Uneven skin colour can impact self-confidence, leading to feelings of self-consciousness and frustration, especially when it affects visible areas like the face. Many individuals resort to using makeup to conceal it with makeup, which is completely understandable. But if you’re determined to rid your skin of this and want to see a significant improvement, Harmony MedSpa’s hyperpigmentation treatment can help.

Located in Oshawa, Harmony MedSpa offers advanced and effective solutions for treating skin pigmentation. Our skilled skin specialists can help you achieve your desired beautiful, flawless skin.

What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when certain areas of the skin darken due to excessive melanin production, the pigment responsible for giving skin its colour. These darker skin spots or patches can appear in various shades, including brow, black, gray, red, or even pink. While hyperpigmentation is not painful or itchy, it can affect your self-esteem.

Fortunately, hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that can be effectively managed with the proper skincare routine and treatment. All it takes is having a knowledgeable skin expert to help you determine its causes and develop a tailored treatment plan.

Types of Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation can result from various factors beyond sun exposure. That’s why it’s important to consult an expert to treat hyperpigmentation based on its type and underlying cause. 

Sun Spots 

Also called liver spots or solar lentigines, sun spots are flat, tan, brown, or black spots that develop on sun-exposed areas of the skin. They are more common in older individuals and are often the result of prolonged exposure to the sun.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation 

This type of hyperpigmentation arises from inflammatory skin conditions or injuries, such as acne, eczema, cuts, or even surgical scars. It develops as the skin undergoes the healing process.


Melasma presents as larger patches of darkened skin with well-defined borders, ranging in colour from light brown to dark brown. It is often found on the face and is typically triggered by hormonal changes. For instance, some women experience chloasma or “pregnancy mask” during pregnancy due to increased estrogen levels. 


Freckles are more common in fair-skinned individuals and tend to darken after sun exposure. They are small, flat spots that are usually light brown, red, or tan. These spots can be passed down genetically and appear on areas regularly exposed to sunlight, like the face, arms, and shoulders.

Drug-Induced Hyperpigmentation 

Some medications, like analgesics, anticoagulants, and antimicrobials, can also cause hyperpigmentation as a side effect

Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

Serving the Oshawa and Durham areas, Harmony MedSpa has dedicated skin specialists committed to treating melasma, age spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and all types of skin discolouration. We make use of advanced hyperpigmentation treatments like:

Medical Grade Skincare  

We have medical-grade skincare products from AlumierMD, with ingredients like kojic acid and more, that can address discolouration and improve skin tone. 

PicoSure Laser Treatment

We use our PicoSure Laser for hyperpigmentation treatment, fading age spots and pigmented lesions and giving you brighter, visibly clearer skin.

Chemical Peels 

Our skin specialists carefully exfoliate your skin using a chemical solution. This process helps reveal a beautiful and smooth complexion while addressing your hyperpigmentation concerns.


The Pristine diamond peel microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that can help lighten your dark spots and improve skin texture.

How PicoSure Laser Treatments for Hyperpigmentation Work

PicoSure Laser stands out as the best choice for skin revitalization, harnessing cutting-edge picosecond technology. This advanced system emits ultra-short pulses of laser energy in picoseconds, generating shockwaves that precisely target melanin—the culprit behind dark spots in hyperpigmentation.

Laser treatment for hyperpigmentation targets pigments, breaking them down into smaller, more manageable fragments. This approach allows for aggressive hyperpigmentation treatment while safeguarding surrounding skin tissues from potential damage, such as scarring or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

Benefits of Hyperpigmentation Laser Treatment: Results You Can Expect

Non-Invasive & Non-Surgical 

Experience a safer and more comfortable way to treat hyperpigmentation. Our PicoSure Laser Therapy does not require incisions or surgical procedures, ensuring a gentle yet effective treatment.


Laser treatment for hyperpigmentation can target various types of pigmentation, such as sunspots, melasma, and age spots. Our skin specialists can customize your treatment plan based on the type and severity of your hyperpigmentation.

Enhanced Skin Texture 

With PicoSure technology and Harmony MedSpa’s expert laser specialists, you can improve your skin’s firmness and smoothness.

Stimulates Collagen Production 

Achieve a more youthful and radiant complexion. Laser treatments help stimulate the production of collagen, which is essential for maintaining skin structure and firmness.

Minimal Discomfort 

PicoSure lasers are designed to minimize discomfort during treatment. Although you may experience a mild tingling sensation, the procedure itself is tolerable, especially with topical numbing creams.

Fast Treatment Time and Recovery 

Recovery time after PicoSure treatment is usually minimal. Depending on the area you want to treat, laser therapy is known for short sessions.

Hyperpigmentation Laser Treatment Aftercare

After your PicoSure treatment, your laser technician will inform you how you can minimize the risk of side effects and infections in the treated area, such as: 

  • Avoid direct sun exposure, especially during the first few days post-treatment.
  • Apply a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and promote healing.
  • Apply any prescribed topical treatments as directed.
  • Avoid harsh cosmetics, such as exfoliants and scrubs, to allow the skin to heal.
  • Refrain from picking, scratching, or rubbing treated areas.
  • Wash the treated area daily with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser, then pat dry.
  • Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ or higher for sun protection.
  • Skip strenuous exercises for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
  • If you experience any concerns, consult your provider.

Potential Side Effects of Treatment for Hyperpigmentation

You may experience some side effects after your hyperpigmentation laser treatment. While usually temporary and mild, it’s better to keep an eye out and consult your provider if you experience any of the following:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Crusting or scabbing
  • Hypopigmentation (lighter skin)
  • Hyperpigmentation (darker skin)
  • Blistering
