Pigment spots

Almost everyone suffers from pigment spots over the years. This usually increases as we get older. Pigment spots often give an older appearance, which is why they are also referred to as age spots. They are caused by cells in the skin producing extra melanin. Pigment disturbances can arise when the skin is insufficiently protected against sunlight. Medication, wounds or hormone fluctuations can also be the underlying cause. We can help you get rid of your pigment spots with our skin therapeutic treatments. Do you want skin with an even, younger appearance?

At Inskin Institute we can treat pigment spots relatively easily and safely. There are several treatments available to treat pigmentation spots. Which treatment is most suitable for you depends on various factors, including the type of pigment, your skin type and your lifestyle. Our skin therapists map out which type of pigment you have. Techniques that we use to treat pigment are IPL treatments, Cosmelan, medical peels or microneedling. During a no-obligation consultation, we draw up a personal treatment plan.

  • Cosmelan

    With the Cosmelan treatment we can safely remove the excessive pigment in the skin. Also the pigment that is located in the deeper skin layers due to hormonal fluctuations. We'll be honest, the Cosmelan cure is the most effective treatment to safely remove excessive pigment. In addition to removing the pigment, it also inhibits the production of new pigment. The Cosmelan products contain a unique combination of active ingredients that deliver good, proven results. The Cosmelan approach consists of a professional treatment with a depigmenting mask. This is followed by a home treatment that continues the effect of the treatment and inhibits the production of new pigment. The Cosmelan mask has an immediate effect on it

  • IPL treatment

    IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) an effective way to treat superficial pigment spots. At Inskin Institute we work with the Lumecca of the InMode system. Due to the built-in cooling and correct light distribution, the Lumecca is suitable for most skin types. Each pulse gives a flash of light with a wide spectrum of wavelengths. The pigment absorbs the energy of the flash of light, causing the pigment granules to heat up and solidify. The body then cleans up the pigment cells itself. The treatment gives a short heat sensation, but this disappears immediately afterwards. It can feel like a rubber band being snapped against your skin. An additional advantage of this treatment is that IPL also tightens the skin. The energy released stimulates collagen production in the skin. The laser contains a built-in cooling system, which makes the treatment well tolerated.

    At Inskin Instiute we work with the InMode system, this equipment is CE and FDA certified and therefore safe.

  • Chemical Peel

    At Inskin Institute we work with medical peels from the Dermaceutics brand. The peels are based on Glycolic acid, Salicylic acid, Lactic acid, Mandelic acid or Trichloroacetic acid (TCA). There is a suitable peeling for every type of skin. Chemical peels are liquids that consist of a formulation of natural acids. With these acids we can treat pigment spots in a controlled and safe way. Depending on the depth of the pigment and your skin type, we choose a certain type of peeling. We determine this together based on your individual wishes.

  • Microneedling

    Microneedling is a scientifically recognized and safe technique. Superfine needles made of surgical steel make hundreds of micro-channels in the skin without damaging it. Active ingredients can penetrate deep into the skin through the micro-channels. During the treatment we use high-quality boosters and medical peels from the Dermeceutic brand. These products contain active ingredients that penetrate the skin up to 200 times better. This allows us to effectively reduce disturbing pigment spots. An additional advantage is that the skin will also produce more collagen and elastin as a result of the treatment. With 4 to 6 treatments you can achieve an increase of 400 percent and a thickening of the skin of up to 140 percent!

Home products

The treatment plan is always twofold. In addition to the treatments we perform, we advise you to get started at home with the products we recommend (at least 2 weeks prior to a treatment). We work with the cosmeceuticals from Dermaceutic and/or Rhenophase. Cosmeceuticals contain active ingredients that have been scientifically researched and proven to be effective. These products may only be recommended by doctors and skin therapists.

The products contain ingredients that have an exfoliating effect and reduce the cornification of the skin, making the skin more permeable and allowing the active ingredients to do their job optimally. The skin will also recover faster after the treatment and you can keep the result of the treatment for longer.

What effect can you expect?

The Cosmelan cure is an intensive cure and the most effective way to remove pigment spots and with this cure you can even tackle the pigment that is located in deeper layers of the skin. IPL treatments will make superficial pigment spots less visible or even make them disappear completely. This gives your skin a smooth and fresh appearance. In addition, collagen production in the skin will increase, causing skin tightening.

The peeling can also reduce superficial pigment and provides a finer skin structure. Shrink pores and reduce wrinkles. This ensures a fresher skin color and a smooth and even skin.

Microneedling in combination with active ingredients makes pigment spots less visible, increases collagen production in the skin and improves the overall skin condition.

Pigment spots can come back in the sun. How you deal with the sun in the future therefore determines how well you can maintain the treatment results. By using a cream with SPF 50 daily, you can suppress the formation of new pigment. Prevention is easier than cure! At Inskin Institute we can always give you advice without obligation on how you can best maintain the result.
