Pigmentation is a relatively common skin problem as we get older but there are a number of ways it can be treated.

Skin discolouration tends to increase as we get older and is governed by a number of factors:

  • Genetics
  • Skin type
  • Sun exposure
  • Skin injury
  • Hormones/pregnancy
  • Environmental exposure

Common presentations include:

  • Birthmarks – usually flat, pigmented patches of varying size
  • Moles – Often raise, pigmented or pale lumps
  • Solar-related – Coloured patches due to sun damage
  • Melanoma – darker coloured patches of different size and shape. This pigmentation may not be deep and be within the skin’s upper layers

Treatments available with Med Spa Services Providers:

  • Dermamelan & Cosmalan
  • Obagi
  • Chemical Peels
  • Mesotherapy
