A most common and saddest misconception many people have about pigmentation is that it will simply disappear without the help of any treatment. While there are very few types of pigmentation that do fade away slightly on their own, most pigmentation issues need the assistance of powerful active ingredients combined with the most effective dermatological treatments available to get rid of them successfully. At The Victorian Dermal Institute we offer the following skin-enhancing treatments to provide healthier-looking skin:

  1. Tackle superficial discolouration with microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is best for skin types with superficial and marginal discolouration issues. This skin care treatment method gently removes the topmost layer of skin to eradicate pigmentation symptoms such as sunspots.

  1. Target stubborn spots with Chemical peels

Another effective skin treatment type is chemical peels which fight against pigmentation issues. Dermatologists love chemical peels as they target those more stubborn spots and produce desired results quicker. Peels contain powerful ingredients that remove pigmentation at a deeper level.

  1. For sun-induced pigmentation, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a great option

Clear up discolouration caused by extensive sun exposure with IPL. This treatment method involves light-based energy vibrated onto the skin that targets the affected areas and lifts the discolouration. IPL works on a secondary level also by manipulating the blood vessels for enhanced results.

  1. For major pigmentation issues, Fractional Laser Resurfacing can work wonders

Tenacious discolouration benefits best from Fractional Laser Resurfacing treatments that stimulate the skin’s innate healing abilities. By creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin, fresh skin can surface, reducing the effects of pigmentation. Effective laser treatment products available include Clear + Brilliant.

Take care of your skin’s pigmentation issues once and for all. Minimal discolouration issues can easily be dealt with using microdermabrasion treatments. For more challenging pigmentation, chemical peels, IPL and fractional laser resurfacing have been used to incredible effect.
