Pigmentation

Pigmentation affects people with all skin types but is one of the most common reasons that those with skin of colour see a dermatologist. Brown spots and splotches may occur on any part of the skin, but with the right treatment for your skin, these spots could soon be a thing of the past. 

Chroma Dermatology are the experts in the diagnosis and treatment of pigment problems.

Specialised consulting services exist for those with vitiligo, melasma and other pigment problems (see below). 

The harsh Australian sun contributes to the significant number of people who suffer with dark spots (pigmentation). Freckles, melasma, inherited conditions and other age-related spots can all cause pigmentation. The exact treatment regimen depends on the underlying cause. So, making the right diagnosis is the first step toward successfully treating and clearing the pigmentation.
