How Pigmentation defined?

Pigmented lesions (sometimes referred to as age spots or sun spots) on skin are caused by a proliferation of melanocytes in the skin. Melanocytes contain the cells that manufacture melanin, the dark pigment.

Pigmentation can be caused by various things.

  • Hormonal, especially on upper lip or the butterfly pigmentation which is darkening of skin over nose and cheeks area, usually post pregnancy and also referred to as pregnancy mask.
  • After burns or post traumatic pigmentation, which can be caused by mechanical (dent left after an injury by object for example) or chemical (such as chemical burns) trauma to skin.
  • Post acne spots, which sit quite deep in the skin and can sometimes take years to get rid of or for some skins acne scarring can even be permanent (this is particularly true for darker skins)
  • One of the most common causes of pigmentation is sun damage to your skin. Sun spots, also called age spots usually appear after 35-40 and cause a lot of headache to many people. Usually this is kind of a payback for the abuse that we give our skin in our teens and twenties. Skin remembers this and the stored sun exposure comes out to the surface some years later. Believe it or not, the darker this particular type of pigmentation is the easier it is to get rid of it, particularly using a light-based device such as Laser or IPL skin rejuvenation.

Vascular Condition

Skin blemishes (sometimes called broken capillaries or enlarged capillaries) which happen due to abnormal blood vessels located directly under your skin's surface are called vascular lesions.

Rosacea is believed to be hereditary, but can worsen with exposure to various triggers including extreme temperatures, sunlight, stress and certain medications and foods.

Rosacea usually appears in phases:
  • Pre-rosacea - simple tendency to flush or blush easily. Possible progression to a persistent redness in the central portion of your face, particularly your nose. This redness results from the dilation of blood vessels close to skin's surface. This phase may sometimes be referred to as pre-rosacea.
  • Vascular rosacea - worsening of signs and symptoms. When small blood vessels on your nose and cheeks swell and become visible (telangiectasia). Skin may also become more sensitive and this can be accompanied by oily skin and dandruff.
  • Inflammatory rosacea - when small, red bumps or pustules may appear and persist, spreading across your nose, cheeks, forehead and chin.

Moles

Moles normally appear during the first 20 years of life, but sometimes can also appear later in life. Moles are not stable. They can grow and go trough changes of maturation. Moles may darken with exposure to sun, birth control pills, and hormonal changes such as pregnancy.

Spots

It is estimated that the majority of the people suffer from some sort of the facial spots or pigmentation due to sun-damage. One of the major side effects of spending time in the sun are spots, sun-spots, age-spots, freckles and larger patches of uneven pigmentation that can really mar otherwise beautiful skin.

Melbourne Facials Pigmentation Treatment Options

A variety of technologies are utilized, often in combination, to treat the many forms of this condition. Facial spider veins or telengiectasias are also common and easily treated with a variety of laser technologies. Intense Pulsed light is the most common and the most effective of technologies utilised.

pigmentation treatment

Treatment may include light or electro therapy, dermal fillers or peels, depending on the nature of the condition.

  • PDT - Photodynamic therapy is a light activated treatment that selectively treats problem areas. It can treat acne, spots and pigmentation. Read more...
  • IPL - Intense Pulsed Light is an exceptionally versatile treatment option for skin rejuvenation, hair removal, pigmentation as well as vascular conditions. For pigmentation the light targets melanin [pigment in the lesion] and effectively brings it to the surface. The pigmented spot darkens and then scabs off over a week or two. For Vascular issues IPL targets the tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin by heating these vessels, destroying malfunctioning capillaries so that blood flow will be directed to the deeper blood vessels, where it belongs. The body then reabsorbs these damaged cells, naturally eliminating them through its own systems. Treatment is safe, fast and gentle, typically taking less than 15 minutes. In just a few sessions, and sometimes in a single treatment, the appearance of skin and its condition can be dramatically improved. Read more...
  • Medi Peel - Superficial peels work by restoring the smooth contour of your skin by stimulating more of the skin's natural building material. Read more...
  • Skeyndor MesoBright - One of the most advanced modern cosmetic procedures that is non invasive and has no down time. It lightens pigmented skins and skin tones and restores luminosity to the skin on your face and/ or body. Read more...

Other Treatments

  • Antibiotics provide some benefit, but most rosacea sufferers relied upon covering their skin with layers of heavy makeup
  • Vitamin C and A - to rebuild the skin
  • Medications - to fight sebum and bacteria
  • Light treatments to reduce bacteria in the skin and improve healing

NOTE: No sun exposure 4-6wks before and after IPL treatments. No sun exposure post peels for 2 weeks. Extreme caution needed to avoid sunlight (in fact all light) for 24hrs post PDT, after 24hrs IPL's sun restrictions apply. High SPF sun block and sun avoidance is suggested after all treatments
