Wondering “can I get pigmentation treatment near me?” Contact the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic to find out how our laser pigmentation removal in Melbourne can effectively eliminate freckles, sunspots and other examples of unsightly skin pigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation refers to the darkening of the skin caused by increased melanin. It presents itself as freckles, age spots (or sunspots), and areas of the skin with a generally darker colour.
Many pregnant and pre-menopausal women will also experience melasma, which is characterised by pigmented splotches – usually on the face.
Hyperpigmentation can occur anywhere on the body, but usually appears on the hands or face. Contributors include:
Some people are genetically predisposed to skin pigmentation.
Excessive unprotected exposure to the sun causes damage to the skin. This damage is characterised by freckles, sun spots and age spots.
Birthmarks are areas of pigmented skin caused by an overgrowth of melanin-producing melanocytes. Birthmarks have no specific cause and can be categorised as a benign irregularity.
Skin trauma or damage can cause areas of pigmentation to appear.
Hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy, can affect the skin quite significantly.
The ageing process can often lead to age spots and general skin darkening.
Laser treatment for pigmentation can produce a fast and effective result on any area of the body.
At the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic we provide targeted laser pigmentation removal in Melbourne using laser photo rejuvenation. This method uses Laser light to stimulate skin renewal and rejuvenation, significantly reducing the size and prominence of skin pigmentation.
Treatment involves targeting the melanin in pigmented areas of the skin using pulses of light energy. Melanin is heated and broken down into particles small enough for the body to remove as waste.
Other successful treatments include Enzyme Therapy & Chemical Peels.
