|Hypopigmentation of the skin occurs when the pigment making cells (melanocytes) are unable to make pigment. This can be as a result of sun damage, vitiligo or marked inflammation or injury to the skin (PIPA).
Hypopigmentation due to sun damage and PIPA can be improved by the Profractional laser and Laser Skin Peels. Alternatively, the BBL could be used to remove the browns so that the white blends in better.
Protect the hypopigmented areas from the sun. These areas are more vulnerable and more likely to burn.
