Sun spots, age spots, freckles and Keratoses (small hard bumps appearing on the skin) – pigmentation problems are a result of an overproduction of melanin, the dark pigment in the skin that is produced by melanocytes (cells).
Difficult to hide, hyperpigmentation can be treated correctly at our Ottawa medical aesthetics clinic with a host of cosmetic procedures that are effective and do not require surgical intervention.
Because ultraviolet exposure can cause and worsen hyperpigmentation, it is highly recommended that the skin is protected from the sun’s rays.
It can be worrisome to see your skin looking dull, feeling dry, or to see dark-coloured spots begin to appear. The sun’s rays are believed to be responsible for up to 90 percent of these problems, although hereditary also plays a role. UV rays wreak havoc on your skin, and over time can leave you looking far older than you feel. Our treatments at Dermaworks are customized, as you have unique issues to resolve.

Facial skin is always continuously exposed to the elements. In Ottawa, that includes harsh winds, bitter cold and hot sun. To avoid developing sun spots, age spots, and other hyperpigmentation problems, it is advised that you make wearing sunscreen a habit, whether you are walking, boating, skiing, hiking, biking, or any other outdoor activity. Keeping your skin hydrated and protected is part of maintaining healthy, evenly-toned skin. If the damage is already showing, Dr. Vassiliou has treatments to help you restore an even skin tone that appears healthy, fresh and glowing.
