It goes without saying that skin protection is of the utmost importance as we continue to endure record-breaking heat here in the UK. Focusing on your skin health and avoiding sun damage throughout the year should be a priority for all of us, but even more so during what is set to be the hottest Summer in 40 years. Sun damage is a leading cause of premature ageing and various pigmentation concerns, including hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is generally more common than you might think, a skin concern that can affect all skin types and is particularly prevalent among people of colour. It occurs as a result of the overproduction of melanin within the skin, which can happen for one or a number of reasons, sun exposure being just one. Hyperpigmentation can also manifest in various different ways, from random patches of discolouration to age spots and melasma, of which our expert team are fully trained and experienced in treating all types.
Many patients crave a beautifully clear complexion, which is why they come to us here at Health & Aesthetic Clinic to help them achieve a more even skin tone that is perfectly blemish-free. When you book your consultation, we will take the time to thoroughly assess your skin and determine the root of your hyperpigmentation problems. Only then are we able to create a long-term bespoke treatment plan consisting of a combination treatments that are suited specifically to your wants and needs. As a doctor-led clinic, not only do we offer a number of highly advanced treatments, from photo rejuvenation to skin peels, but we can also offer various skincare products that are only available on prescription.
Above all, remember to protect and care for your skin throughout the year with a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above, applying regularly throughout the day when you expect to spend a lot of time outdoors. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you are safe in the shade, during an overcast day or behind a window either, as your skin can just as easily burn in these conditions. Lastly, don’t hesitate to visit our website to find out more about hyperpigmentation and the treatments we offer here at H&A Clinic.
