Pigmentation

Did you know that worldwide 90% of people over 50 will suffer from some form of pigmentation? It is therefore not surprising that it is one of the leading concerns among clients that visit us at Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates.

Types of pigmentation:

Melasma:

Melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy, (when it affects women during pregnancy) is a common pigmentation disorder characterised by dark brown or grey patches primarily found on the face. Melasma is thought to be linked to a genetic predisposition and may also be triggered by fluctuating hormones during pregnancy, the use of hormonal medication (contraceptives or hormonal replacement treatments), as well as chronic sun exposure.

Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation:

Inflammation, either through damage from acne, or skin treatments such as lasers or radio frequency, can activate pigmentation (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). This pigmentation is caused by trauma to the skin and the skin responds by overproducing pigment in certain areas.

Sun-damage:

Sun and UV exposure will exacerbate and cause unwanted imperfections and blemishes on your skin, known as sunspots or age spots. This usually begins to show from the age of 40 onwards and is caused by years of accumulated sun exposure, which damages the pigment-producing cells and causes them to produce excessive pigment in certain areas.
