We offer a range of cosmetic treatments to assist with the pigmentation of the skin.
Do you have darks spots on your face that just appeared there over time? You could be suffering from skin pigmentation.
What is Pigmentation?
The word ‘Pigmentation’ means ‘colouring’; therefore, we could link skin pigmentation disorders with the colour of our skin. ‘Melanin’ is a pigment made from special cells, from which our skin gets its colour. If these special cells get damaged, it could affect the production of Melanin. This can make the skin look uneven, dull, worn-out or damaged which can impact on the ageing process of the skin.
What causes pigmentation?
- It could be hormonal
- Too much sun exposure
- Damaged skin
- Hereditary reasons
- The excessive production of the pigment called melanin causes the skin to become darker
On which parts of the body can pigmentation appear?
Some pigmentation disorders affect parts of the skin while others could affect the entire body.
Types of Pigmentation:
- Freckles (one or many).
- Sunspots, age spots and liver spots which are caused by sun exposure.
- Melasma, also known as the ‘pregnancy mask,’ is caused by hormonal changes.
At Zen Medispa in Sydney, we have a range of treatments that could be recommended to help treat your pigmentation. These include:
Pigmentation develops as a reaction to UV-induced trauma, resulting in stimulation of melanin production. Melanin (or the pigment) is the skin’s first line of defence to further damage and increased melanin in the skin results in freckles and brown spots. Over time, sun damage can cause these sun spots to become larger, commonly referred to as ‘age spots’ as they are often seen in the later years.
Treatment times vary between 15 – 30 minutes depending upon the type of pigmentation and size of the area being treated. For optimum results Zen Medispa suggests four to six treatments.
Some patients may experience a slight tingling or burning sensation during treatment. To help manage your comfort we apply a combination of topical and oral analgesics one hour before the procedure.
