|Pigmentation refers to any mark on the skin, which is dissimilar to an individual’s natural skin colour. An individual can experience hyperpigmentation whereby the skin looks darker than normal or hypopigmentation whereby the skin looks lighter than normal.
This change in colour is normally brought about due to the skin experiencing some form of trauma or damage. This trauma normally causes an increase in melanin production in the area. The pigment can also be stimulated through sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetics, and age.
There are many forms of pigmentation but the most common are age spots, sunspots, freckles, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and melasma. These types of pigmentation can make the skin look uneven, tired, and dull and therefore is a common concern for many clients.
There are a range of treatments we can provide these clients to provide a refreshed youthful look. A multi-modality treatment plan utilising the following devices can provide incredible results for your clients.
