Common Causes for Pigmentation

  • Sun Damage

    Sun Damage

    As important as Vitamin D is for our overall health, spending too much time in the sun can lead to skin pigmentation. This is because in order to protect our skin from the UV rays, we produce an extra layer of melanin, resulting in some areas producing more than others. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize sun damage such as applying proper SPF and covering up when the sun’s UV rays are strong.

  • Acne Scarring

    Acne Scarring

    Many people suffer from acne, either at a young age or even into their adulthood. Although acne eventually goes away, it can cause discolouration on your skin when new skin cells have grown over past blemishes. There are multiple ways to treat acne scarring such applying topical moisturizers and serums, undergoing a Chemical Peel or Micro-Needling.

  • Hormonal Changes

    Hormonal Changes

    Pigmentation can sometimes be directly correlated to your body's natural changing hormones. This could be caused by a change in medication, a genetic hormonal condition or the most common condition, pregnancy. Dark spots can be found anywhere on the body and can be treated with the same technologies used for acne scarring and sun damage.
