Ultraviolet light from the sun can discolor certain skin cells and cause them to clump together. These clumps (called hyperpigmentation) are often unsightly and unwanted. At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery, we can suggest or combine the latest topical, chemical, and laser treatments to disband dark blemishes permanently.
While generally harmless, lipomas can cause unsightly lumping just under the skin. These unwanted fatty deposits appear as large, soft mounds, sinking both confidence and comfort. Often appearing on the neck, shoulders, back, arms, abdomen, or thighs, lipomas are quickly and easily removed for a greater quality of life.
These dark brown skin patches (also called chloasma) appear most frequently in women due to hormonal changes or excessive sun exposure. Afflicting the nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, melasma dominates our most visible facial features, compromising our confidence at the worst possible time. Let Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery restore your glowing, healthy skin.
Eczema is a sinister skin affliction causing serious discomfort and sunken confidence the world over. Thankfully, these dry, itchy patches have met their match in some of the latest cosmetic and medical dermatology developments. Stop scratching and start living with eczema treatment from Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
When it comes to precancerous and cancerous skin growth, the trick to treatment has always been targeted destruction. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses a light-activated drug to tactically eliminate unwanted skin growth while leaving the healthy skin surrounding it unharmed. Ideal for the treatment of precancerous growths and nonmelanoma skin cancers, PDT could be the way forward in the treatment of your skin.
Acne Treatment & Scarring
The ongoing battle against frequent and intense acne outbreaks requires newer, better, more cutting-edge tactics. At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a diverse range of medical and cosmetic options to deep clean the face and remove naturally occurring acne fuel in the form of oils, toxins, and dead skin. We can also recommend medical creams or pharmaceutical solutions for lasting relief and scar revision.

Dark spots and hyperpigmentation are common cosmetic concerns that affect many people. They are caused by an excess production of melanin, the pigment that gives color to skin. Some factors that can lead to dark spots and hyperpigmentation include sun exposure, aging, hormones, inflammation, acne scars, medications, and skin conditions.
Fortunately, there are several medical dermatology services and treatments that can help:
- Chemical peels
- Laser therapy
- Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy
- Topical medications, such as hydroquinone, azelaic acid, kojic acid, vitamin C, retinoids,and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), that inhibit melanin synthesis or exfoliate the skin

Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation that causes brown or gray patches on the face, especially on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. Sun exposure and hormones are the two main causes of melasma. It is more common in women than men, and it often occurs during pregnancy or when using hormonal contraceptives.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a medical dermatology treatment that combines a photosensitizing agent and a light source to destroy abnormal cells in the skin. The photosensitizing agent is applied to the affected area of the skin and allowed to incubate for a certain period of time. The agent makes the abnormal cells more sensitive to light. Then, the light source is activated and directed at the treated area. The light triggers a chemical reaction that produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) that damage or kill the abnormal cells. The normal cells are spared because they have lower levels of the photosensitizing agent.
As a medical treatment, PDT can be used for various skin conditions and skin cancers, such as actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous skin lesions), basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer), acne, psoriasis, and warts. PDT has several advantages over other treatments, such as:
- Minimally invasive
- Does not require surgery or anesthesia
- Improves the appearance and texture of the skin
- Targets specific areas and preserves surrounding healthy tissue
