The Causes of Pigmentation

Pigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production, but the main ones are sun exposure, hormonal influences, age and skin injuries or inflammation.

We offer a range of treatments designed to help create a smoother, more uniform skin tone. The right one for you will depend on your concerns, underlying skin tone and the cause of your pigmentation issue.

Our Treatments for Pigmentation

Picosecond laser

A picosecond laser is a laser which emits optical pulses with a duration between 1 ps and (usually) some tens of picoseconds. It thus also belongs to the category of ultrafast lasers or ultrashort pulse lasers.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne, sun damage, pigmentation and fine wrinkles. Chemical peels have been performed by dermatologists for over 50 years and have a proven safety record.

Glutathione for skin lightening

Glutathione is an anti-oxidant, naturally present in the body, that inhibits the production of melanin. As melanin is the substance responsible for pigmentation in the skin, glutathione can have a dramatic and positive effect on skin tone and colour.

Carbon laser peel

Carbon laser peel is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatment uses a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This skin rejuvenation procedure is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage and stretch marks.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and treats various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
