Although harmless, pigmentation spots are usually unsightly. Most people affected try to get rid of them. They usually appear because of the prolonged exposure to sunlight, certain medicines or ageing, also due to the melanin accumulations, a substance that gives colour to the skin. The areas prone to pigmentation spots are the cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and upper lip but they also occur on the forearms, chest, neck and back, the most popular and widespread pigmentation spots being freckles.
Removing freckles and other skin spots is fast, safe and with minimum discomfort at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa, where our expert aestheticians are at your disposal with the latest treatments.
Spot colour can vary depending on their depth, from brown, on skin's surface, to blue, grey or brown grey, deeper in the dermis. Before starting any treatment you will discuss with our doctors, to determine pigmentation's depth, a very important detail for choosing the right treatment.
A modern treatment with spectacular results in pigmentation spots removal is the laser treatment, which produces the skin's self-defense through the restoration of the pigmented cells' normal position in the skin. We recommend 4-6 sessions, repeated every 2-4 weeks to improve the accumulation of melanin.
A treatment for pigmentation spots removal similar to the laser is the IPL treatment, which uses intense pulsed light. This is a high intensity beam of white light, which destroys the melanin accumulations, coagulates blood vessels in the treated area and increases collagen synthesis. After the use of this treatment it is not possible to get rid of superficial pigmentations.
An alternative to IPL laser treatment is the chemical peel, a procedure made with or without local anaesthesia, according to your wishes. On the skin, a solution is applied which produces a superficial and controlled 'burn' to remove the epidermis containing pigment. This treatment takes from 5-10 days, according to your needs, after which it is recommended to avoid sun exposure for a period of 6 months.
