A good skincare regime with enriched vitamin C and a good sunblock may be all that’s required for some people to enjoy an even skintone, but some patients experience more problematic pigmentation that can be due to issues such as:

  • sun damage
  • melasma
  • chloasma
  • post-inflammatory pigmentation

These can prove far more difficult to treat and in the long-term, pigmentation problems tend to get worse rather than improving of their own accord..

Melasma and chloasma which are these patchy areas of pigmentation typically in darker skin types that occur on the forehead and upper lip areas can often run in families, be as a result of the oral contraceptive pill, and pregnancy. These conditions are not worrying but can be a great nuisance to a lot of people.

Treatments and expectations have to considered carefully as the wrong treatment approach could make the pigmentation worse in certain cases. However, the good news is that there are now advanced treatment options that can help to tackle pigmentation problems and promote a clearer and more even skin tone.

Sun damage in fairer skin types responds well to cosmeceutical skincare products which may contain vitamin A or Hydroquinone.

All skin types may benefit from professional treatment options using advanced laser.

Dr Vardy is fantastic, she talked me through each step of the procedure and I am incredibly happy with the results. I was a little nervous about it but she gave me great advice and is incredibly professional.

Had a hydradermie facial done with Lydia and was very pleased with the service and professionalism I received from her. I would definitely recommend her as a racialist

Lovely doctor , explained all my options and we agreed on the best one for me. I had two moles removed on the same day as my appointment and I was done in twenty minutes. I would defiantly recommend Dr Vardy as the procedure was quick and painless

I had a small mole on the face that I was thinking of removing for a good few years. I had an appointment with Dr Todman and she and her assistant were very nice and professional, they explained everything I needed to know about the mole shaving treatment. I decided to do the treatment on the same day and it was the right decision. I am very happy with the result, the mole is removed and I dont have any scars. I highly recommend Dr Todman.

I have had a number of moles removed including one on my face that I was incredibly nervous about but I had no reason to be. Dr Perry did an excellent job of each one. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but him. Thank you Dr Perry!

  1. Hi my face skin is so much darker and damaged than my body this happened after taking contraception and the damage is unreversbel except my top layer skin peeled off that is what the Dr told me in the referral. Do you do skin peeling? How much it cost me? I really want to do it am stressed.
