Pigmentation | The Skin Clinic

I need help with pigmentation

Skin problems related to hyper-pigmentation are generally the end result of the defence system of our skin, caused from UVR and other forms of topical and internal inflammation. It is a reactive response of damage being inflicted on the skin cells.


What causes pigmentation

Listed below are some types of pigmentation:

Freckles – little brown spots due to high sun exposure and unprotected sun exposure.

Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation – pigment that comes up post inflammation or injury to the skin. This can be caused from acne, skin abrasions, burns, excess heat and wrong treatment choices.

Melasma or Chlorasma (Mask of Pregnancy) – this is triggered by hormones, internal inflammation and stress. This is a very common condition amongst pregnancy or those on medication that affects hormones (oral contraceptive pill and progesterone based medications).

Liver Spots – spots of dark pigment with rounded or uneven edges. This is due to excess sun exposure and is very common in people over the age of 50.

Pigmentation Treatments We Can Provide

Triggers & Tips

  1. Avoid highly inflammatory foods such as sugar, wheat, diary and excess alcohol.
  2. Excess unprotected sun exposure. Always wear sunscreen even it is cloudy or raining.
  3. Over-exfoliating with AHAs and BHAs – This could make your pigmentation worse if these ingredients have been over used.
  4. Make sure you are correctly using your Vitamin C in the morning and your Vitamin A of a night time.

I highly recommend the Tixel treatment, the results are remarkable and speak for themselves. Thanks to the treatment, I now have the confidence and comfort to go without wearing foundation, as my skin has visibly improved and become clearer. I have even received positive feedback from others after undergoing the Tixel treatment, and I almost wish I didn’t have to share my secret! Overall, the results are amazing, and I can't praise Renee and the girls enough for their positive and friendly experience during the treatment.

5 stars from me. Carmela was absolutely amazing! I had the spa enzyme facial and it was incredibly relaxing. My skin feels so beautiful now and she also had some great tips for my skin. Can’t wait to come back again. I’ve also had my eyebrows shaped and tinted at the skin clinic previously and I’ve never found somewhere else that does as good job as these girls do! Thanks ladies 😊
