Excessive sun exposure, aging, genetics, body hormone changes, medications, acne vulgaris or pregnancy can cause pigmentation and darkening of the skin. Pigmentation occurs when skin produces an excess amount of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that gives skin its color and is produced by the skin cells called melanocytes.
When melanocyte activity is stimulated by UV rays or other factors, pigment lesion occurs on the area where there is a large concentration of the cells. Some of the most common pigmentations are freckles, melasma and age spots.
Multiple non-surgical pigment lightening and removal methods are available which can provide fast and visible results. Consult our doctors today if you are suffering from stubborn pigmented lesions, age spots, acnes and uneven skin tone or are looking at removing birthmarks and unwanted tattoos.
