Do you ever look back at old photos and wish you still had that that lovely, youthful skin? For many of us, our care-free days with beautiful, radiant skin have been replaced with fine lines, uneven tone and daily anti-ageing routines. Wrinkles are just one giveaway for our age, but perhaps even more so is pigmentation.
Pigmentation includes freckles, dark brown patches and the dreaded “age spots”. Age spots are caused by an over-production of melanin (skin pigment) in the skin. They become more noticeable with age and sun exposure. Hormonal changes, pregnancy or taking the pill can also impact the melanin in your skin. The utmost care must be taken when treating pigmentation as many treatments can cause adverse side effects. We will discuss these along with the leading pigmentation treatment in Melbourne.
Pigmentation Treatment – What You Need To Know
Pigmentation is one of the harder conditions to treat – it has a nasty habit of returning, particularly if you don’t take care to cover up (or avoid exposure) when in the sun. It is sensitive to heat, so any form of treatment that generates heat in the skin will actually make the condition worse. Some treatments can cause hyperpigmentation following treatment. You may see some improvement initially, with the condition to return worse than it was before. If you visit a clinic who suggests using IPL, you’re in the wrong place.
Depending on your skin type, the condition and age of your skin, you will need a tailored skincare plan. To extend the results of your treatment, maintenance treatments may be recommended.
