“Where do I start! Amazing is the first word that comes to mind. My skin glows, I look great and I feel fab, thanks to my new family, Laser Loft thank you”
M. Mbuli – female age 34 (Treated for dull complexion)
“I started with Laser Loft treatments less than a year ago. Had tried everything and my bathroom cupboard was like a department store. On starting these treatments and Dermetone products my fine rash disappeared and my skin is now bright and flawless. I did not have problem skin – but I would get the one annoying monthly pimple that would leave a permanent scar. I now get so many compliments oh how good my skin is and look younger. The first thing that crosses my mind now when I get a compliment is “I know – Right?” However I just reply by saying “Thank you.” It has put that spring in my step. I have recommended The Laser Loft to everyone.”

UNDERSTANDING YOUR UNEVEN COMPLEXION
Melanin (colour pigment in skin), is your body’s natural sunscreen and is also responsible for your skin tone/ shade. Discolouration occurs when your body produces excess/ irregular amounts of melanin in isolated areas of across your entire face.
What may contribute to your discolouration and uneven skin tone:
• Sun Exposure: Ultraviolet rays from the sun stimulate melanocytes to produce more melanin and thus giving you a darker/ tanned appearance. Hyperpigmentation occurs when the body produces too much/ varying amounts of melanin, causing dark spots and patches or exacerbating existing freckles and age spots.
• Hereditary Causes: Certain people have a genetic predisposition to pigmentation in specific regions (eg. around the mouth)
• Inflammation: Wounds caused by cuts, burns, or chemical exposure or by inflammation due to acne, eczema, or psoriasis – may also lead to hyperpigmentation. During the healing process the around the injury increases in metabolic activity, producing excess amounts of melanin, this in turn causes darkened scar tissue. This discoloration can last for months or years or may even be permanent. Early treatment allows for greater success, but there are steps you can take later on to try to fade the pigmentation.
• Hormonal Influences: Pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, menopause, adolescence and certain medications are the biggest culprits causing hormonal fluctuations. This type of pigmentation is referred to as melasma and manifests as brown or greyish-brown patches on the cheeks, nose, and forehead. Typically the pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations diminishes upon discontinuation of medication or after pregnancy.
• Illness: Hyper-pigmentation can also indicative of certain autoimmune and gastrointestinal diseases, as well as metabolic disorders and vitamin deficiencies.We have perfected several effective and safe means to minimize and remove pigmentation, dark spots, freckles and blemishes for flawless, even toned skin.
