A unique treatment system for the management of melasma, discolouration and skin pigmentary issues.What is the Pigmentation Clinic?
The Pigmentation Clinic Is a specialised method of treating Melasma and Stubborn pigmentary disorders. This system was formulated and developed by Aesthetic Holistic Practitioner Nabila Carrim. "At the beginning of my practice over 20 years ago, I saw the failures with other skin care systems and brands. We generally test potential brands before offering them at our practice. we have had experience by purchasing and testing several major brands some of which are quite popular with minimal results. From the onset, we haven't been convinced with these methods of treatments and therefore chose not to stock them. We are laser specialists and have the ability to treat these pigmentary disorders with the vast array of lasers that we have. However, It is sometimes inconvenient for the patient as they require multiple visits and can also be time-consuming for the patient. Furthermore, it also is difficult for those who live far off to have treatment. We also found that considering that I perform all the treatments myself I noticed that it was difficult to fit everyone in when necessary.
My interest grew and I kept investigating solutions. Being a melasma patient myself I started to look deeper at how I could help myself without laser as i couldn't possibly treat myself!
I then contacted several specialists internationally and after 10 years of trials and testing and collaboration The Pigmentation Clinic system was developed.
Why is it different?
The programme works! It works on melasma, including Post Inflammatory Pigmentation which is usually pigment that has occurred from other forms of therapies or injuries. The system even targets uneven skin colour and discolouration due to the high levels of actives that are introduced to each patient based on their skin type and tolerance and are made per the individuals' requirements. We also incorporate Naturopathic medicine as well as supplements with providing a lasting result with very minimal rebounding if any at all. Rebounding is a condition whereby the melasma and pigment come back worse, and sometimes with a vengeance. This is usually seen with traditional forms of therapies such as hydroquinone usage.
Is this programme available for other clinics to purchase?
No, as it is the intellectual property of Zen Medi Spa and Nabila Carrim.

How much is the consultation?
R550 paid in advance.
Yes certainly! When one has an uneven skin color one has a higher chance of developing hyperpigmentation due to the unstable nature of the skin. Using the pigmentation clinic products will assist in evening out the skin color and reducing the chances of developing hyperpigmentation in the future.
