Learn What Causes Skin Pigmentation & How You Can Remove Unwanted Sun & Age Spots

What causes skin pigmentation & discoloration in the skin?

Skin pigmentation and discoloration can be caused by numerous amount of variables. Your skin tone is the result of a complex process during which cells inside the epidermis layer of skin are called melanocytes and they produce melanin. Inside these epidermis skin cells, are organelles called melanosomes, and the function of these cells plays a large role in the melanins production in your skin. 

Skin pigmentations usually occur when there’s a disbalance of melanin in your skin due to genetics, age, sun exposure, or skin disorders.

What are the types of skin pigmentations?

There are many types of skin pigmentations. These target areas include but are not limited to:

  • Pigmented birthmarks
  • Vascular birthmarks
  • Skin pigmentation disorders
  • Sunspots
  • Sun damage
  • Age Spots
  • Acne
  • Discolored skin
  • Scars
  • Dark Spots
  • Freckles

IPL spot treatments help remove sun spots and age spots

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) penetrates down to the second layer of your skin called the dermis without harming the epidermis that’s on the top layer of skin, which causes less damage to your skin. Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. IPL treatments help with the following areas above as well as these conditions:

  • Stretch marks
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Redness from rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Unwanted hair

PRX bio facials lighten skin and spots

When applied, PRX bio facials penetrate deep into your face’s skin and works on the epidermal layer down to the dermis layer. It stimulates the dermis layer to regenerate and renew skin cells without causing any damage to the top layer of skin. Making your skin brighter and radiant.

The PRX facial treatments are relatively pain-free and are non-invasive and only take about 15 minutes to see results. Results are visible immediately but to see the best results we recommend 4 treatments.
