There are a wide range of skin pigmentation disorders that can affect the natural beauty of your appearance and many practitioners steer away from some of the more complex problems that occur in darker skin tones.

For those that are a little more complicated, a strategic course of products and procedures may be required.
At Skin Med Spa we have the expertise to treat excess pigmentation for the wide range of skin types, from light to dark and everything in between. We consider your present condition, prior treatments and lifestyle before creating an individually-defined approach to achieving the vibrant skin complexion you desire.
Many people have lived with pigmentation disorders for many years, sometimes most of their lives. If you are one of those people then chances are you already familiar with the type of condition you are suffering from. However, for those who are not certain what type of pigmentation disorder you have, we’ve provided some information about the basic types of conditions. And, we are confident that we can help you.
Albinism is a rare, often inherited, disorder caused by a defect in the body’s ability to produce melanin. It’s recognized by very fair skin, white hair and pink eyes in extreme cases. But there are varying degrees of albinism and some manifest in patches of light skin, or light pigmentation spots than may benefit from a pigmentation treatment.
Melasma is a very common condition characterized by darker pigmentation spots, generally on the cheeks, nose bridge, forehead, upper lip and chin. It can manifest on other parts of the body that get a lot of direct sun, such as the forearms. Melasma has a connection to hormones and occurs about 90 percent of the time in women. The good news is that we can help correct this discoloration with a pigmentation removal plan and treatment.
Hyperpigmentation is a similar condition in which patches of skin appear darker than your normal overall skin tone. It can be attributed to excess melanin and is generally harmless. Treatments can be as simple as professional applications of skin lightening products to slow melanin production in the affected areas.
Scars, burns, blisters and surgeries damage the skin and the body may not be able to restore melanin to the injured areas. This can result in lighter areas that require pigmentation treatment to the damaged skin.
Vitiligo is a disorder characterized by white patches appearing on different parts of the body. It commonly affects the face, wrists and hands and it happens when the cells that create pigmentation in the skin are damaged or destroyed. We offer a pigmentation treatment to help restore your complexion to its natural appearance.
