Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Auburn Hills, MI

What Is Hyperpigmentation Treatment?

Hyperpigmentation is a common medical concern involving darkened patches that appear on the skin. These brown or red splotches can pop up any place on the body and face and often range in shape and size. Skin hyperpigmentation may also be caused by acne scars, sun spots, or from conditions, like melasma, eczema, and psoriasis. Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Leslie Emmert-Buck and her aesthetic care team regularly address skin discoloration at Capstone Vision & Aesthetics using the Harmony® XL PRO laser from Alma. As a skin rejuvenation option, these hyperpigmentation treatments may decrease the appearance of this condition and help enhance your skin tone and complexion. We encourage you to contact our practice in Auburn Hills, MI to find out if this treatment is right for you.

How Does Hyperpigmentation Treatment Work?

Laser hyperpigmentation treatments using the cutting-edge Harmony XL PRO laser by Alma target the excess melanin, or pigment, in your skin with focused light to break it up, allowing the body to expel it naturally. Your treatment session begins with you seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms while your skin is cleaned and prepped. Although many say it isn't necessary, we can provide a topical anesthetic ointment to supplement your comfort. The handpiece will be passed over your skin several times, according to your treatment plan. Most sessions can be completed in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on your needs. After your treatment, you'll be able to go back to your regular routine, but you may experience mild redness and swelling that typically goes away within 24 – 72 hours. During your consultation, we will give you aftercare instructions to ensure the best results.

At Capstone Vision & Aesthetics, our aesthetic care experts can help you achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.

Dr. Emmert-Buck and staff are amazing. Needed cataract surgery and they walked me thru every step of the way. I also had Lasik performed to correct my nearsightedness. No more glasses or contacts!!! Fantastic Surgeon! Thank you Capstone.

Went in for LASIK consult and we settled on PRK as the path forward. Honestly the best money I think I've ever spent, both in terms of the procedure and who handled the operation. Dr. Emmert-Buck and her staff are all so wonderfully attentive and personable. There was even a self-caused issue after the procedure and Dr. Emmert-Buck was quick with being able to meet me the day it happened and help me resolve the issue. If I ever need touch ups later on in life, I know where I'm going!

I can highly recommend Dr. Emmert-Buck. I had cataract surgery on both eyes as well as a lens inserted on both this summer and I can see 20/20 without glasses, it's a life changer. Dr Emmert-Buck is a very caring and meticulous doctor/person and explains everything before and after surgery in an easy to understand manner. She also takes her time with you when you are in her office to go through all the exams and any questions you might have. I'm recommending all my family and friends to see her for any eye needs.
