Pigmentation and Age Spots - Vanish!

Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at our ‘Pigmentation and Age Spots’.
Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594.  Next month – Hair Removal.

Now that the sun seems to have deserted us (not that it made much of an appearance this year) it’s a great time to get rid of any blemishes, excess pigment, melasma and age spots. Depending on the individual this can be done with a chemical peel and/or light based treatment such as laser or intense pulsed light (IPL). Any discolouration from our natural skin tone can be unsightly and embarrassing, but we don’t need to put up with it.  Simple, non-invasive technology can quickly make them fade and eventually remove them completely.  If you are prone to changes in pigmentation the treatments do not prevent new areas forming, but they can be easily targeted before they become noticeable to others, thus putting your mind at ease.  Common areas for treatment include most areas that have been exposed to the sun i.e. face, arms, hands and torso.   The treatment normally takes around 5-10 minutes so it doesn’t involve any inconvenience to your daily schedule – why delay, enquire today.
