Pigmentation & Sun Damage

Pigmentation is a common skin concern for NZ women

Treat Pigmentation & Sun Damage 

While many of us enjoy the outdoors and love the sun, this isn’t necessarily what’s best for our skin! Around 80% of the ‘signs of ageing’ can be attributed to sun damage, and with most of it occurring from incidental day-to-day exposure (rather than time spent at the beach), sun damage is something many of us can relate to.

Signs of Sun Damage 

  • Uneven skin tone 
  • Pigmentation spots and brown patches 
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Lines & wrinkles 
  • Red veins and other signs of facial redness

Pigmentation is a common skin condition and is a particular concern for New Zealand women, due to our harsh sunlight which is more prevalent in the southern hemisphere. 

Types of Pigmentation 

  • Hypopigmentation: Where areas of the skin become lighter while Hyperpigmentation is where areas become darker.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Where dark spots appear on the skin. This is more the more common of the two and caused by an increase in melanin. One of the most common hyperpigmentary problems is Melasma. This condition is characterized by tan or brown patches on the face. The most common sites of involvement are the cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead, and upper lips. 

What causes Melasma?

Causes of hyperpigmentation include exposure to sunlight, pregnancy, antibiotics and other medications.
