Skin gets its colour from a pigment called Melanin. Hyper-pigmentation occurs when the body overproduces melanin. This is deposited in the dermis, often in patches. This can be caused by hormones, pregnancy, acne scars and sun exposure.
SkinBase™ Intense Pulsed Light, photo rejuvenation therapy uses beams of light energy to target the melanin in the skin and treat Hyper-pigmentation. We recommend a course of 3-6 at 2-3 week intervals. Photo rejuvenation therapy will also work wonders on any fine lines and wrinkles and flood the skin surface with new collagen for a more youthful complexion.
SkinBase™ microdermabrasion (MD) facials are also very effective at treating pigmentation. MD uses tiny exfoliating crystals to remove the very outermost layer of skin. A course of treatment will allow the therapist to remove pigmentation layer by layer.
Make sure to wear a high factor skin protection at all times during and after treatment to prevent pigmentation recurring.
