Pigmentation: All you need to know and MORE....

Have you looked in the mirror and wondered... WHAT PIGMENTATION MEANS?

Pigmentation means darkening of the skin.
Your skin's pigmentation affects the colour of your skin. Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin.

Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production.

Pigmentation can also occur in pregnancy on your forehead, cheeks, and neck area. This is known as the mask of pregnancy and caused by your body making extra melanin. Melanin is the tanning hormone that protects your skin against ultraviolet light.

Nimue products are used the first step of prevention. Our therapist will prescribe you products from our prevention range.

Nimue is perfect as it offers protection during the day and night. It protects you during the day as it helps inhibit pigmentation. However, during the night it will break the pigmentation down. By adding IPL to this treatment plan it will speed up the process of breaking down the pigmentation. This aids in getting clearer skin faster.

Once you have pigmentation. You will always have pigmentation until it is treated. Our therapist will focus on prevention of pigmentation returning. But, if this is hormonal pigmentation this can disappear after your baby is born but give it at least 12 months.

Your beauty therapist should keep an eye on this. If this has not disappeared by 12 months then further treatment would be required.
