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 have absolutely loved my treatments, this has been my fifth of initial six, with Anna, Becky and tonight with Lydia. I particularly liked the spa feel that Lydia provided this evening, I felt utterly relaxed and enjoyed it immensely. I’m going to continue with this treatment for sure and can see the results already. Thank you so so much. Look forward to the next one already. I have also been recommending it to my friends.

  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.
