Effective Cosmetic Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

Do you have a pesky hyperpigmentation condition, like melasma or dark spots, that impacts your overall self-esteem and confidence levels? 

One of the most common skin conditions, hyperpigmentation affects thousands of people in the United States, with many seeking out treatment to achieve clear, even-toned skin. 

Whether you developed hyperpigmentation from exposure to UV rays or simply from aging, we’re here to help you achieve your aesthetic goals with effective hyperpigmentation treatment in Brentwood, Tennessee. Take a look at the top treatment methods we use below! 

Top Treatments for Hyperpigmentation at Brentwood Dermatology 

Chemical Peels 

While a chemical peel may sound a bit scary, this hyperpigmentation treatment is completely safe and remarkably effective at addressing most forms of skin discoloration! 

During a chemical peel treatment, your provider applies a chemical solution that deeply exfoliates the skin and causes the epidermis (outermost layer) to peel. This process essentially removes any dead skin cells, renews the skin, and reveals a brighter complexion underneath. 

A chemical peel treatment for hyperpigmentation works by sloughing off the top layer of skin, which tends to be the most discolored. After the treatment, your skin will heal to be softer, smoother, and more even-toned. 

At Brentwood Dermatology, we offer three different types of chemical peels: ZO 3-Step Peel, Melanage Mini Peel, and TCA Peel. During your initial chemical peel consultation, your dermatologist will determine which is best for your hyperpigmented skin and aesthetic goals! 


An incredibly popular treatment, microneedling – also referred to as collagen induction therapy – stimulates the body’s regenerative healing process to improve a number of skin problems, including hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. 

During a microneedling treatment, your provider will use a pen-like device that has several small needles on the end. These needles make micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s own healing process that boosts both collagen and elastin production. 

At Brentwood Dermatology, we offer microneedling with or without PRP therapy. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy involves following up a microneedling treatment with an injection or topical application of the PRP solution, which is an extraction of PRP components from the patient’s blood. 

This PRP solution contains several growth factors that benefit the skin by improving and speeding up the production of collagen and elastin, which helps to diminish the look of hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. 


While not as comprehensive as a chemical peel or microneedling, there are certain topicals we recommend that may work just as well to address and diminish hyperpigmentation. 

At Brentwood Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists recommend serums, gels, and moisturizers with these skin lightening ingredients: 

  • Retinol 
  • Glycolic Acid 
  • Peptides 
  • AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) 
  • Hydroquinone
  • Vitamin C
  • Azelaic Acid 
  • Kojic Acid 
  • Tranexamic Acid 

When targeting hyperpigmentation, we recommend combining ingredients to optimize the lightening of skin discoloration. For more information, schedule a skin consultation with one of our professional skin experts! We’re happy to find a hyperpigmentation topical treatment that works for you.
