Pigmentation and Spots

As we age, the daily impact of the sun, pollution and stress, in addition to the skin’s natural aging process, can impact the way our skin looks and feels. For many, this results in undesirable outcomes such as age spots, sun spots, Melasma, UV damage and other hyperpigmentation concerns.

Hyperpigmentation affects people of all skin types and colours. When the skin produces more melanin (the pigment that gives skin its color), this can create darker spots or patches resulting in hyperpigmentation.

At Lucere, we understand the importance of feeling confident in your own skin. As the leading cosmetic, dermatology, and laser clinic in Edmonton, we are able to offer more than 25 different lasers and skin devices. This means we are able to offer the most effective treatment that is a best fit for your skin.
