Melasma & Hyperpigmentation Treatments in Calgary

What is Melasma vs. Hyperpigmentation?

Melasma may present as dark grey or brown patches typically on someone’s face. This condition is triggered by heat, humidity and hormones and is often associated with pregnancy due to its prevalence among pregnant women. However, it can occur in any gender at any stage of life.

When certain cells become hyperactive and start producing too much pigment (melanin), they create discolored blemishes on the forehead, cheeks and upper lip. This is similar to the mechanism that causes freckles and age spots, although melasma spots are typically much larger.

Melasma is just one form of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation occurs when certain areas of the skin develop more melanin, or pigment than others. While hyperpigmentation often develops due to melasma or age spots, it can also appear in tandem with other conditions such as acne.

Treatment Options

Sante Medical offers a wide variety of treatment options and medical-grade skincare products for skin discoloration. Our team will work with you to develop a plan that aligns with your needs and goals.

A chemical peel works by removing the top layers of skin to reveal smoother, more even-toned skin beneath.

The Jessner peel is typically a medium depth peel, which means it removes skin cells from the top layer of your skin, the epidermis, and the upper portion of the middle layer, the dermis.

A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve tone/texture and provide a more even appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth.

A HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.

Dermal Needling – it's not as scary as it sounds!

Our EndyMed Intensif dermal needling treatment utilizes laser-like radio-frequency and microneedling to reach deeper into the dermis and allow the skin to reproduce its own collagen. This process leaves the skin tighter while improving the appearance of sun damage, acne scarring and other textural issues. With minimal downtime, patients see lasting results that continue to improve over time. A clinic favourite, this treatment comes at a reasonable cost and minimal downtime, offering patients beautiful results. Give us a call at (403) 245-8008 to learn more about EndyMed today, or visit the link in our bio to book a consultation.

Collagen: the buzzword of the moment. From skin care to smoothie supplements, this super-ingredient promises to turn back time on our skin and keep it looking youthful for years on end. But is it really worth the hype?

Collagen is a protein substance that is naturally created in the body by converting dietary protein into amino acids that can be found in a balanced diet of protein-rich foods. The production of collagen within the body naturally slows with age, but can also be aided by sun exposure, smoking, increased carb and alcohol intake, and stress. While simply taking supplements won't completely reverse the effects of the body's natural loss of the substance, some studies have shown that collagen supplements can improve skin elasticity and hydration on some level.

So while it might not be the miracle many brands boast, an increase of collagen does aid anti-aging efforts. However, certain cosmetic treatments can stimulate the body's own production of collagen, such as @Ultherapy, Fotona laser treatment, Co2 resurfacing and EndyMed microneedling, all of which we're proud to offer at Sante. Visit the link in our bio to learn more about these treatments and head to our blog to read all about collagen and how it can improve skin appearance.
