Pigment Reduction


Living near the beach is one of our favorite things in life and we wouldn’t want it any other way. However  even when we use high quality sun screen and cover up, beach life means we generally get a little more sun than we should! Although pigmentation is caused by many reasons like hormonal changes etc, one of the main reasons for premature ageing of the skin is sun exposure! Pigmentation and age spots can leave us with an uneven skin tone that adds to the premature signs of ageing which we’d like to address.

Pigmentation reduction treatments can be performed easily with our Candela laser machines. The process called photorejuvenation, uses light based technology to target unwanted pigment without harming the surrounding skin. In just a few sessions, pigment looks lighter and skin looks clearer and younger. Pigment reduction rejuvenates the face on many levels but primarily works to remove pigmented skin such as age spots, hyper-pigmentation, freckles and vascular lesions such as broken capillaries and rosacea.

Regardless of what we can do in clinic your best defence against photo – ageing is to use quality sun protection and limit your exposure to the sun wherever possible. Even in the car to protect your hands from premature ageing!
