Face Colour

Face Colour

Even toned and clear facial skin is aesthetically pleasing and looks youthful. Aging, sun exposure, and skin conditions like melasma, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and broken capillaries can create unattractive spots, dark patches or a pink-red bloom on the skin. Our Vancouver laser, skin and medical clinic treats many of these facial discolouration conditions.

Broken Capillaries

Broken capillaries or telangiectasia, sometimes called “spider veins” appear as a pink to red bloom on the skin. Close-up, this bloom is a series of miniscule vein threads very near the skin’s surface. Spider veins can appear nearly anywhere on the body, but when they are on the face, they can be a highly visible and an unattractive source of embarrassment. There are safe non surgical treatments available for broken capillaries, including: IPL (intense pulsed light), and SkinCeuticals ® Redness Neutralizer. More about broken capillaries.


Melasma is a condition that appears as dark patches or blotched areas, usually on the cheek, forehead, nose and upper lip. Melasma, sometimes called the mask of pregnancy because it often first appears during pregnancy, has causes ranging from contraceptive use, hormone replacement medication, thyroid conditions, and genetic predisposition. The condition most frequently affects women with darker skin but can affect anyone, even men. Our Vancouver, Canada medical, and laser skin treatments centre offers several melasma treatments including: IPL, Fraxel laser, and skin lightening products. More about melasma.

Rosacea & Redness

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by a red blush or flushing of the skin. There is no known cause or cure. Symptoms vary from flushing that comes and goes, to persistent redness, pus filled pimples and visible blood vessels. Rosacea may also be accompanied by a burning sensation in the affected area, visible dryness and skin thickening. While Rosacea cannot be cured, it can be controlled. Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic can provide a private medical consultation, treatment with antibiotics, or non-prescription skin treatments such as intense pulsed light, SkinCeutical Redness Neutralizer, and SwissTEC Ant-Redness Balm.

Skin Blotchiness

Skin blotchiness is a term that describes mottled, sometimes rough and irritated skin with irregular alterations in pigment. Blotches may be very small pinkish-red to ruddy clusters of spots or small irregular patches. Blotchy skin can occur anywhere but frequently affects the facial skin, arms and neck. Skin blotchiness can be caused from prolonged exposure to sun, wind, dry weather, acne, rosacea, contact dermatitis and skin irritants. Most often, blotchiness is nothing more than embarrassing and annoying. Blotchy skin can be difficult to treat, and difficult to conceal with makeup because it often covers a large areas. Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic provides several treatments that may reduce skin blotchiness, including: chemical peels and laser skin treatments. More about skin blotchiness.

Sun/Age Spots

Do you have dark spots or brown spots on your skin? Frequently, dark skin spots (sometimes called “age spots”) are caused by overexposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. While skin protection and sun avoidance are the best prevention, even prolonged, lifelong casual exposure to sunlight can cause these spots. Our medical and laser clinic offers several treatments and products that can dramatically reduce spots, including: IPL photofacial treatments, Fraxel laser, and skin products. More about sun age spots.
