Pigmentation occurs in two different forms; passive and inflammatory. Inflammatory pigmentation occurs as a result of the activation of our skin’s natural defence mechanisms. Melanin moves up to defend against trauma caused by factors such as sun exposure, poor products or injury.
Passive pigmentation results from an internal imbalance which stimulates the melanin stimulating hormone. These imbalances can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, the contraceptive pill and various medications.
Solution: We revise pigmentation, brighten and refresh the skin by removing dead cell build up, the accumulation of melanin (dark patches) and suppress further melanin production by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase in the skin. We analyse the individual case of pigmentation and tailor a targeted treatment program.
