Skin Discoloration Q & A

Reflections Aesthetic and Laser Solutions

What Causes Skin Discoloration?

Skin discoloration can occur for numerous reasons. Some people develop areas of discoloration slowly over time, while others notice the sudden onset of patches of lighter or darker skin.

Hyperpigmentation is darkened areas of skin and occurs when your skin contains too much melanin. Here are some common causes of hyperpigmentation:

  • Inflammation of the skin
  • Hemochromatosis, or excessive iron
  • Sun damage
  • Certain medications
  • Hormonal abnormalities
  • Pregnancy

How is Skin Discoloration Treated?

Treatment is provided using the CUTERA® LimeLight IPL and Pico Genesis system. There's no need for anesthesia and treatment time is usually under 30 minutes.

The LimeLight IPL and Pico Genesis systems use intense pulsed light to target darkened areas of skin. The process is painless and requires no recovery. Most people return to work after their appointments.

The equipment used represents state-of-the-art technology. A smooth, handheld device glides over your skin, delivering precisely targeted pulses of light.

Once the procedure is complete, you may experience a small amount of redness or swelling in the treatment area. Your skin may feel and appear slightly sunburned.

How Can I Extend the Results of Skin Discoloration Treatment?

LimeLight IPL and Pico Genesis treatments can improve the appearance of age spots, freckles, redness, or patchy skin discoloration. Once your treatments are complete, you’ll want to enjoy the results for as long as possible.

The effects of your LimeLight IPL and Pico Genesis treatments will last for a considerable period. You can extend those effects by engaging in healthy skincare habits, including:

  • Daily use of high-quality broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher
  • Daily adherence to a quality skin care regimen
  • Avoiding smoking or excessive alcohol consumption
  • Avoiding environmental contaminants
  • Discussing potential side effects before beginning any new medication
  • Occasional "touchup" IPL treatments
