Skin pigmentation is caused by an abnormal production of melanin. Skin pigmentation and hyper pigmentation can be recognised as dark patches of skin. There are numerous catalysts for hyperpigmentation; sun exposure, the use of certain cosmetics and toiletries, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, genetics and aging are amongst them.

Pigmentation can occur in all skin tones; however, it is more common in darker skin shades. Furthermore, there are a number of different types of skin pigmentation; this includes albianism, melasma, pigment loss after skin damage, vitiligo (smooth, white patches) and lentigo (age spots).

Fortunately, there is a wide array of treatment types available at skin care clinics – such as Prescription Skin Care – that can target and reduce skin pigmentation.  A thorough consultation with a practitioner is essential in ensuring your individual needs are catered for, and the most apposite treatment is recommended for you.

Any area of skin that has uneven skin tone, freckles and age spots can be safely and effectively treated with laser treatment for skin pigmentation.

Further, at Prescription Skin Care, various treatments for skin pigmentation disorders are available; one of these is the use of the Dermaroller in collagen induction therapy, which has numerous benefits including lessening the prominence of skin pigmentation.

Other treatments include the use of fraxel lasers, Intense Pulse Lasers (IPL), chemical peels, medical and hormonal prescriptions and cosmeceutical-grade skincare – as well as natural remedies. You can also prevent and manage skin pigmentation by avoiding overexposure to the sun, and allowing acne scars to properly heal.
