Hyperpigmentation/Blotchiness

Hyperpigmentation

 

Normal skin contains cells called melanocytes that produce the brown skin-coloring pigment melanin.  There are several conditions in which melanocytes are either abnormal or abnormally distributed.  A pale area of the skin is the result of fewer or less active melanocytes than usual, whereas a darker area (or area that tans more easily) indicates more numerous or more active melanocytes. 

 

Sometimes mistaken for a suntan, bronzing of the skin often develops starting at pressure points such as elbows, knuckles, and knees and spreading from there.  It is also seen in the creases of the feet and the palms of the hands.  The bronze color can range from light to dark (in fair skinned people) with the intensity often a function of the underlying cause. 

 

Hyperpigmentation is treated with an Intense Pulsed Light or Fraxel Resurfacing.  Normally there are approximately 5 - 7 treatments.

TESTIMONIALS

  • "There are so many amazing things to say about Dr. Suls. Not only is he an incredibly skilled doctor, but he is immeasurably kind and caring. When I first started seeing him, I looked simply terrible. Dealing with scarring and discoloration on my face was embarrassing and uncomfortable, but Dr. Suls miraculously made the process easy, and the improvement in my appearance is huge. Not only are my scars and coloring much improved, but I now have the most gorgeous and natural-looking cheekbones a girl could ask for! He is supportive, encouraging, and effective, and--while his prices are very, very reasonable--he will always work within whatever budget is comfortable for you and never pushes unnecessary services or products. His entire staff is just amazing, and the office itself is so warm and friendly. I cannot recommend Dr. Suls enough!" --JP

  • I’m so excited that I can get state of the art treatments such as “Fraxel” and many other treatments offered at Bedford Laser, without having to travel to Boston. Dr. Suls and his friendly, knowledgeable staff always provide me with a pleasant experience that continues to bring me back. --- Anonymous
