Trusted & Highly-Rated Laser Treatment for Freckles, Melasma, Sun Spots & more.

Laser & Dermatology Institute offers laser hyperpigmentation treatment in Covina. Hyperpigmentation is a discoloration affecting the skin, causing some areas to appear darker. Darkened spots or patches are usually harmless. They occur when melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, collects in certain areas, giving the skin an uneven appearance.

What Can Cause Hyperpigmentation?

Changes in skin coloration can occur due to:

Sun damage: Known as solar lentigines, sun spots or age spots form over many years. Freckles, common in people with light to medium skin tones, are light brown sun spots caused by UV exposure and a lack of protection.

Hormonal changes: Dark spots can appear on the face, abdomen, or anywhere on the body during pregnancy, during which hormone levels can boost melanin production. Birth control pills and menopause can have a similar effect.

Injury/trauma: Eczema, psoriasis, and severe acne can injure the skin. Inflammation or trauma may increase pigmentation, causing dark spots to appear where skin was inflamed or an injury healed. These may be black or light brown and grow larger with sun exposure.

different types of hyperpigmentation

Conveniently located in Covina, LDI has made it easy for patients across the area to reach us regarding advanced treatment for:


Light brown spots, mostly occurring on the face, neck, hands, or chest, primarily caused by sun exposure. Freckles are usually not a concern, unless they are asymmetrical, have irregular borders, or change in color or diameter.

Sun spots

Also known as age spots, these are generally small. Some may reach as large as 2 centimeters in diameter. They are common in people who didn’t properly protect themselves in their younger years.


A type of hyperpigmentation common in women with darker skin tones. Often associated with hormonal changes or therapies, it appears as symmetrical brown patches on the forehead, cheeks, chin, bridge of the nose, and sometimes on the neck and forearms.


Redness of the face that tends to be patchy, flare up for weeks or months, and ease up. Increases in blood flow to the skin can aggravate rosacea, so sunlight, temperature extremes, hot drinks, alcohol, and exercise may worsen the condition.


Present at birth, these abnormalities include vascular birthmarks, or malformed blood vessels, and clusters of pigment cells. Most of the time, birthmarks aren’t serious. Some even go away on their own, while others don’t change or get larger; if a birthmark changes, see your healthcare provider.

Hyperpigmentation Treatment Options

Lasers have revolutionized treatment for skin pigmentation abnormalities. The options available to manage hyperpigmentation include:


Fractionated RF energy can be used on any skin type or tone to improve complexion and provide skin discoloration treatment. It’s often used on the eyelids, forehead, cheeks, and neck, and around the mouth.


Intense pulsed light is used to treat pigmented/vascular lesions on the face, arms, and abdomen; in 1-3 sessions, it can improve age spots, vascular lesions like spider veins, rosacea, freckles, and sun damage on any part of the body. 


An acoustic laser stimulates collagen production to improve pigmentation, often after three to five sessions; improvements may be seen over six months. It is effective for melasma, brown spots, freckles, and other abnormalities.

1064 nm

This laser penetrates the skin surface, without damaging it, to increase collagen production and provide skin pigmentation treatment for sun spots, vascular conditions, and even removing hair.

Went in today for a free consultation at the Covina location, got quoted and started the treatment for my acne and acne scarring the same day. So far i do not have any complaints. The staff were very friendly and the nurse explained everything in great detail...

Dr. Rispler came in and evaluated my face for the treatment that needed to be done for today, I did not find him rude at all. I like how the office gives out samples of the medications, topical creams and face washes instead of purchasing the full size and finding out later it did not react as well with your skin condition. Lastly, The laser and shots are not painful at all.. very tolerable, i am looking forward to my next appointment and great results. Thank you L.D.I.

I started seeing Dr. Rispler a year ago and at first, never believed in his surgery-free approach, but he definitely beat my expectations. He and his staff were very professional, and always listened to my questions. Dr. Rispler planned out the most specific treatment plans, which...

A few months ago I had my FREE consultation at Laser and Dermatology Institute. I met with one of the consultants first and thought he is extremely knowledgeable & professional. After I met with the consultant I felt confident to start treatment that same day. Dr. Rispler...

Read More one of the smartest dermatologist I’ve ever met. I asked tons of questions and he was very patient with me and answered every question I had. Dr. Rispler explained to me that it would take 6-8 treatments to laser off my facial hair permanently. After the consultation I was super exited to get started. I had my first laser hair removal treatment at the Covina office. A nurse named Teresa did my first treatment she was very gentle. She numbed my face and gave me some protective goggles for my eyes and she explained into detail what she was doing. She zapped my face with the laser a few times and I was done. OMG, I was so surprised that I was done with my first laser treatment so fast. The lasers felt like warm tiny stings on my face but it was virtually painless. I’m looking forward to my future laser treatments.. So far I’m extremely satisfied with Dr. Rispler and his staff. I highly recommend LDI to anyone.
