Pigmentation

Pigmentation is the brown colour in the skin which is determined by the pigment called melanin. Skin cells produce melanin however, when they are damaged or become unhealthy the melanin production is affected and can create skin pigmentation disorders which means pigment becomes darker in patches (if too much melanin is created) or lighter (if too little melanin is produced).

Skin pigmentation disorders most commonly manifest on the face and body as small patches of darkened skin, as melanin production is increased during pregnancy and through sun damage, with "age spots" becoming more common in elderly people.

Age Spots, Lentigos, Liver Spots, Sun Spots and Birthmarks are all forms of hyperpigmentation and although they have no effect on our health, they can be unsightly and may leave us lacking self-confidence.

As well as using broad spectrum sun protection to protect the skin from further skin damage, we have a number of proven effective treatments to reduce the appearance of pigmentation.

We are committed to improving and maintaining skin health using Perk and HydraFacial. So much so, that in fact we created a whole new concept in skincare and it's available right here at MediZen! Our MediFacial provides you with the best professional skin care solutions based on your skin’s actual needs. Our experts independently assess your skin by taking a ‘skin photo’ with the Visia 2D skin system which is then analysed to get an accurate diagnosis of the health of your skin. Our skincare specialists will then discuss your current skincare regime and any concerns that you have regarding your complexion. Next, depending on what your skin requires and the amount you wish to spend, we will recommend a skincare plan to get and keep your skin looking great.

Treat Pigmentation at MediZen with the following recommended Treatments

HydraFacial

HydraFacial is the ultimate skin detoxifying and deep cleansing experience. This painfree “Ultimate Facial” treatment replaces separate lymphatic drainage, microdermabrasion, peels, extraction, infusion, hydration and light emitting diode treatments and combines cleansing, exfoliation, detoxification, extraction, hydration and protection to leave your skin feeling refreshed and looking great. This treatment forms the basis for a Skin Health for Life programme to ensure that your skin continues to look its best everyday.

eTwo Skin Rejuvenation

eTwo is one of our latest, most advanced ways to enhance the appearance, texture, radiance and elasticity of any skin type. Unlike similar treatments that use laser technology, eTwo uses gentle energy currents to stimulate renewal in the deep layers of the skin. This ensures a long-lasting and great looking result, and happens whilst keeping your skin’s surface (the epidermis) intact and protected from damage.

3JUVE

3JUVE combines the UK's three most popular, non-invasive anti-ageing technologies to reduce the three main symptoms that ageing skin can exhibit: Lines and wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation and a loss of firmness and elasticity. Utilising a simple three-step treatment, 3JUVE provides optimum stimulation of your skin (the dermis and epidermis), resulting in unprecedented collagen renewal and an even skin tone.

Laser and IPL for Pigmentation

At MediZen, we use laser and IPL technology to return abnormally pigmented skin back to its normal colour. You’ll start to notice a steady improvement in the clarity of your skin after the first couple of treatments. Like most laser treatments, Skin Pigmentation Removal works by using specific wavelengths or colours of light to deliver energy into the skin tissues. This energy is absorbed by the brown pigment, without damaging any of the surrounding skin, and, over time, the excess pigment gradually fades.
