Home/Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures/Skin Discoloration Treatments

Treatment options for red or brown skin discoloration on the face and neck depend mostly on diagnosing the underlying cause. Once the reason for skin discoloration is diagnosed, our team can help you decide which options are best for you. Other factors we take into consideration are downtime, cost, and the number of treatments required to achieve the desired result.

One of the most important factors to take into consideration when discussing options for skin discoloration is the patient’s skin type/ethnicity. In general, lighter-skin patients with European ancestry do well with BroadBand Light™, lasers, and peels. In contrast, darker-skin patients with Indo/Pakastani or African ancestry do better with less invasive options, such as superficial chemical peels and medical-grade skin care. Lighter-skin patients with Asian ancestry also tend to be better candidates for chemical peels and skin care.

Regardless of skin type or the cause of discoloration, patients with uneven skin tone universally benefit from a comprehensive skin care plan. This is because good daily skin care practices can offer both prevention and treatment of discoloration.

We understand that skin discoloration is often a chronic issue that can be difficult emotionally. Dr. Prischmann and her team of advanced practice estheticians can guide you in your skin discoloration journey and help you determine a long-term management plan. Schedule your consultation today.
