What causes pigmentation issues in the complexion?

The skin obtains its coloring (lightness or darkness) from melanin, made by special cells in the body. If these cells get damaged or if they malfunction, the production of melanin may become skewed in some way. Skin conditions involving and excess (or deficit) of melanin production include birthmarks, spots, moles, port wine stains, melasma, vitiligo, and albinism. Pigmentation issues may be caused by genetics, or may have their onset after excessive exposure to the sun. In any case, they often cause distress for the patient, who would prefer an even-toned complexion free from blemishes.

IPL Photofacial

Intense Pulsed Light is among the most effective treatment for addressing age spots, freckles, sun damage, facial redness, rosacea and other pigmentation issues. The light is emitted at multiple wavelengths targeting the melanin-producing skin cells. Heavily pigmented areas are diluted, fading the color of the skin’s surface.



The HydraFacial is a unique, non-invasive skincare solution that cleanses, exfoliates and extracts. Revitalizing serums are applied to the skin after a rejuvenating peel that strips the skin of impurities, oil, dirt, debris and makeup. An infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid is delivered to the pores, smoothing away imperfections and regenerating the complexion.
