Hyperpigmentation Treatment

Discover a brighter and more even skin tone

All about hyperpigmentation treatment

Problems with pigmentation are very common and can be caused by sun damage, hormonal factors and even injury to the skin. There are many types of hyperpigmentation and our highly-experienced team has a wealth of expertise in treating all forms including melasma, age spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (skin discolouration often found in acne scarring).

The first important step is an in-depth consultation to assess your skin and determine the cause of hyperpigmentation. This will help us work out the best course of action for you and develop a treatment plan. We take a longer-term approach to treat this condition (rather than a quick fix).  Many of our clients have benefited from clearer, younger-looking skin that helps them feel great.*

Frequently Asked Questions

by our clinic in South East London
    • What is hyperpigmentation?

      Hyperpigmentation is caused when the skin produces too much melanin (the skin’s pigment). This can happen for several reasons including too much exposure to the sun, hormonal changes such as pregnancy and the menopause and trauma to the skin (such as acne).

      There are many forms of hyperpigmentation. The most common include hyperpigmentation across the skin, age spots, melasma (also known as chloasma) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which is often seen in people who previously had acne.

    • What is prescribed skincare?

      As a doctor-led clinic, we are able to prescribe skincare products and ranges that are only available on prescription. This may be because they have more active ingredients than off-the-shelf skincare and/or need to be used following the correct medical advice. Prescribed skincare can be particularly useful when targeting skin conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation.

    • Is hyperpigmentation a problem for all skin colours and types?

      Yes, it’s a common condition across all skin colours and can be particularly prevalent for clients with ethnic backgrounds. We have a wealth of experience in treating hyperpigmentation for ethnic skin to help combat uneven skin tones.

      Whatever your skin colour, it’s important to use a full-spectrum sun block every day and to limit your exposure to the sun.

    • What is sublative face rejuvenation?

      This cutting-edge elōs Plus treatment from Syneron Candela uses bi-polar radio frequency to deliver energy to the skin’s deeper layers without troubling the epidermis (the upper layer of skin). We use a handheld applicator with multi-electrode pins to deliver the energy in a fractional way that ablates the skin’s surface with heat. Areas that are not ablated act like a reservoir for cells to encourage healing and the production of more collagen.

      As collagen levels are boosted, skin looks refreshed and rejuvenated. This can help to improve hyperpigmentation.*

    • What is photo rejuvenation?

      This leading laser technology (PicoWay from Syneron Candela) uses the shortest pulses of energy available to break pigment into minute particles which are then eliminated naturally by the body. It’s non invasive with very little downtime.*

    • What is a skin peel?

      By expertly applying a chemical exfoliant to the skin, outer layers are exfoliated and eventually peel away. The newer skin revealed is smoother and clearer to help treat acne, acne scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.*
