Reduce Pigmented Lesions

What is pigmentation?

When we talk about pigmented lesions we are usually referring to changes in the melanin (pigment) in the skin. These look like small patches of the skin that are a different colour to the normal skin tone and are usually localised deposits of excess melanin.

Pigmented lesions can cause sufferers frustration and anxiety, as they are usually associated with age, making people feel they look older than they wish.

Sun protection

Pigmented lesions may reappear over time, therefore it is important to use sunscreen to protect from further sun damage, preferably with 50 SPF.

Epidermal Pigmentation

Pigmentation deposits within the epidermis can be:

Solar Lentigines. These are also known as sunspots, liver spots or age spots. They are caused by UV exposure.

Lentigo Simplex. These are genetic and look similar to large freckles/moles.

Ephelides. Better known as freckles, these can be both genetic and UV triggered and are generally darker in summer, and lighter in winter.

Seborrhoeic keratosis. Are brown warty spots that are a sign of ageing skin.

These collections of excess melanin are most often found on the face, hands and decollete – areas that are commonly exposed to the sun. Sun damage is the leading cause of pigmented lesions.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatments work quickly and efficiently for epidermal pigmentation. These treatments kill the pigment-containing cells, resulting in epidermal necrosis and subsequent removal of pigment, which is replaced with normal epidermal skin.

Pigment treatments take between 10 -30 minutes, depending on the number of pigmented lesions. Treatments can be performed every 4 weeks and may take up to 3 treatments for full removal.

There is a mild warming sensation during treatment with some redness 12 hours post treatment. The treated lesion will develop a crust and darken for up to a week, until flaking of the melanin occurs. This crust lesion should not be removed but allowed to flake off naturally.

Chemical Peels

Epidermal pigmentation chemical peels treat surface pigmentation that lives higher in the skin and therefore does not need as harsh a peel to remove it. The pigmentation peel lightens the surface pigmentation through increased cell turnover, and the ascorbic acid and glutathione act as internal UV protection whilst brightening and lightening the skin.

This treatment can be performed every 4 weeks and can leave the skin dry for up to 5 days.

From £50

Treatments for Dermal Pigmentation

Dermal Pigmentation

Dermal pigmentation occurs in the deeper layers of the skin, it can be triggered by genetics, hormones, UV exposure, medications, or as a response to trauma experienced on the skin.

Melasma/Chloasma is a pigmentation disorder that usually presents on the face and in a symmetrical pattern.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH): is a temporary pigmentation response that is located where there has been inflammation previously. Such as; acne lesions, or repeated waxing of an area.

Dermal pigmentation treatments take a number of months and home care is essential. It is important to treat the root cause of the blemish, by regulating overproduction of melanin through daily application of melanin inhibitors at home, following the in-clinic procedures.
