Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin, which is made by melanocyte cells. Pigmentation occurs when these cells become damaged or unhealthy. Excessive sun exposure, age, medication, and hormones are the main causes of pigmentation. Pigmentation can occur on the face, hands, arms, and chest and may at times be difficult to treat.
Illness or injury can cause your skin to change colour, becoming darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation).
Types of hyperpigmentation include age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Types of hypopigmentation include vitiligo and albinism
We offer various treatments for pigmentation, such as Microneedling, IPL Skin Rejuvenation and Chemical Peels
