“I used to go to a place in Birmingham to treat my brown spots. I had 10 IPL treatments, and still had pigmentation. I came to FACE, and in 2 of their treatments, my brown spots were gone. I will never go elsewhere again.” – Itzi S.
Are there different depths of pigment?
Yes. Brown spots and sun damage can be very superficial in the skin. Melasma can be more epidermal, or it can be more dermal (lower layers in the skin). The deeper the melasma, the harder it is to treat.
What’s the difference between brown spots and melasma?
Brown spots look just as it sounds. They look like little spots of pigment, or freckles on the face. Some spots may be more pronounced, or larger in size, depending on the amount of sun damage on the skin. Lighter skins tend to get more sun damage as their skin doesnʼt have a natural protection that darker skin types have.
Will my pigment come back?
The main way your pigment can darken is from exposure to the sun or aging. That is why we teach you how to protect your skin as best as possible while still encouraging you to live a normal lifestyle.
Can these treatments work on all ethnicities?
Not all of these therapies are appropriate for darker skin tones. We recommend you come in for a consultation so we can suit the treatment towards your needs.
Where did my pigment come from?
Pigmentation can come from a variety of sources. Externally, the main culprit is sun damage and aging. Scarring can also influence pigment. Internally, hormonal fluctuations, getting on and off birth control, pregnancy, genetics (freckles), and certain medications, can create pigmentation, including melasma.
What can I do to maintain my results?
We recommend the use of a full spectrum sunscreen of 30spf or more daily to start. Then, depending on the needs of the individual, time of year, and other factors, we will advise on adjunctive topical products to enhance and maintain results.
