What is skin pigmentation?
Skin pigmentation refers to the colour of your skin. Whether you have dark skin or a lighter skin tone depends on melanin production in your skin and the type of melanin you have.
Melanin is a natural pigment that helps to give your skin, hair and eyes their colour. When your body’s production of melanin changes, you may see dark marks or darker patches of skin appear.
One skin condition that causes darker patches of skin is hyperpigmentation. You may see small dark patches form on the skin or it can affect larger parts of your body. The most common types of hyperpigmentation are freckles, sun spots and age spots (liver spots).
There are a number of factors that can trigger skin pigmentation such as sun exposure or acne scarring. However, with a course of laser treatment or a combination of laser skin pigmentation treatment and skin peels, clients in London can see a much more even skin tone.
What are the causes of skin pigmentation?
Changes in your body or an injury can cause your skin to become darker, or sometimes lighter in colour. Hyperpigmentation such as sun spots are the most common type of skin pigmentation. You can see its effect on several areas of your skin or in small patches. Below are some of the types and causes of skin pigmentation.
Age or sun spots
Skin pigment spots such as sun spots form because of sun exposure. Sun spots or age spots appear as darker patches of skin. They are typically found on the face, but can also appear on other areas of the body including the neck, hands and arms.
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
This type of skin pigmentation occurs when the skin has gone through an injury or trauma. If you suffer from severe acne which has left you with acne scars, you are likely to see this type of hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels and laser treatments are the most effective way to treat this type of hyperpigmentation.
Hormones – melasma pigmentation
Melasma is often a result of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. It’s a form of hyperpigmentation that sees larger patches of darker skin appear on the face. You are most likely to find melasma on your upper lip, but it can also develop on other areas of the face. While melasma tends to affect women more, men can also see its effects.
Laser treatment in London for skin pigmentation
If you’re looking for targeted skin pigmentation treatments, then laser treatment is a great way to treat and rejuvenate your skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of unwanted pigmentation such as sun spots, age spots and acne scars.
Laser photo-facial skin rejuvenation
At Skin Perfection’s London clinic, we offer laser photo-facial treatment to tackle skin pigmentation. Our laser specialists recommended this treatment to help reduce skin discolouration. It also gives your skin a much needed boost, making it look brighter and healthier than before.
It’s a great laser treatment for targeting sun damage, acne scarring and uneven skin tones and pigmentation. What’s more, it’s a comfortable treatment that works to tackle skin concerns on the surface and deeper within the skin. As an added benefit, this laser treatment requires little to no downtime. This means you can get back to your normal routine straight after your treatment.
Boost your results
To get the most out of your laser pigmentation treatment, we suggest combining laser treatment with one of our chemical peels. We offer different strengths of skin peels depending on your skin concern. For superficial skin pigmentation, a lighter peel will boost your results. If you have deeper pigmentation or skin damage, you will need a more powerful skin peel.
At your initial consultation, one of London clinic practitioners will talk you through our laser treatments to show how they work. They will also discuss how many treatments you will need and whether a combination of laser treatment and skin peels is right for you. Your consultation is also a great chance to ask any questions you might have.
Am I suitable for laser treatment?
Laser photo-facial treatment is only suitable for lighter to medium skin tones (1-3 and light skin 4). It is not suitable for darker skin tones. If you are not sure what your skin type is or whether you will be suitable for this treatment, please book a consultation. We also offer other treatment options, which we can walk you through. You will need a patch test before having any of our laser treatments.
