Pigmentation Brown Marks
Brown patches on the face or body can suddenly appear with age, pregnancy or after sun exposure.
Treatments and products for lightening brown patches (pigmentation) aim to control the skins pigment cells whilst renewing the skin.
Chemical peels combined with use of specially formulated skincare can help to manage and even out the skin colour.
Now there are also some specific new Q Switch laser treatments that can gently break up the pigments giving a longer lasting clearing effect.
Some types of pigment are easier to treat than others, for example, hormonal pregnancy patches are much more difficult to clear than freckled sun damage. Factors that affect how your skin is treated depend on the type of pigment you have, and your skin type.
