Introducing the Next Generation of IPL; AFT
Pigmentation occurs when your melanocytes, the cells that are responsible for the colour of your skin, misbehave and too much melanin is produced leading to uneven colouration. Pigmentation can be a result of different environmental, genetic, or internal factors which include:
- Large dark spots as a result of UV exposure
- Freckles - a combination of a genetic predisposition and UV exposure
- Post inflammatory pigmentation caused by injury and trauma to the skin
- Melasma or Chloasma - symmetrical patches that are the result of hormonal fluctuations
- Vitiligo - autoimmune condition in which the body’s immune system attacks the pigment cells (melanocytes) causing pigment loss
It’s important to correctly diagnose the causes and type of pigmentation to ensure we take the best approach. If you’re looking to treat pigmentation, the first step is to book in for a consultation and analysis.
