What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Dark spots on your face, hands, or anywhere on your body can be unsightly and embarrassing. You may feel that you have to wear certain clothes, to cover up your uneven skin tone, or that you can;t participate in activities such as swimming.

At SlimmingSolutions Med Spa, we offer three skin rejuvenation solutions to eliminate hyperpigmentation, so you can feel confident about your appearance and wear the clothes you want to wear wherever you are. 

Hyperpigmentation Kansas City

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is the appearance of dark patches on your skin that occurs when there is too much melanin (the natural substance which determines skin color) in your skin. 

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is generally caused by a chemical change in the color of your skin. It can be affected by a number of factors, including genetics, hormones, age, and exposure to certain chemicals or products. Some people are also more susceptible than others to this condition due to their ancestry. 

What Treatments are Available for Hyperpigmentation?

Slimming Solutions offers several skin rejuvenation procedures to help diminish the signs of hyperpigmentation. Before your treatment, you will meet with her for a consultation, so she can help you decide which procedure is right for you. Our skin rejuvenation treatments include:


Microneedling is a rejuvenation process that uses a very fine needle to create “micro injuries” to your skin. It stimulates your skin’s natural production of elastin and collagen. This enables your skin to repair itself more efficiently, evening out its tone. You will feel no pain during the procedure.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel promotes the removal of old, dead cells that give your skin a dull appearance. It can also help to reduce sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels are made from all natural ingredients such as milk or fruit enzymes.

IPL FotoFacial RF

This skin rejuvenating therapy emits intense pulses of light into the skin to remove hyperpigmentation. Because the upper layer of the skin is not harmed, there are no scabs and healing is quicker.
