FACE’s Guide to Redness & Pigmentation Treatments

There are so many treatments that can help hyperpigmentation and redness, but how do you know which ones are right for you? Some treatments may help one type of pigment, but if used on another, it can actually make it worse, so it’s important to do your research! We’re here to help you along the way! Here are some of our favorite treatments to help with redness and hyperpigmentation.

Luxury Facials

As you know, we’re huge advocates for monthly facials even if your skin is perfect! Facials are the foundation of skincare, help treat a variety of different issues, and act as a preventative measure. If you’re not partaking in this monthly maintenance, you’re really missing out! All that being said, which facials are the best for treating redness and hyperpigmentation?

Nano‑Needling Luxury Facial

Created by our fearless founder, @theskinsaintofficial, this facial will get your skin looking flawless in no time! This 75‑minute facial repairs damaged collagen, increases hydration, plumps the cells, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, improves tone and texture, making the skin flawless.


Combines deep resurfacing with Ultrasound technology and restorative LED therapy for unprecedented skin rejuvenation, detoxification, and restoration for more youthful skin, while treating hyperpigmentation, acne, redness and more.

IllumiBright Facial 

Our seaweed‑based peel is an intensive skin treatment that focuses on resurfacing and renewing skin with less irritation than standard glycolic peels. Helps the appearance of uneven tone, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation by using the latest in brightening science and innovative marine bio‑technology.

6‑Layer Facial 

This luxury treatment for redness‑prone skin starts with a gentle peel customized to your skin type. Then layer upon layer of fresh organic seaweed, combined with our individualized anti‑oxidant and collagen formula, to detoxify, rehydrate, re‑mineralize, and rebalance the skin. Treats redness, rosacea and more.


​​Next up is lasers! Lasers target water, vessels, or pigment. Vascular lasers target redness & broken capillaries. Pico lasers mechanically target pigment, break it up into smaller particles & remove it safely on all skin tones. Ablative lasers remove the topmost layer of skin to encourage healing and new skin cell growth to replace dull, damaged, wrinkled skin, hyperpigmentation, melasma, & age spots. Non‑ablative Fractional lasers create thousands of tiny channels in the skin as a controlled injury that helps stimulate the skin to repair itself. This helps lines and wrinkles, scarring, pigment, and imperfections. Think of ablative lasers as cutting the lawn, and fractional lasers as aerating the lawn. They are even more powerful when done together. Here are a few of our favorites!


The world’s first hybrid fractional laser and most scientifically advanced treatment for sun damage, pigment, and more without the downtime of traditional ablative and fractional lasers. As a side effect, Halo will create more blood vessel networks which will taper down some of your redness. You’ll see dramatic changes in discoloration in the first 2‑3 weeks!

Enlighten PICO Genesis 

A non‑invasive laser treatment that gets rid of pigmented lesions (melasma, hyperpigmentation, sun spots) and adds skin revitalization for all skin types WITHOUT ANY DOWNTIME, and little to no discomfort! If you feel like all hope is lost with treating hyperpigmentation, this could be your answer!


A non‑ablative laser, and the latest way to revitalize aging skin by reducing pigment and improving the general tone and texture of skin. This low‑to‑no downtime treatment is a year‑round solution that is fast with very little discomfort.

Excel V Coolview 

This is the number one most complete vascular laser in the world! This system addresses pigmentation, skin rejuvenation and above all, vascular issues in the face and body. It treats many vascular skin conditions, including redness, bruising, broken capillaries, rosacea, larger vessels, and more. It also helps sun damage, including superficial pigmentation, as well as superficial blemishes, even PIE (post inflammatory erythema).


BroadBand Light (BBL) is one of our favorite treatments for clients that want to treat redness and hyperpigmentation (non Melasma based hyperpigmentation). BBL delivers light energy to specifically target and remove pigment, instead of water, lifting out spots to create a more even complexion. After 7‑10 days post treatment, you will see a reduction in discoloration and the skin will take on a luminous appearance. 

We primarily use BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) as it treats the skin with 4x the speed, 3x the power and 2x the cooling capacity for maximum comfort, making it the fastest, most effective BBL treatment available. Applied on the face it is also known as BBL+.

We LOVE to pair BBL with Halo for double duty results! Some spas use this as their go‑to laser treatment for everything, but it’s not the be all end all for all skin types and issues. In fact, it can make some skin issues worse, so make sure you do your research first!

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels produce a controlled injury to the tissue which promotes the acceleration of growth of new skin. It is one of the most simple and least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. They’re amazing for treating common conditions such as photo‑aging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne and discoloration (including melasma, freckles, and age spots). Here are some of our favorites for redness and hyperpigmentation.

Vi Peel 

A safe, effective approach to achieving younger looking skin and is safe for all skin types. See significant reversal of sun damage, hyperpigmentation including melasma, acne, and aging skin. Expect three days of major peeling.

BioRevitalization Peel 

 Improves texture, tone, fine lines,elasticity. The innovative treatment does not peel off the top layer of skin, but instead Biorevitalizes it from inside out leading to smoother, brighter, younger, and tighter skin. Great for people who want a peel without dealing with peeling!


This peel is performed in‑office but then finished in the comfort of your own home. The RevePeel® uses an oil‑based delivery system, which is applied to the top layer of skin. Over the course of seven days, the oil works to exfoliate the skin and bring newly refreshed skin up to the surface. You’ll see significantly reduced acne, hyperpigmentation, lines, and more.

Enlighten Peel 

An innovative treatment that uses special lightening methods to gently but effectively minimize the appearance of melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, dull skin, and more. This peel works to halt your skin cells from creating additional pigmentation while exfoliating the skin’s surface to minimize the appearance of existing hyperpigmentation. See significant changes in pigment in just two applications. 

Mandelic Acid Peel 

This peel will keep you from seeing red! This gentle peel is great even for sensitive skin and rosacea. It’s able to treat redness, hyperpigmentation, promote cell turnover, and leave you with a brightened, more renewed complexion.


DiamondGlow is one of our top treatments for helping hyperpigmentation without downtime. This is an advanced deep clinical skin‑resurfacing treatment that is the only treatment to combine exfoliation, extraction, and infusion simultaneously with condition‑specific serums to improve skin health, function, and appearance. 

Noticeable changes have been documented for stimulating collagen, tightening pores, and improving texture, acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin radiance. The skin will be volumized 70% in just one hour for plumper, glowing, more radiant skin, and in a series of treatments, see a brighter and fresher appearance.

RF Microneedling

Microneedling by itself works to trigger your skin’s natural healing processes by creating tiny lesions in the skin. Collagen production plays a big part in the healing process and gives your skin a fresh, brighter appearance with skin‑tightening effects, and without the downtime of lasers. By adding radio frequency (RF), the heat creates collagen contraction, giving you longer lasting results. 

Here are two of our favorite RF microneedling devices:


The gold standard and non‑invasive cosmetic procedure that takes facial rejuvenation to the next level, combining the benefits of microneedling and RF energy technology into one powerful treatment. You’ll see improved skin texture, skin tone, lessened scarring, pigmentation, PIH and more.

Secret RF

This fractional microneedling system delivers tailored energy to tighten skin, minimize pores, reduce scarring and acne scarring, lighten pigmentation, and dramatically reduce wrinkles and stretch marks. The micro‑injuries induced by the physical needling produce additional collagen stimulation and also can help in reducing skin pigmentation.
