Common Skin Discolouration Conditions & Treatments

Calgary Vein & Laser has experience treating various skin discolouration issues such as rosacea and sun spots. Keep reading to learn more about these conditions and available treatment options.


Age Spots / Melasma

Many people develop age spots – also referred to as sun spots or liver spots – as they get older. Typically seen on the face, neck, arms and hands, they are benign and thought to be caused by sun exposure. These spots can increase in size and darken over time. While harmless, many patients choose to treat them for cosmetic reasons.


Rosacea / Red Discolourations

This common skin condition features redness and swelling in the face and other areas of your body, including:


  • Ears
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Scalp
  • Back


Early symptoms include easily flushing or blushing, which may lead to consistent redness, pimples and the appearance of threadlike blood vessels in the centre of your face and then over your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. In general, men typically have more severe cases.


Various treatment options for skin discolouration include:


  • Topical creams / medications
  • Oral medications
  • Bleaching agents
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser facial peels
  • Laser removal


We have many facial peels and skin rejuvenation treatments available for age spots, rosacea and melasma, such as DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System, IPL Photorejuvenation and laser removal.
