Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Hyperpigmentation symptoms can be frustrating, but Goodman Dermatology can help you find a solution to these symptoms so that you can enjoy lasting relief. We welcome patients from Roswell, Marietta / East Cobb, Woodstock and Dawsonville, GA.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes patches of skin to develop a darker color than the surrounding areas. The cause for this is an increase in melanin, a skin pigment, in the affected area. There are many different causes for hyperpigmentation, which can include both genetic dispositions and lifestyle habits.

Fortunately, hyperpigmentation does not have any harmful symptoms, and it can be effectively treated. Goodman Dermatology offers hyperpigmentation treatment to patients looking for the best treatment for hyperpigmentation to achieve clearer skin.

How Much Does Hyperpigmentation Treatment Cost?

The cost of hyperpigmentation treatment will vary depending on the techniques used, and may be covered by some health insurance providers. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of your hyperpigmentation cost. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.

How is Hyperpigmentation Treated?

There are many treatments that are effective for addressing hyperpigmentation symptoms. In most cases, the treatment that is best for you will depend on your skin type and the severity and location of your symptoms. At Goodman Dermatology, we specialize in many non-invasive hyperpigmentation treatments, including hyperpigmentation laser treatment. This advanced technique targets melanin in the skin and breaks it up using laser energy.

Many of our skin rejuvenation treatments can also be effective in addressing hyperpigmentation. With these techniques, we offer the following skin pigmentation treatment services:

  • Freckles, birth marks, and port stains
  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation treatment
  • Acne hyperpigmentation treatment

Are There Any Side Effects from Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

The side effects from your hyperpigmentation treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. However, we strive to offer treatments that are gentle on the skin to minimize side effects as much as possible.

Is There Any Downtime Required After Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

For most hyperpigmentation treatments, there is no downtime or recovery period necessary. Some laser treatments may cause mild skin irritation, which will not directly require downtime, but may require you to alter some of your normal habits in the days following your appointment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

The results you achieve from hyperpigmentation treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options to determine the treatment plan that will deliver the best results. At this time, we will let you know what kind of results you can expect. Patients are encouraged to maintain healthy lifestyle habits following their treatment to ensure that their results last as long as possible.
