What is Pigmentation?

A common, usually harmless condition which affects the face, typically patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. This occurs when the melanocyte cells produce too much pigment. 

Common types of pigmentation

  • Freckles or Ephelides are the most common type of pigmentation. 
  • Solar lentigines are also referred to as liver spots or sun spots. 
  • Melasma or Chloasma is often related to hormonal changes and may develop during pregnancy.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is usually the result of injury or inflammation of the skin.

What machine do you treat it with?

At Rejuvenate Horsham Clinic, we use the 3 JUVE IPL machine manufactured by a leading UK laser company Lynton Lasers.

IPL machines are recognised in the Aesthetic industry as leaders in treating facial skin conditions because IPL machines can use different wavelengths to target various skin lesions. 

The 3 JUVE has 2 technologies. 

The Remodel uses Radiofrequency to stimulate fibroblast cells to produce new collagen and elastin, which improves skin laxity resulting in a tighter, firmer appearance.

The Rebright: uses an IPL handpiece to treat multiple skin conditions, such as Rosacea, Acne, Pigmentation.
