Discolouration in patches of your skin could be dyschromia. But fear not, several Lasermed treatments can help erase this hypo- or hyperpigmentation of the skin. The latter two conditions may be caused by multiple factors, including pregnancy, hormonal changes or a fungal infection.
In short, Dyschromia is a condition marked by a colour alteration on the skin, hair or nails. Hypo- and hyper-pigmentation describe light or dark patches on the skin.
We can treat Dyschromia effectively with either IPL or TCA peels, or a combination of both. In conjunction with these treatment options, it’s a good idea to use a skin brightening cream for after-care. Recommended products are Skin Tech Blending cream, NeoStrata Enlighten Pigment Controller and Skin Ceuticals Pigment Corrector. All available at Lasermed.
For prevention and daily maintenance of Dyschromia after-care, it’s imperative to use proper sun protection. We recommend using a sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays with no chemical filters. The Heliocare Mineral range is excellent.
