|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hyperpigmentation||Device: MOXI||Not Applicable|
This single-center clinical trial is being conducted over the course of 7 months, including one Initial Screening Visit (-42 to -28 Days) and three treatments (Day 0, Day 30, Day 60) followed by 1-month and 3-month follow-up visits (Day 90 and Day 120). The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of 1927nm non-ablative fractionated laser therapy to treat hyperpigmentation in patients ages 18-75 with Fitzpatrick Skin Phototypes V and VI and explore an effective, adjunctive pre- and post-procedural regimen to prevent iatrogenic dyspigmentation or scarring in this population.
The Investigators will explore this question with a non-blinded, pilot study at a single center.

Subjects who are interested in treatment for hyperpigmentation will be enrolled for this study
Patients will receive treatment using f1927 devices and will be treated over the affected areas, once each month for a total of three months.
- Clinical assessment of change in overall facial hyperpigmentation in response to laser treatment. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month and 3 Months ]Quantitively assessment of change in overall facial hyperpigmentation using measurements provided VISIA 3D analysis.
- Change in brown spots and pigmentation from baseline in response to laser treatment at 1 month [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 month ]Quantitatively assessment from baseline of improvement in overall facial hyperpigmentation using measurements provided VISIA 3D analysis at 1 month
- Change in brown spots and pigmentation from baseline in response to laser treatment at 3 months [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months ]Quantitatively assessment from baseline of change in overall facial hyperpigmentation using measurements provided VISIA 3D analysis at 3 months
- Change in Skin Hyperpigmentation Index (SHI) Scores from baseline at 1 month [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 month ]SHI software will calculate the relative contribution of pigmentation of each pixel to create a score, and a coefficient is the derived from comparing pigmentation scores of the area with hyperpigmentation versus the reference point. The SHI ranges from 1 (no hyperpigmentation) to 4 (maximum hyperpigmentation).
- Change in Skin Hyperpigmentation Index (SHI) Scores from baseline at 3 months [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months ]SHI software will calculate the relative contribution of pigmentation of each pixel to create a score, and a coefficient is the derived from comparing pigmentation scores of the area with hyperpigmentation versus the reference point. The SHI ranges from 1 (no hyperpigmentation) to 4 (maximum hyperpigmentation).
- Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 7 months ]The study team will monitor incidence, severity, and relatedness of adverse events throughout the study.
- Participant response to pre-post treatment regimens [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 10 months ]Study team will monitor incidence of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation after treatment. Subjects will begin topical regimen before first treatment and resume 7 days post final treatment to avoid hyperpigmentation after treatment.

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years to 75 Years (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||Yes|
- Healthy male, female, and non-binary adults between 18 and 75 years of age
- Fitzpatrick Skin Phototype V and VI
- Individuals deemed by the Investigator to have clinically significant hyperpigmentation on their face and desire treatment and correction of this condition
- Individuals willing to withhold aesthetic therapies (excluding those explicitly prescribed by the Investigator as pre-treatment) for the duration of the study
Women of childbearing potential who agree to take a urine pregnancy test at the Screening visit or when deemed by Investigator. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test and must not be lactating at Screening. Women must be willing and able to use an acceptable method of birth control (see below) during the study. Women will not be considered of childbearing potential if one or more of the following is documented:
- Postmenopausal for 12 months prior to initiation of the study
- Without a uterus +/- both ovaries prior to initiation of the study
- Bilateral tubal ligation 6 months prior to initiation of the study
Individuals of childbearing potential who use an acceptable method of contraception for the duration of the study. Acceptable modes of birth control include the following:
- Established use of hormonal contraception (oral, injectable, implanted, patch or vaginal ring)
- Barrier methods with spermicide: condom or occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository
- Intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)
- Surgical sterilization (e.g., vasectomy confirmed to be effective by sperm count check, tubal occlusion, hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy/oophorectomy)
- Abstinence from heterosexual intercourse, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal methods are not acceptable forms of contraception.
- Individuals who can read, speak, write, and understand English and who are willing to provide written informed consent.
