As many of us struggle with hyperpigmentation or “brown/age spots” finding the most effective skin care routine can be overwhelming with all of the options out there. Our bodies produce pigment for a number of reasons; hormones, sun exposure, stress, age, and free radical damage.skin-medica-santa-rosa-ca-skin-problems-hyper-pigmentation-bleach-skin-age-spots

At Artemedica, our Physicians, Skin Care Specialists and licensed Aestheticians are trained extensively in treating pigment and providing in depth skin care consultations to provide the best care for erasing pigmentation and preventing new pigment from coming to the surface. This can be accomplished with both in office treatments and at home skin care regimen.

In Office Treatments: When battling pigmentation issues, laser treatments and chemical peels are the best weapons to help combat those pesky brown spots. Generally, prior to any in-office treatments, we recommend “prepping” your skin by starting an at-home skin regimen at least 30 days prior to your first in-office treatment.

At Home Skin Regimens: When using effective, medical grade products that have the ability to change the texture of the skin we can work with you to achieve your optimal skin! Some of the products that we work with to ensure brightening and lightening of the skin are Skin Medica’s TNS Essential Serum, Lytera, and Total Defense and Repair.  Our strongest skin care options include compound pharmacy blends of Hydroquinone and Retin-A which are proven to be a powerhouse duo for eliminating pigment.
