Skin Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation appears in different forms and is caused by sun damage, hormonal changes and skin trauma.

What is Skin Pigmentation?

Skin pigmentation (Hyperpigmentation) occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain spots on the skin. Hyperpigmentation results in flat, darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in colour and can vary in size and shape.

Wearing a high SPF every day on exposed areas of your skin can help prevent pigmentation caused by sun exposure. Hormonal-induced pigmentation types such as Melasma, however, are difficult to prevent, as is hyperpigmentation from skin trauma and scarring.

Use our targeted Skin Pigmentation Treatments to permanently remove dark patches, including age spots, melasma, and freckles. Book a free consultation with our skin specialist in London today.

You can get rid of skin pigmentation with the help of Herbal Green Peel, Carbon Spectra Laser, DermaPen Microneedling, Candela Gentle Max Pro Lasers, Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel, and Picosure Pro Laser. The treatment can effectively and quickly get rid of those pigmentations on the skin of all skin types.

Skin pigmentation refers to darker patches on your skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its colour. It is produced by special cells called melanocytes. People with albinism have almost none, very dark-skinned people have a lot, and there are all of the variations in between.

What causes Skin Pigmentation?

There are many types of hyperpigmentation, as pigmentation can be caused by different factors, but the following are the most common:

Pigment Spots

Pigment spots such as age spots are caused by sun exposure. For this reason, they appear mainly on body parts that are frequently exposed, such as the face, hands, and arms. They tend to be small, darkened patches of skin.

Melasma or Chloasma

Melasma or chloasma is often referred to as “the mask of pregnancy”, as it affects 90% of pregnant women. It occurs as a result of hormonal influences such as pregnancy and birth control pills and causes dark and irregularly shaped areas on the face or arms that can be quite large.

Freckles

Freckles are often hereditary and develop due to an overproduction of melanin to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Sun exposure can often help them to develop and they commonly appear on the face, shoulders and arms.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation occurs when a skin injury or trauma heals and leaves a flat area of discolouration behind. It’s commonly found among acne sufferers, and can also be caused by cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, laser treatment, and chemical peels.

How to Prevent Skin Pigmentation

Wearing a high SPF every day on exposed areas of your skin can help to prevent pigmentation caused by sun exposure, as this protects your skin from harmful UV rays. Hormonal-induced pigmentation types such as Melasma however are difficult to prevent, as is hyperpigmentation from skin trauma and scarring.
