Pigment markings

Pigment markings

We are exposed to sunlight and UV radiation every day. As we age, this can lead to pigmentation on the face, neck and hands. At Huid & Laserkliniek Delft we can effectively remove these types of markings with laser therapy.

Pigmentation usually occurs due to sun damage in the pigment cells of your skin. Most pigmentation spots are located on the upper skin layer and in places that are often exposed to the sun. Pigment markings are therefore often referred to as sunspots (lentigo solare).

Treatable pigmentation spots:
• Sunspots (lentigo solare)
• Age spots
• Cafe-au-lait stains
• Pregnancy mask (melasma)
• Freckles and minor benign moles
• Pigment markings in the neck (poikiloderma of civatte)
