within the dermis, so we can deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths, further propelling the process and allowing the collagen and elastin to remodel for skin tightening.
Not only does this controlled skin-injury trigger the skin’s wound-healing process, but it speeds cell turnover and breaks up that excess hyperpigmentation.
As you can imagine, this treatment does not produce results overnight. Immediately following treatment, you may notice your skin tighten, but the real results start to show over the next 4-6 weeks, as your skin does what it does best.
Some Added Benefits of RF Microneedling
The great part about RF Microneedling is the benefits are multi-tiered! While it treats hyperpigmentation and discoloration in the skin, it also reduces fine lines, improves texture, minimizes the appearance of pores, and overall brightens the skin.
With this treatment, you’re actually encouraging and accelerating something that happens naturally, so the results are long-lasting.
Keep in mind, however, it may take several sessions to achieve your desired tone.
