Pigmentation that develops on the skins surface is an effect caused by overstimulation of melanocytes within the skin. Melanin is the pigment released by the melanocyte cells when exposed to UV rays. Each individual reacts differently to this exposure; some develop a nice even tan, some burn and some develop patchy spots of uneven pigmentation. This typically occurs from years of tanning and being exposed without sunscreen.
There are several treatments that we provide to help treat and prevent pigmentation. Active serums with retinaldehyde, IPL rejuvenation, peels and regular application of a good sunscreen are all beneficial in keeping unsightly pigmentation and signs of skin damage at bay.
