Skin Discoloration Treatment Options

Dealing with discolored skin? Don’t worry, you have options. Thanks to innovative technology, there’s a myriad of treatment options now for skin discoloration. Here are some of the most common skin corrections solutions that we recommend.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be a great option for treating your skin discoloration concerns. This procedure involves applying a chemical solution to your skin which makes the outer layers of skin dissolve or peel away. This controlled damage to the skin helps to trigger a regeneration or regrowth leading to healthier skin. Chemical peels are approved for all skin types but may require an additional pre-treatment step for darker complexions.


Microdermabrasion gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, giving you a smoother and brighter complexion. This procedure also involves topical solutions that your skin absorbs to reduce hyperpigmentation and even sun damage.


This treatment involves a non-invasive, surgical removal of the top layer of your skin. This treatment is recommended for patients who want to resurface their skin but may not be interested in other treatments like peels, lasers, or microdermabrasion.


This treatment involves using liquid nitrogen that freezes off skin lesions to make it easier for them to be removed. Melanin, or the pigment in your skin, is then forced to the surface and will naturally slough off 3 to 4 months following your treatment.

Melanage Peel

This is usually the last resort for patients whose hyperpigmentation has not responded to other treatment options. We apply a medicated mask in our office and you will go home with a strict skincare regimen you need to stick to for the next 30 days. You should notice a reduction in your skin discoloration after two weeks with up to 90% reduction after the 30 days are over. This treatment may also help control future acne breakouts.

Skin Brightening Creams

At Stockton Dermatology, we have a specific line of skin brightening creams that can help your skin discoloration. These creams can also be used in conjunction with other treatments we offer.
