The Skin Diaries Part 3: Pigmentation

Welcome to Part 3 of our new Skin Diaries Series.

We’re exploring unique skin stories with our new blog series.

The nuances of each patient’s skin are as personal and unique as the page of a diary. The different factors that affect how your skin ages, changes, and transforms are as singular as a snowflake. That’s why we’ve created the Skin Diaries series –– to use specific cases to demonstrate how a personalized treatment plan can transform your skin. Step inside some of our patient’s personal stories to see how treatments or procedures addressed their unique needs to rejuvenate their appearance in a way that met their goals. 

Please note that any patients mentioned or shown in the skin series kindly allowed us to use and share their images. The stories we’ll share in our skin diaries series are from happy patients who felt great about sharing their results with our client community, for learning opportunities like this.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

The case

This woman came to us with concerns about hyper-pigmentation, discolouration, and uneven skin texture on her face and neck. We frequently hear patients talk about a combination of concerns like this; sometimes one treatment can be effective for multiple concerns. Freckles, sunspots, discolouration, pigmentation, and wrinkles are all common signs of aging.

The cause of the concern

Many of us notice sunspots, discolouration and pigmentation appear on our skin with age. Dark spots can make your complexion look more dull or tired, and may make your skin texture look uneven. As we get older, the signs of sun and environmental damage become more evident and can show up in a variety of ways on our face, hands, neck, and body.

The personalized treatment plan

For this patient, we used a combination of Forever Young BBL treatments and medical-grade skincare to even skin tone and texture and brighten her complexion. Laser treatments can be incredibly effective for pigmentation or discolouration, and innovative technology lets us utilize multiple wavelengths of light to target varying degrees of damage and visible pigmentation.

Here’s why it worked 

Forever Young BBL treatments trigger cell turnover and collagen formation, providing a catalyst for skin healing and regeneration. Innovative light therapy can be effective in getting to the root of discolouration and delaying visible signs of aging in your skin. 

Medical grade skincare plans are best when they’re recommended based on your specific needs; our skincare specialists know what products work in tandem and how to build an effective plan that’s potent and effective with lasting results. 

We often recommend a skincare regimen in combination with procedures or treatments because it’s a great way to prevent future damage and signs of aging while directly treating your current concerns.

If you’re curious about our skincare lines, our online skincare store is a great place to access medical-grade skincare right from home.
