While not all spots and pigmentation are a like, there are two main types; Hyperpigmentation and Hypopigmentation,
- Hyperpigmentation is where areas become darker
- Hypopigmentation is where areas of the skin become lighter
Dark spots (Hyperpigmentation) is more common, and is caused by an increase in melanin, which the cell that produces the colour in our skin – the more melanin we have, the darker our skin.
One of the most common dark spot concerns is what’s called Melasma, which typically looks like patches of grey or tan/brown on the face, neck, chest and hands. Sun exposure, stress, hormonal changes and ageing cause these cells to produce excess pigment, resulting in brown patches. It’s also commonly seen on women during pregnancy.
We understand the importance of a clear complexion and how it can affect our confidence, that’s why we have a range of skin treatments available at Caci to reduce pigmentation and treat sun damage.
A tailored programme of laser treatments teamed with skin rejuvenation treatments such as microdermabrasion is particularly effective for the treatment of pigmentation and sun damage. You also need to remember to protect your skin from sun exposure, apply sunblock everyday - even when there’s no sun! And arm yourself with antioxidants; Murad Essential C Range repairs sun damaged skin and also protects against future damage.
