Finding solutions for skin surface damage that won’t clear naturally

Posted on 13 Jul, 2011

Almost everyone is born with certain distinguishing features or marks on their skin, such as birthmarks and freckles. However, there are some slight imperfections that we pick up as we get older, in a variety of different ways.

For dark skin, pigmented scars may appear after the epidermis has been damaged in some way. This often occurs when you are a child, when you pick up insect bites, cuts, scars, scratches and grazes. These, along with skin problems like acne or chicken pox, can cause discoloured marks or patches of uneven pigmentation on the surface of the skin.

Unfortunately, these marks and patches do not often clear naturally, and they can worsen as you get older or expose your skin to too much sun. This means that you may want to consider other options if you want to get rid of them.

There is now a safe, non-surgical solution for clearing dark skin of these uneven marks, lesions and patches – laser treatment. There are two options available – Advanced Intense Pulsed Light treatment and Microdermabrasion, Laser Therapy and Ultrasound treatment. A specialist laser treatment clinic will also be able to give you advice on the right skin care products to use.

Through a combination of these methods, the natural beauty of dark skin can be restored along with smooth, even skin tone.
