Pigmentation and Dark Spots
A bright, radiant, even complexion is often associated with youthfulness. Hyper pigmentation, sun damage, dark spots and discolouration of the skin occurs after many years of sun exposure. Melanin is a pigment in hair and skin that is responsible for skin colour and is also the skins protective system against the sun’s UV rays. Sun triggers melanin over production to protect skin, resulting in the “tanned” look.
Hyper pigmentation is a very difficult condition to treat, but good news; is it is not necessarily permanent. Hyper pigmentation may be improved or reversed with a good skin care regime and combination of treatments.
At Synergy Aesthetics and Laser Clinic, we recommend IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments for our fairer skinned patients who have brown discolouration, age spots and freckles, particularly on the face and chest. Our newest technology, ETHEREA-MX® LASER, can be used on any type of sun damage from mild to severe. The best way of prevention is through use of Medical Grade sunscreen, such as the Vivier® Products. It is never too late to start using a good sunblock!
Come in for a complementary Consultation to see which combination of treatments and products will be beneficial to improve your skin pigmentation.
