Reduce Hyperpigmentation with our unique & sophisticated engineered Laser technology
Hyperpigmentation is usually a harmless skin condition characterised by flat, dark-coloured pigmented patches on the skin compared to the normal surrounding skin, normally caused by an overproduction of melanin. It is relatively common amongst Meditteranean and Asian skin types and can cause the patient an immense amount of psychological distress.
There are different types of pigmentation, however, excessive sun exposure to pigmentation will only pronounce the darkening. The melanin in the skin absorbs damaging UVA and UVB rays acting as a protector from overexposure.
Types of pigmentation
Age or sun spots – a medical term referred as Solar Lentigines. These pigmented lesions are common amongst all skin types and occur due to excessive sun exposure. Sun damaged skin of this kind normally occurs on all parts of the hands, face and body.
Melasma – also known as Chloasma spots is normally caused by hormonal changes where an overproduction of melanin occurs. It has been reported pregnancy and some family planning methods can trigger pigmentation, especially on the face.
Acne or atrophic scarring – can leave pigmentation lesions for long periods of time.
