  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Post-folliculitis
  • Hyperpigmented scarring
  • Sun spots / age spots
  • Dermatitis

Dr. Mary Lupo is a board certified dermatologist who understands how some of these skin discoloration concerns can result in lowered self-esteem and confidence. This is why she offers many treatment options for patients who are ready to take charge of their skin discoloration and seek effective therapies to reduce them and bring back their skin’s natural beauty.

Skin discoloration treatment varies greatly depending on the concern. Patients are encouraged to contact the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to receive a thorough examination and a proper diagnosis of their condition before determining what treatment option is best for them. A diagnosis of the condition will also allow patients to understand what caused the discoloration and pigmentation issue and find an effective way to reduce or eliminate it.

Dr. Mary Lupo has many cosmetic, medical, and laser dermatology services available for patients in her practice which may be used for reducing skin discoloration and may include:
  • Chemical peels
