Skin Discoloration is a common concern for many patients. The loss of natural healthy skin tone can be caused by many different factors, including extensive sun exposure, inflammation, hormones, and medical skin conditions. Each of these factors create a different type of coloration in the skin, whether it is brown, tan, grey, pink, purple, or red. When left untreated, with time the coloration can become more noticeable and can make individuals feel self-conscious.

- Telangiectasia (fine red blood vessels)

How do skin discoloration treatments work?
Treatments depend on the type of coloration concern you have. Ultimately, treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of the discoloration. With repeat treatments, coloration is slowly reduced by slowing down our body’s mechanisms that create the uneven skin tone. Each treatment targets these mechanisms differently. Our expert certified medical laser technicians are trained to determine which treatment is best suited to your skin tone concerns and provide you with the best outcome. *Individual results and patient experience may vary
How many treatments will I need?
Treatment session are variable based on the type of and severity of the discoloration. Please note that every person and coloration is different and further guidance will be provided in your consultation with our certified medical laser technician.
