Skin Pigmentation in Sydney NSW

Enjoy a smoother, healthier complexion

The term 'pigmentation' refers to your skin colouring, which is caused by a pigment known as melanin. This is produced by cells within the flesh, but when they become unhealthy, the skin's tone can change. Results may be seen across the whole body or just in specific areas.

Home Cosmetic Procedures Skin Skin pigmentation

Skin pigmentation can manifest in a number of forms, such as freckles, raised lesions, post inflammatory pigmentation, and cholasma.

Dr. Adam Najem’s Skin pigmentation treatments can help you enjoy a smoother, healthier complexion, using bespoke techniques ideal for your personal skin type and pigmentation.

What is Skin Pigmentation Treatment?

Dr. Adam Najem offers a number of skin pigmentation treatments to suit different types. Pigmentation can be either epidermal (or superficial), dermal (or deep), or a combination of both.

Your treatment will be chosen specifically to minimise unwanted pigmentation and improve the target regions’ appearance. Your risk tolerance and own preferences will affect the type of treatment offered too.

What Does Skin Pigmentation Treatment Involve?

Skin pigmentation treatment can be performed on any area of the body or face, such as the back, neck, décolletage, the backs of your hands, and more.

Raised Lesions

If you have developed raised lesions of a brown colour, an ablative laser will be utilised to remove them.

Some of the most common lesions are related to old age (Seborrheoic Keratoses) and moles. However, if there is any sign of their being related to skin cancer or melanoma, they will need to be examined thoroughly. In such cases, a sample will be subject to histology.

Freckles and Sun Damage

Any skin pigmentation issues relating to brown sun damage, freckles, and solar lentigos (caused by too much exposure to UV rays) should be treated with pigment laser technique.

These treatments stimulate collagen production to enhance the appearance of aged skin and sun damage.

Melasma and Chloasma

Melasma is a condition causing discolouration of the skin, with patchy areas typically appearing on the cheeks, forehead, chin, and / or upper lips. This is most prevalent in women aged between 20 and 50 (reproductive years).

Chloasma is a type of melasma occurring in pregnancy, specifically affecting women with darker or olive skin (such as those of Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern origin). The process of treatment involves agents able to lighten the skin, including kojic acid, vitamin C, tretinoin / hydroquin one, and others.

Exfoliation will be performed with microder mabrasion and peels, while skin needling using lightening products will be incorporated too. Sonophoresis / iotop horesis (ultrasound-based treatment) with skin lightening agents are part of the treatment too, as are fractional lasers and BBL (BroadBand Light).

PIH (Post Inflammatory Pigmentation)

Post inflammatory pigmentation tends to occur following any type of skin inflammation in people with a predisposition to it. Anyone with skin of a darker tone (such as Fitzpatrick 3 and higher) tends to be more prone to PIH.

Inflammation may arise from such activities as peels, waxing, lasers, burns, and IPL scratches. Dr. Adam Najem is able to treat PIH using a program of processes similar to those ideal for melasma treatment.

For Skin with a Healthy Glow

Dr. Adam Najem’s skin pigmentation treatment can lead to smoother, tighter skin for a more youthful appearance. This creates a rejuvenating look without needing any long downtime or anaesthesia. Discomfort is typically minimal.

The treatment brings no negative side-effects, and can be applied to small areas only.
