Approximately 90% of premature skin ageing can be attributed to sunlight and at least 50% of the adult population will quote pigmentation irregularity as a major skin concern. Indeed individuals with Fitzpatrick Skin Types 3 to 6 may well rank pigmentation as a higher priority than lines and wrinkles.

Hyper or hypo pigmentation may also be generated by the effects of medication, hormonal imbalances, illness or a post inflammatory reaction, but whatever the underlying cause an understanding of the physiology of its manifestation is vital if you are to provide the right treatment approaches.

This course therefore not only explores in detail the skin’s relationship with the sun and the process of melanogenesis but also looks at all forms of pigmentation irregularity, how they develop and how to effectively, and safely, treat these stubborn skin conditions.
