A person's degree of skin pigmentation determines, to some extent, the various dermatological diseases to which a person may be susceptible. Lighter-skinned people are more sensitive to sun exposure and damage. Excessive sun exposure is a risk factor even for darker-skinned people.

Our office treats discromia and mottled skin by using several techniques. They are the Alexandrite laser, Intense Pulsed Light, Photorejuvenation, Microdermabrasion, and Chemical Peel. The type of treatment to utilize will be determined by the doctor after your initial consultation. Multiple procedures of the treatment will be needed to optimize the results.
