Pigmentation

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS

PIGMENTATION

Our skin colour is determined by the presence of the melanin pigment. There are multiple causes to excess or irregular skin pigmentation such as ultraviolet rays in sunlight, acne or injury to the skin and hormonal changes. The production of melanin is stimulated and can lead to hyperpigmentation, resulting in freckles, age spots and uneven skin colour.

Luckily, most types of pigmentations can be treated. At The Lime Tree Clinic, we have a wide range of proven effective treatments and specially formulated products that can even out skin tone and restore the skin’s natural colour.
