How can dark spots and pigmentation be removed?

Freckles, age spots and other types of pigmentation are the result of cellular damage and a reduction in normal cellular activity caused by genetics, sun damage, environmental factors and aging.


In order to remove pigmentation, an effective skin care program must produce results at the cellular level.


In Cutis, we offer 6 treatments options that targets and removes pigmentation at the deeper layers of the skin.

Treatment Options to Remove Pigmentation:

1.) Dr. Sylvia's Advanced Clear Skin Program (Rx only)

Formulated with hydroquinone, a lightening agent that stimulates new collagen growth and blocks melanin production that causes pigmentation.

2.) Cutis Crystal Peel

Formulated with lightening agents (Glycolic, Kojic and Hydroquinone) that reduce freckles, age spots, pregnancy marks, uneven skin tone on the face & body giving a youthful glow.

3.) VI Peel

Improves the tone, texture and clarity of the skin, reduce the appearance of age spots and acne scars and soften lines and wrinkles revealing noticeable youthful skin.

4.) Pearl Resurfacing Treatment

Uses FDA-cleared laser technology to reduce wrinkles, uneven texture, age spots and sun damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery to provide a healthy, pearl-like glow.

5.) The LimeLight IPL Photo Facial

Safe, US FDA-cleared IPL pigmentation treatment that draws out brown spots and freckles from any part of the skin. It can also reduce skin redness and tiny facial veins.

6.) Combination Treatments

Depending on the severity, a combination of treatments might be needed to achieve best results which will be discussed further in the consultation.
