Pigmentation is a skin condition that virtually all of us will suffer from at some point in our lives. It affects both men and women of all ages.The medium to dark brown spots or melasma patches usually appear on the skin after the skin has been burnt in the sun, and can appear not necessarily immediately after the burning but sometimes years later when the skin is subjected to further UV A and B rays. Pigmentations have various origins amoung which include genetics, race, pregnancy, oral contraception and menopause etc. Solar radicals are also major triggering factors that increase the incidence of newly appearing pigmentation and the re-appearance of blemishes already established.
Unfortunately once the melanocytes have been damaged, they can never be repaired completely.Therefore it is important to understand that it is possible for clinical treatments to fade pigmentation, sometimes significantly, however there is no treatment available on the market or within any clinic that will completely eradicate the pigmentation you already have.
Therefore we highly recommend that in order to avoid and minimize this skin problem, EVERYBODY, no matter how light or dark your skin colour, wears a minimum SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 30 during the winter months of November to March, and a minimum SPF 50 during the sunshine months. Obviously if you go to very hot climates or skiing at any time of the year it is important to keep wearing an SPF 50. If you are in constant sunshine or post aesthetic treatments an SPF 50+ is strongly advised. Note that all SPF creams have a different duration effect on the skin, some 5 hours and some up to 12 hours, so please read the label instructions carefully and remember to reapply . If you are swimming or sweating a lot then dab your skin with a tissue regularly and reapply every 4 hours regardless.
Sometimes women notice darkened pigmentation appear throughout pregnancy. The ‘butterfly’ pigmentation appears across the nose and cheeks as a butterfly shape. This can sometimes go by itself after pregnancy or can at least become lighter. This is why we do not offer treatments for this type of pigmentation whilst you are pregnant. Some women also find they can develop pigmentation after taking ceratain types of contraceptive pill. This pigmentation unfortunately rarely fades but can be treated in the clinic.

It is very important that the Mesoestetic Repair Cream and SPF 50+ be used for at least 2 weeks post treatment. The Peel will feel fairly warm when on the skin but cools quickly with the Repair Cream.
Courses of treatments for pigmentation are essential for results as it is a gradual process to achieve a lightening of the melasma.The amount of treatments required will depend on the colour of your individual pigmentation and your own personal desired results.
