Pigmentation may be just freckles (solar lentigos) – induced by sun-exposure and a combination of genetics.

These are easily removed with a single session of laser (Q switch-linked Nd Yag).

Pigmentation may also present as large dark patches on the skin – this is referred to as melasma or chloasma.  This is often due to a combination of genetics (skin type) in combination with sun exposure and hormones.  This is more challenging to treat. 

The practice offers a wide variety of topical medicated creams, oral medications (tablets) and laser treatments which are used to treat these areas.  Often these are patient specific and require maintenance of treatment for optimal results.
