Freckling or lentigenes on the hands and face are generally the result of sun damage or the development of flat basal cell papillomas (ageing warts!). These respond well to a number of laser type treatments and at Shropshire Skin Clinic we use either intense pulsed light photorejuvenation or the Diolite laser.

Melasma or Chloasma is a condition causing facial pigmentation in women. Oestrogens in the contraceptive pill or the rise in oestrogens during pregnancy may cause or worsen the condition. For this reason the condition is also called the 'pregnancy mask'. Exposure to sunlight will also exacerbate the condition. Unfortunately the pigmentation may not improve even if the contraceptive pill and sunlight are avoided.

At Shropshire Skin Clinic melasma is often treated very effectively with a combination of microdermabrasion, skin peels and pigment suppressing creams from the AgeraRx product range.

There are many causes of irregular or excessive skin pigmentation. Assessment and diagnosis by a skin specialist will allow the right treatment choice to be made.
