Stop worrying and start acting! How to treat your skin discolouration today!

There are a lot of wonderful benefits to ageing; increased wisdom, more self confidence, higher pay grades, family status and so forth but with all of these wonderful pluses, there are also a handful of downsides. Wrinkle prevention is something we’ve all been taught since a young age. Nightly face cream application is something most girls have witnessed their mother doing by the ripe old age of 10, so yeah, you get it.

But what about when the problem isn’t wrinkles, but instead dark spots? We never expected the thrill of dark brown splotches sprinkled across our faces. Okay maybe thrill is the wrong word? Should we instead say, dismay? Or maybe just confusion? Either way, we just didn’t expect it.

Hyper pigmentation is something that is incredibly common and can come in a variety of different forms. Whether it’s sunspots or freckles, dark patches or uneven skin tone, it’s real, but skin discolouration treatment is always available.

Before we solve the problem however, it’s always a good idea to try to prevent it in the first place. If you’re prone to dark spots or your parents currently suffer from them, you definitely want to be sun smart. For dark spot prevention you should always use the recommended SPF amount, anytime you are spending an extended amount of time outdoors. Even on cloudy days! Put it this way, no one ever says, ‘I wish I hadn’t worn sunscreen’.  Right? Right.

If you’re not interested in prevention and just want a solution there are treatments out there for you. At Spectrum we provide a selection of equipment for skin discolouration treatment. All treatments are non-invasive procedures. By using intense pulsed light we’re able to specifically target the pigmented area and treat only that spot while leaving the surrounding skin untouched.

Clinics that use our equipment will always work with you to create a treatment plan that will typically be comprised of 5 separate sessions spaced out over 8-12 weeks apart.  If you’re worried about pain, it typically feels like a sunburn, but if you’re still concerned your therapist will recommend a topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment.
