Skin Pigmentation

Skin pigmentation is incredibly common here in New Zealand thanks to our strong sun, and can come in the form of small dark spots, patches, freckles and larger age spots.

Some pigmentation types can also be caused by hormones. These dark spots and patches can build up over the years and can be frustrating, especially if we feel self-conscious, yet don’t want to smother our skin in heavy makeup.

What causes pigmentation?

Dark spots can often start appearing in our twenties as the body produces melanin to protect the skin, and these can darken and multiply over the years. While sunscreen is a great way to help protect against sun damage, other factors such as heat from the sun and blue-light from your phone or laptop can also contribute to pigmentation.

How can I minimise my signs of pigmentation?

A number of advanced in-clinic treatments are now easily accessible to reduce pigmentation in the skin, the most popular being IPL Therapy, Dermapen Microneedling sessions and O Cosmedics Facial Peels. In addition to this, a number of active serums can help brighten pigmentation and prevent excess pigment from forming, so these are great to use in combination with your treatments.

First time at Nicola Quinn and I enjoyed every moment! The friendly lady on reception set a lovely tone and the atmosphere was very calming. Grace recommended a facial to suit my needs and I really appreciated her flexibility in this. She was professional, friendly and knowledgable throughout. Thank you so much. Would definitely recommend!
