We all want skin that looks airbrushed to perfection, but for most of us, our skin has other plans and hyperpigmentation is one of the most common skin complaints we see. The result of an overproduction of melanin deposits in the skin, pigmentation on the face and body can form as a result of injury or trauma (presenting as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or PIH), but it can also develop due to age, genetics, sun exposure, and hormone fluctuations. If you’re experiencing broad patches of discoloration or signs of age spots, blemish scars, sun spots or other persistent marks on the skin that won’t fade, you are in luck. Treatment options at Russak+ can bring your skin back to its luminous roots.

Treatment For Hyperpigmentation

Tackling prolonged hyperpigmentation is a hands-on process and varies person-to-person depending on the depth of pigment damage and the extent. We offer aesthetic laser treatments that include fractional laser resurfacing and brightening IPL treatments for deeper and more persistent dark spots as well as redness and scarring. Our range of professional chemical peels strips away excess pigment over time to reveal new skin that is brighter complemented by skin care that enhances results long past your in-office visit. Above all, we help you treat and reduce your hyperpigmentation safely so that your skin remains healthy and fabulous.

Not Just Skin Deep

At Russak+ Aesthetic Center, we approach skin aging through the lens of total body wellness. We don’t just seek to target and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, we develop a holistic treatment plan that helps your complex skin and body system fight aging from the inside out. You can learn more about our approach to integrated wellness here, where we will help you map out a journey towards long term skin health.

Julie Russak is by far the best dermatologist I have ever visited. First off, her office is impeccable and looks like a museum. The front desk staff are always friendly and so are the medical assistants. Julie always gets the job done right and not once has she pressured me to spend any more money than I need to or suggest other procedures. If I ask her she’s very honest and professional.
