Pigmentation – Age Spots, Freckles and Sun Damage

Pigmentation refers to the colouring of the skin. Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called Melanin, which is a substance that melanocytes produce in the skin surface, which result in skin pigment. When these cells become unhealthy or are damaged, it can affect melanin production and result in pigmentation changes.

There are different types of pigmentation which have different causes and treatment approaches. Pigmentation concerns are linked to poor melanin functioning which can result in either hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or depigmentation (lighter spots) on the skin. Lighter spots are usually related to conditions such as vitiligo or albinism which require medical care.

Age spots and freckles are a common type of pigmentation and can present on the skin in many forms and affect people of all skin types. Freckles are caused by sun exposure and affects children and adults more commonly in adults with light skin. Any dark spot skin pigmentation that is caused from exposure to sun, photo damage and aging on the face and body, can be treated.


Melasma is a common type of pigmentation that causes brown or grey patches to appear that are darker than a person’s skin tone, typically on the face. Melasma commonly appears on the upper lip, the nose, cheeks and forehead and less commonly on arms and the neck area. Melasma is typically caused by hormonal changes, pregnancy, birth control medication and the good news is that it can be treated.

Facial redness, facial veins, broken capillaries, and rosacea are common conditions affecting men and woman. The good news is that facial redness, veins and broken capillaries can be treated with the correct procedures and after care products.

Broken capillaries, also referred to as “spider veins” are caused by enlarged blood vessels that occur beneath the skin’s surface, which result in red web shaped appearance. Spider veins can appear on the face, particularly around the nose, cheeks and chin, and on the body more commonly on the legs however they can appear anywhere.

Facial redness on the other hand is a less severe condition that varies from occasional reddening on the cheeks, known as blushing, to being red over the entire face for lengthily periods.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that is characterised as semi-permanent or in some cases permanent extreme facial redness. The condition causes the skin to become flushed and red due to enlarged veins.

While many people may have broken capillaries or facial redness, it does not necessarily mean they have Rosacea. Most facial redness conditions can be treated effectively with long lasting results.
