What causes excessive skin pigmentation?
Sometimes, hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy and the contraceptive pill can result in a type of pigmentation known as Melasma or Chloasma. This may not be suitable to treat with IPL.
What treatments are available for pigmentation and sun spots?
- IPL: is the fastest way to treat brown pigmentation. Treated pigment will go darker for 7-10 days, then flake off or disappear, leaving brighter, smoother skin.
- Natural Peels: work to exfoliate pigment deposits and reverse skin damage.
- Vitamin A/Retinol and Vitamin C medical grade skincare: is clinically proven to reduce the effects of sun damage when used daily as part of your tailored, prescribed treatment plan.
