Pigmentation treatment

Pigmentation treatment

Pigmentation treatments for dark spots, red spots and brown spots of skin are commonly requested. The most common disorders for which both women and men seek pigmentation treatment are melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Hyperpigmentation is the excess production of the skin pigment melanin, appearing as localized patches which are darker than the surrounding skin. The patches are typically non-raised, as the hyperpigmentation occurs beneath the top layer of skin. The pigmentation treatments help to reduce or eliminate these spots of colour that can be seen as uneven and blotchy skin. There are various combination of pigmentation treatments that are used for these treating uneven skin tones. We get requests for pigmentation treatments for:

  • REDUCING FRECKLES

Pigmentation treatments are used to deal with uneven skin color like freckles, melasma and age spots. There are a number of ways to treat pigmentation such as, cosmoceuticals, prescription medications, as well as chemical and laser treatments.

Combination of pigmentation treatments are used to treat uneven skin color including:

LASER TREATMENTS ( we have a multiple choices of wavelengths available to us) are often used for treating darker patches of skin when there is hyper pigmentation or other darker patches of skin that are not responsive to cosmoceuticals or skin peels. laser skin treatments work well but may require 4 or more treatments to achieve a great result. treatments such as fraxel, laser skin resurfacing are also used to treat pigment issues as well as a number of other lasers.

SKIN CARE (COSMOCEUTICALS) – we use medical strength cosmoceuticals, sometimes with prescription medications to help you even out skin colour. we use a combination of prescribed solutions, zo, swiss tec and alyria to give you the best possible combination of skin care.

prescription medications such as retinoids are sometimes used to aid in pigmentation treatments.

chemical peels such as the vi peel and others are used in conjunction with skin care to help reduce and remove pigmentation.

Lastly with all treatments the use of sunscreen is of prime importance in aiding in the treatment of pigmentation problems as well as in maintenance treatments.
