Pigmentation is hands down the most common skin concern clients present to us at the clinic for. Coming in in a variety of different conditions and concerns. This is them:...
- Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) is the brown spots left post blemish or wound and is more common in darker skin tones.
- Post Inflammatory Erythema is the red or purple marks left on the skin post breakout and is more common in lighter skins.
- Melasma is a hormonal pigment condition that is most often experienced by pregnant women.
- Sunspots are the brown spotty consequences of being naughty and not protecting your skin from the sun. Tsk-tsk.
We usually rely on in-clinic modalities such as laser and chemical peels to drastically improve the appearance of pigmentation. While these types of treatments are proven to help with areas of pigment, at-home care is crucial in maintaining improved results and deterring the problem spots from coming back.
When it comes to treating pigmentation with skincare, we at James Vivian endorse products to lighten the appearance of pigment that exists, inhibit more pigment from forming and protect the skin throughout the process with SPF.
Below you will find products containing ingredients which reduce the production of pigmentation in the skin whilst lightening its appearance. Read more
