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.

I had a hydrafacial with Georgia and absolutely loved it. Not only was Georgia a lovely girl but performed one of the best hydrafacials I’ve had yet. She included my neck which not many places do and when I asked her to focus on my chin area, she payed extra attention there. Thanks Georgia!

I had HD Brows with Sienna and I have never had so many positive compliments before! She fixed my eyebrows from when my last therapist waxed off half of my hair and shaped them to make my eyes pop. She did such a good even my boyfriend noticed!

I have been visiting Cosmedics for 3 years for electrolysis. The clinic was recommended by a friend who continues with treatment there and I have recommended another friend who now attends regularly. Sienna in particular is skilful and pleasant, and I now only book appointments with her. Reception staff are very helpful and friendly. On one occasion I was asked to call urgently about my appointment and I think I spoke to the call centre who didn't know anything about the call. As I was away at the time I planned to ring Putney for clarification on my return, but, forgot which was annoying as when I went to my next appointment was told it was cancelled as Sienna was on leave. I complained at the time to reception staff and they said they would follow it up, and that wasn't the first time there had been problems with the call centre.

  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.
