Having even-toned, flawless skin seems like an unattainable dream for many. Over time, there are many factors that can leave their mark and mar the appearance of our skin. No, we are not talking about acne scars or lesions, which is a completely different condition. We are referring to skin pigmentation, which is a result of sun spots, freckles and age spots, which result in us looking more tired and aged, even when we are not!
In our last post, we discussed in detail about the different causes of skin pigmentation as well as some natural ways you could protect yourself from it. In this post, we will look at some very effective cosmetic treatments for skin pigmentation in Melbourne.
- Laser Photo Rejuvenation
This is a revolutionary anti-ageing therapy that was developed by Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr, and has become a very popular treatment across the globe for treating signs of skin pigmentation, as well as conditions like rosacea, melasma and other effects of photoaging like fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and more.
In this procedure, intense pulses of light are directed over the area to be treated. Depending upon the area to be treated, this can last for up to an hour. One of the reasons for its popularity is that it causes minimal discomfort, and yet gives excellent results in reducing hyperpigmentation and creating an even skin tone. It also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which help to reduce the appearance of fine lines as well.
- Enzyme Therapy
The DMK Enzyme Therapy is a completely natural, skin revision system that is based on the principles of i) Removal of dead skin cells through exfoliation
ii) Rebuilding skin at the cellular level
iii) Protecting it from environmental factors
iv) Maintaining the optimum levels of the skin
This revolutionary treatment essentially works by ‘retraining’ the skin to work as it naturally should based on its genetic potential, under normal circumstances, and increase circulation to boost cellular regeneration. There are multiple modalities available under the DMK Enzyme Therapy, suitable for almost all types of skin conditions, right from acne, redness, course or uneven skin, wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores, sun damage, scarring and dull skin, apart from skin pigmentation. It also makes for a great complimentary treatment along with other treatments, to achieve complete skin rejuvenation.
- Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another popular treatment at our clinic for skin pigmentation. Chemical peels are great at evening out our skin tone, and they work really well for both mild as well as different types of hyperpigmentation like sun spots, melasma and even post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. They work by using different types of light acids to remove the damaged layers of the skin and encourage new cell turnover. Over a series of treatments, these peels will get the bright, smooth, radiant and undamaged skin to shine through.
At Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, we know that each of our patients is unique, and therefore will require a customized approach to skincare. This is why we will tailor our treatments after a detailed analysis of their skin type and requirements.
