Pigmentation

Pigmented blotches or lentigines are darkened areas on the skin which are generally the result of sun exposure stimulating the production of melanin in the body. This gives the skin an aged appearance and occurs commonly on the face, neck and hands.

Balwyn Skin treatment

These spots are also known as ‘sun spots’ or ‘age spots’ and can be treated with IPL, which is highly effective in reducing these blemishes on all areas of the body. Prior to treatment of any pigmented areas, a doctor will assess all the lesions. Our dermal therapist will then advise on skin care to minimise their return.
