Do you keep finding spots that are becoming more and more noticeable on your skin? Are sun spots and age spots affecting your skin tone?
What causes Pigmentation?
Ageing and repeated exposure to the sun (UV rays), causes the melanin-producing cells to lose their ability to distribute pigment evenly,resulting in dark spots and blotches that appear on the skin. Dark skin spots, freckles, blotches and uneven tanning are all examples of pigmentation. This occurs primarily in areas that have most exposure to sun, including face, neck, and hands.
Pregnancy and even the use of the contraceptive pill can also instigate pigmentation. The increased levels of oestrogen during these times can trigger melanin producing hormones, which leads to the development of these darker skin spots.
Most people will require 2-3 pigmentation removal treatments spaced 3 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
However it is still an individual process and depends on the depth and type of pigment.
Some will notice a 50% reduction in colour just after one treatment!
Certain medications may affect your laser pigmentation removal treatment if they are photosensitive (such as Roaccutane and Retin A) which can cause pigmentation. If you are taking any medications it is best to inform your Laser Specialist so they can ensure the best possible treatment results for you.
