PIGMENTATION

Sun damage and pigmented skin

Pigmentation may appear in a variety of forms. It may range from sun damage, age spots, sun spots, freckles to many complex conditions such as melasma and hyper-pigmentation.


It is something that affects everyone and can appear not only on the face but other parts of the body.


We have a combination approach to deal with pigment primarily using laser but also incorporating peels and skincare.

Pigmentary Conditions 

Pigmentary conditions occurs when the skin produces more melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. This can make spots or patches of skin appear darker than surrounding areas.


Hyper-pigmentation is a common skin condition. It affects people of all skin types.

The cause of hyperpigmentation depends on the type of pigment spot. The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:

  • Sun exposure: the body produces more melanin to protect the skin from prolonged exposure to the sun. This can cause dark spots or patches on the skin called age spots or sun spots.

  • Skin inflammation: Areas of skin can darken after people have had inflammation of the skin. This can include acne, eczema, lupus, or an injury to the skin. People with darker skin are more likely to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

  • Melasma: Darker patches of skin can form when people experience hormonal changes. This type of hyperpigmentation is common during pregnancy.

  • Reactions to medications: Certain medications, such as antimalarial drugs and tricyclic antidepressants, can cause hyperpigmentation. In these cases, patches of skin may turn gray. Chemicals in topical treatments can also sometimes cause hyperpigmentation.

SKIN CARE AND PIGMENT

Skin Care plays an important part with pigment, certain ingredients like L-ascorbic acid and several different chemo-exfoliants will help speed up cell turn over, increasing the speed at which the body can remove the pigmentation, while also lightening and strengthening the skin. Coupled with laser and peel treatments, we recommend and offer a good skincare regime. This is a must to not only improve the desired outcome but to aid in recovery and maintain results as well.
