Spot the Freckle
Hyperpigmentation can be a small amount of freckles all over, or patches of darker areas which can be caused by many different things, all of which require varying skin treatments.
It’s very common (especially in sunnier conditions) and is usually a 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.
We are seeing a lot more hormonal pigmentation (melasma) these days, largely due to sun damage and also an increased use of the birth control pill.
As with everything, prevention is better than cure. Using high factor, quality sunscreens is our first line of defence, but if you are looking to get a Pigment Reduction, then The Candela GentleLase Pro is a market-leading option for tackling pigmentation on face blemishes, sun spots & unwanted freckles.
It works on age spots and pigmentation removal in the same way as it works for hair removal, by targeting the melanin content of the skin. With an adjustable target size and fast treatment.
