Hyperpigmentation, or discoloration of the skin, is a cosmetic issue that can cause self-consciousness and chronic dissatisfaction with one’s image, and thus a lessening in quality of life. Hyperpigmentation can include birthmarks, unspots, freckles, liver spots, melasma, port wine stains, and tans. At Total Glow, we have a variety of treatments and solutions for hyperpigmentation that can help you improve your appearance and confidence.

What can be done about hyperpigmentation and photodamage?

Photodamage is the result of UV light exposure primarily from the sun. It is responsible for wrinkle formation, hyperpigmentation, laxity, leathery appearance as well as increasing sensitivity and fragility, impaired wound healing and vulnerability of the skin. This condition is the main source of premature aging as well as skin cancers. At Total Glow, we are photoaging experts. We know exposure to sunlight depletes our skin of the vitamins that keep it healthy and youthful. As Environ’s California Flagship and Training Center, we have the latest and full range of the most effective skincare products designed for the prevention and reversal of Photodamage. We have put together a unique and unmatched arsenal of potent treatments proprietary to us based upon skin science, Environ skincare and Terrie’s heritage, experience and travels.
