Have you noticed age spots, freckles, darkened patches or melasma appearing on your face? Are these pigmented patches even appear on your body like the upper back, arms, legs or buttocks? How does hyperpigmentation start? And what treatments are able to lift these or prevent them?
How does hyperpigmentation start?
Pigmentation occurs when excess melanin (skin pigment) has been stimulated and deposited unevenly. Melanin is the natural pigment that gives your skin, hair and eyes their colour. There are a number of factors that can trigger an increase in melanin production, but generally the main causes are sun exposure, hormonal changes, age, injuries to your skin or inflammation.
The most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation are;
- Laser photofacial skin rejuvenation improves skin tone and texture. The treatment has minimal downtime. It’s suitable for a range of conditions including sun damage, wide and localised areas of discolouration. And last but not least ageing skin.
- Laser pigmentation removal is a targeted laser treatment. It’s designed to remove superficial and deeper pigmentation. As well as sun damaged areas on the face, forehead, shoulders and arms.
- Skin peels or resurfacers help to improve skin texture. They’re suitable for a range of conditions. These conditions include pigmentation . In addition they’re available in different strengths with different downtimes according to your skin condition
- Dermapen microneedling is for all skin types, but is a particularly advantageous solution for dark skin tones, where laser treatments may not be the safest option due to further pigmentation risks.
