Pigmentation Correction & Removal
Sun damage is one of the leading contributors to ageing skin.
Pigmentation is a natural process and usually develops in the form of age spots freckles or larger patches of discoloured skin.
Sun exposure is what triggers your body to produce melanin. Melanin is stimulated causing hyper-pigmentation condition to form on at the base of the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis.
Many factors contribute to the production of pigmentation, however exposure to sunlight, hormones and medications are usually the primary contributors.

Excess pigmentation or darker areas of skin, can be related to hormonal imbalances, medically know as melasma or chloasma.
It commonly appears in females during and after pregnancy or due to oral contraception pills.
Pigmentation can also be caused by skin conditions such as post acne, cuts, open wounds, inflammation and surgery.
How does the Treatment work?
Laser pigment removal works by the laser being attracted to the melanin in the skin which absorbs the light and is drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.
Once drawn to the surface the pigmentation will appear darker it will dry and fall off the treated area.
