Skin discolouration (dyschromia) can be the result of birth marks, trauma, sun damage, age or a combination of these factors.
Red dyschromia is the result of superficial blood vessels, which can be quickly and easily reduced or eliminated with the KTP and IPL lasers. They target the red colour of blood to heat and cauterize the blood vessels from the inside, leaving surrounding tissues undamaged. These same lasers can also target the brown colour in flat or raised moles (like solar lentigo or seborrheic keratosis), resulting in quick and effective removal.
Medical grade facials and chemical peels can be used to lighten sensitive skin types with no downtime. Physician-recommended skincare is also an option to treat discoloration, or to maintain results after treatment.
A medical assessment is always part of your visit to The De Pieri Clinic, so if a skin discolouration is suspected to be cancerous, you can receive MSP-covered treatment for biopsy, excision or prompt referral to a plastic surgeon.
