Hyperpigmentation can make your skin look uneven and older. While hyperpigmentation may not be a health problem, it can make some people wish they could turn back the time on their skin. If you are concerned about hyperpigmentation, we have treatments that can help even out your complexion and make it appear more smooth and youthful.
One of our favorite methods for treating hyperpigmentation is the combination of IPL technology with radiofrequency microneedling. This dual treatment can lift excess melanin from the skin while also resurfacing, refreshing, and tightening tissues. At Renuva Medspa, we believe in enhancing the natural beauty of your skin while preserving the essence of what makes you unique. With our hyperpigmentation treatments in Pittsburgh and Bridgeville, PA, we focus on using the best techniques and devices to bring you treatments that last.
What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a term used to describe dark patches or spots on the skin. These patches are darker than the surrounding skin due to an overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. While many consider it a cosmetic concern, it’s essential to recognize the different types of hyperpigmentation and the available hyperpigmentation treatments to address them effectively.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanin production in specific areas of the skin increases. Various factors can trigger this excess production. Exposure to the sun is a leading cause, with UV rays stimulating melanin development. Inflammation or skin injuries, such as acne or cuts, can also lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Hormonal changes, certain medications, and medical conditions can further contribute to skin discoloration.
Our Treatment Options for Hyperpigmentation
Lumecca IPL for Hyperpigmentation
Lumecca IPL, which stands for intense pulsed light, is a technology designed to address various skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation. The technology emits powerful flashes of light that target and break down melanin accumulations in the skin. As these targeted melanin particles take in the light, they naturally disintegrate and are absorbed by the body, potentially leading to a clearer and more even-toned complexion.
Using Lumecca IPL not only offers a targeted approach to hyperpigmentation but also provides the benefit of minimal downtime and discomfort. It’s a non-invasive hyperpigmentation treatment that can help reduce dark spots and patches, assisting individuals in achieving smoother and more vibrant skin.
IPL Treatment Options
The Lumecca Photofacial employs intense pulsed light therapy to target skin imperfections, including age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. This hyperpigmentation treatment aims for a clearer, more even-toned complexion.
Tight and Bright
Our Tight and Bright regimen is a stellar combination of Lumecca IPL and Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling for both face and neck. By merging these two powerful technologies, this regimen addresses various concerns using energy-based solutions. The primary aim here is to combat skin issues like acne, rosacea, visible veins, and especially skin discoloration. Opting for the Tight and Bright regimen can be a more holistic skin discoloration treatment.
Step into the limelight with our Red Carpet regimen. This treatment trio encompasses a Lumecca IPL photofacial, a Deluxe Hydrafacial, and a dedicated brow sculpt and stain session. Beyond its all-encompassing approach to skincare, the Red Carpet regimen particularly excels in skin lightening, helping your skin to feel refreshed and look radiant.

Why Combine IPL With RF Microneedling?
Combining intense pulsed light with radiofrequency (RF) microneedling amplifies the advantages of both treatments. Here’s why we love this combination:
- Depth and Surface Treatment: While IPL targets superficial skin layers for dark spot removal and a more even skin tone, RF Microneedling penetrates deeper into the dermis, promoting collagen production and tissue tightening.
- Enhanced Results: The dual-action of IPL’s light therapy with RF microneedling’s tissue remodeling can lead to quicker and more pronounced results, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups.
- Easy and Efficacious Treatment: Both treatments are non-invasive and have established reputations. When combined, they don’t just offer an improvement in skin appearance but also promote the skin’s health and resilience.
- Versatility: This combination can treat a broader range of skin issues beyond discoloration. From texture improvements to pore reduction and fine-line minimization, the combined approach offers multifaceted benefits.
More Skin Brightening Treatments
Chemical peels are a tried-and-true hyperpigmentation treatment method. They involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, promoting exfoliation and eventually peeling off this upper layer. As the top layer of skin sheds, it often takes with it the dark spots and pigmented cells, revealing a more even-toned and refreshed complexion beneath.
AquaGold® Fine Touch
AquaGold Fine Touch is an innovative approach to dark spot removal and overall skin pigmentation treatment. Using micro-infusion technology, this treatment delivers a customized cocktail of ingredients directly into the skin. The result is not only a reduction in visible spots but also a rejuvenated, vibrant skin appearance.
