Harley Skin and Laser offer a range of treatments for pigmentation removal, primarily we use IPL. Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin, which is made by our melanocyte cells. Pigmented lesions such as sunspots, age spots and freckles can be triggered by excessive sun exposure, age, hereditary factors or hormones. Pigmentation can occur on the face, hands, arms, shoulders and chest. You may notice your pigmentation becomes more apparent in the summer months; this is your skin’s response to an increase in sun exposure.
Age spots, sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and overexposure to the sun or sun-beds. From the age of about 40, the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however, they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance.
With our world-leading devices at Harley Skin and Laser Clinic Staffordshire we have a solution that enables us to achieve airbrushed and flawless skin for our patients. (See also treatment for skin peels.)
