Even out your skin tone with our range of pigmentation treatments
We all know the drill – wear sunscreen. We can’t express enough how important this is, even in the colder months the sun can still be strong enough to cause aging, sun spots and worse, even if it feels cold outside in Laser Pigmentation .
But sometimes, we get areas of skin that become darker or lighter than the rest. This could be due to sun damage, and can also be caused by our genes or by certain medical conditions and hormone imbalances. These patches are known as areas of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. The color of our skin is dictated by the amount of melanin we have. The more melanin, the darker our skin. When our skin is damaged or weakened by the sun or by other factors, it produces more melanin in order to help protect it, resulting in darker patches, or hyperpigmentation. Conversely, if the cells that produce melanin get damaged, say by heavily picking at a spot or being burnt, they can no longer produce melanin, leading to hypopigmentation, or, areas that are lighter. Either way, the skin tone becomes uneven.
Help is at hand however. Unevenly pigmented skin can be treated at our salon by eMatrix, derma rolling, chemical peels and IPL.
