Hyperpigmentation / Melasma

Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin colour of people of any race.

Age or “liver” spots

Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage, and are referred to by doctors as solar lentigines. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun. Melasma or chloasma spots are similar in appearance to age spots but are larger areas of darkened skin that appear most often as a result of hormonal changes. Pregnancy, for example, can trigger overproduction of melanin that causes the “mask of pregnancy” on the face and darkened skin on the abdomen and other areas. Women who take birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation because their bodies undergo similar kind of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin disorder. Symptoms include facial redness, a burning sensation and inflamed pustules. The cause of rosacea is unknown, but we know that the inflammatory symptoms are primarily triggered by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Almost all other bacteria on our skin contribute to a healthy skin and should be left intact. Rosea / Redness prone skin generally tends to be sensitive so with the right calming skincare
routine it can be managed. We also offer in clinic treatments such tailored medical facials. Treatments Alumier, ZO skinhealth.
