What Is Skin Discolouration?

Skin discolouration is the presence of diverse tints and tones in the skin. The colours are usually variations of pinks, whites, and browns, but can vary from person to person.

Skin discolouration is most apparent in facial skin, particularly on the nose and cheeks, but can also occur on any part of the body that is exposed to significant amounts of sun. Generally, mature aged persons are more likely to have skin discolouration as they have had more years obtaining sun exposure.

However, it is possible for younger persons to experience discolouration in skin also. Ozmedica’s Victorian Clinic in the inner-city suburb of Malvern has previously worked with skin discolouration clients of all ages and races.

What Causes Skin Discolouration?

To explain how skin discolouration occurs, is it important to understand that the most common cause of skin discolouration is a difference in melanin levels. Melanin is considered to be the substance that produces colour in skin. Melanin is also effective in protecting the skin from sun exposure.

When skin is exposed to high levels of ultraviolent rays from the sun, more melanin will be produced in an attempt to protect the skin. An overproduction of melanin in any particular area can result in skin discolouration.

Alternatively, due to genetic reasons, some children are born with skin discolouration. Additionally, research has shown cases of unexplainable skin discolouration that has developed over extensive periods of time.

The skin experts at Ozmedica Clinic have an array of experience working with clients that have varying degrees of skin discolouration. Although some can directly relate their discolouration to extreme sun exposure, others are less sure of the origin to their condition.

No matter the degree or extent of the skin discolouration, we can find a solution for you.
