We are so passionate about helping our clients address their skin concerns and achieve real results with a product and treatment plan! This issue in our series is breaking down hyperpigmentation ⁠—  a common condition where some areas of your skin may be darker than others and have more color. Hyperpigmentation is caused by an overproduction of melanin which can be triggered by sun exposure, age, or trauma to the skin such as acne. It can appear in spots and patches, sometimes called age spots or sun spots. We understand wanting to treat those areas of hyperpigmentation and we are here to tell you how! For more personalized recommendations & a treatment plan, book a consultation with us today, in person or virtual.

If you are struggling with hyperpigmentation the perfect place to start is with KH Koji Pads! These are made to brighten skin tone and pigmentation. They are melanin inhibitors - they suppress the pigmentation, not erase. With continued use of medical grade products you will see your pigmentation maintained suppressed. We customize these pads specifically to your skin, so depending on your condition, we can compound them to push back on that pigment. We also offer Koji Creme, a gentle cream version of our pads that will help lighten and remove sun damage to give you a healthy glow. Also great for anti-aging, Koji Creme can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and texture. If you’re looking for a brightening boost, our estheticians can customize it as a potent, once weekly lightening treatment. For a weekly mini peel right at home, KH Retexturize Weekly Pads will stimulate cellular turnover for smooth skin and an even tone, enhancing the efficacy of active ingredients. By stimulating cellular turnover, fresh, new skin will be revealed. We also offer HQ Cream and Melasma Emulsion Cream that may be best for you in treating your hyperpigmentation. These are prescription strength products, so come pick them up in store!

When treating a client with hyperpigmentation, these are the services we most often recommend. The first is microneedling, which creates micro injuries in the skin to create collagen production. This healing process will lead to improvements in skin tone as well as texture. One of our newer treatments, AdvaTX Laser can treat acne, scars, dark spots, and more. This laser will rejuvenate your skin and provide immediate results with no downtime. Our chemical peels are also an amazing treatment option to really leave you with a fresh layer of skin. Our chemical peels are customizable, so if hyperpigmentation is a concern you would like to target, we will make that happen for you! The last treatment option that we commonly recommend for hyperpigmentation is IPL/BBL. These treatments deliver high-intensity light into the deeper layers of the skin to improve redness, sun spots, and more with minimal downtime. 

Our clients have seen great results in improving hyperpigmentation with these products and treatments. Our Koji Pads are our most popular product for a reason! Try out our recommendations and let us know what works best for you. What skin concern would you like us to break down next?
