Are You Seeing Spots?

Brown spots, known as Hyperpigmentation, can be frustrating. What products are there to use? What procedures will help to lighten these stubborn spots? Why are my products not working? Ugh! Well in this article we want to address those questions and give you some answers on what really works.

To start treating Hyperpigmentation, you must first understand what it is and why it is there. Each person has melanin within their skin. Melanin is what gives each person their skin coloring. Melanin is also what is responsible for Hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is an increase in melanin. An increased production of melanin occurs due to several factors including hormonal changes, pregnancy, sun exposure, excessive heat exposure to the skin, certain medications, birth control, hormone replacement therapy, injury to the area, and even certain illnesses.

There are effective treatments available to help lessen and diminish the appearance of brown spots. Completely diminishing the brown spots depends on the depth of the melanin and can take a series of treatments. Some of the treatments that are available are:




Combining medical grade skin care products for at home use is essential in combination with in-office procedures. Medical grade skin care products will provide the best results because they have high percentages of active, therapeutic ingredients that deliver results. At Dr. K’s MedSpa we have Obagi, SkinMedica and SkinCeuticals Medical Grade Skin Care Lines. Each skin care line has effective products in treating hyperpigmentation and these products and skin care lines can be used together. Scheduling a free skin care consultation with one of our Aestheticians can help you to create the perfect at home skin care regimen for treating hyperpigmentation. Effective skin care products available at Dr. K’s Med Spa are:

With so many options available, the best place to start is with a consultation. Allowing a Physician, Laser Technician or Professional Aesthetician to observe the area(s) that are of concern will allow them to better recommend a treatment and product recommendation plan specifically tailored to helping you reach your goal in eliminating Hyperpigmentation.
