PIGMENTATION TREATMENT 2018-10-10T04:57:42+00:00

What is Pigmentation Treatment?

The excessive skin pigmentation is triggered when melanocytes, or the pigment-producing cells, produce and dispose melanin abnormally. Melanocytes determine the skin colour whilst melanin naturally protects the skin by absorbing UV radiation. The production of melanin is dependent on the sun exposure or UV radiation.

Aside from exposure to sun and UV radiation, hormonal imbalance, skin trauma and congenital disorder, excessive skin pigmentation is also one of the first signs of ageing, caused by uneven pigmentation. Our treatment for skin pigmentation Sydney will use light-based treatment, targeting melanin to clear damaged pigmented lesions from the body.

Our Bella Pelle Cosmetic Clinic is using top-of-the –line and very professional, high quality, and original Cynosure lasers and these 3 lasers can be used together for the maximum and optimum result of the pigmentation and Melasma treatment combined with a total care including our professional skincare products.

Pigmentation

The sun, skin ageing and genetics are among the main factors that influence skin pigmentation. In fact, from the age of 30, they can cause disruption to the production and distribution mechanism of melanin, the pigment that is responsible for the skin’s colouring. Melanin is therefore distributed unevenly in the skin and accumulates at the surface of the epidermis. Therefore, skin pigmentation becomes uneven and dark spots form on the surface.

This can be the result of different problems:

Lentigo, is also called age spots if it is mainly due to the intrinsic ageing of the skin, or solar lentigo if it is caused by regular and considerable sun exposure.

Liver spots, also called ephelids.

Post-inflammatory pigmentation, following an acne spot for example. The mark is then due to an excess of melanin produced by the inflammation.
While these marks are completely harmless, they can be unsightly.

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem. The condition causes dark, discolored patches on your skin. It’s also called chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy,” when it occurs in pregnant women. The condition is much more common in women than men, though men can get it too.

Melasma causes patches of discoloration. The patches are darker than your typical skin color. It typically occurs on the face and is symmetrical, with matching marks on both sides of your face. Other areas of your body that are often exposed to sun can also develop melasma.

Brownish colored patches usually appear on the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, chin, neck, and forearms. The skin discoloration doesn’t do any physical harm, but you may feel self-conscious about the way it looks.

2. We are targeting and treating Pigmentation and Melasma of not only epidermis but also dermis layer by mixing and matching 3 major lasers. This can lead to decrease a recurrence rate and removal of the Pgmentation and Melasma quicker.

If you treat only the epidermis, the Pigmentation and Melasma can re-emerge easily and the treatment is not effective.

It captures information from 6 areas affecting complexion skin health:

  • Wrinkles, red and brown spots, pores, evenness, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), and UV spots.
  • It will help to determine your facial rejuvenation program and will also include recommendations for ongoing skin health and home care routines.
  • It can also be used for reviews over time to compare your skin’s progress.

Our total care package is from consulting and recommending our professional line of skincare products and managing patients’ needs according to the skin analysis for preparing healthier skin prior to the treatments for keeping the better results. Also we are offering more gentle skin products for the sensitive skin condition after the treatments and scheduling follow up visits to assess your healing progress. Our professional skincare products are essential and central to preparation and outcomes and complement all the treatments.

Before & After
