Fresh, Clear, Radiant Skin

Pigmentation (a.k.a. age spots, sun damage, freckles, blotchy patches, and even melasma) can result from various factors, including prolonged exposure to the sun and hormonal changes – especially pregnancy, genetics, and environmental factors.

Found most commonly in the areas that receive the most sun exposure – typically the face, neck, hands, chest, and back – pigmentation and sun damage can start to appear in those as young as 20. While medically benign, pigmentation can leave your skin feeling uneven, blotchy, and aged.

Treating or reducing skin pigmentation is often a lot more complex than it looks. That’s because not all pigmentation is created equal. Some types of pigmentation will fade with simple topical treatments, while others require more focused and intensive attention. In fact, some popular procedures are contraindicated for people with melasma and can actually lead to worsening symptoms.

Trust only a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Dianne Burrows to reduce the appearance of sun damage and pigmentation, restoring your skin’s natural radiance and evenness.
