Hyperpigmentation Conditions

Pigmented lesions on the face and body can develop over time due to the sun exposure, aging, hormones (melasma), pregnancy (chloasma) and skin damage. The pigment can be near the surface (easier to remove) or deeper in the skin (harder to remove). Generally, the longer the pigment has been present the harder it is to remove, but satisfactory reduction can usually be achieved in most patients.

There are various ways to remove unwanted facial and body pigmentation, but the method chosen depends on the nature and depth of the pigments. There is no single individual method of removing all pigments; in fact, in many cases, combination treatments are necessary. There are multiple treatment available to remove skin pigments.

In general, epidermal pigment is easier to eradicate than dermal pigment because of its proximity to the skin's surface.

The most important thing about pigmentation is that the patient follows all instructions and takes a long-term view to the process of skin lightening. There are very few quick fixes and people usually come to us having been disappointed elsewhere. Improving your pigmentation as much as possible (varies from person to person as we are all individuals) depends on a team–work approach between us and you.

When treating pigmentation, avoiding sun / UV exposure is crucial.
