Pigmentation is a common condition in which patches of the skin become darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation) in colour than the normal surrounding skin due to the pigment melanin. Pigmentation is usually harmless but can be more ageing than fine lines, and can become worse if left untreated.
We provide treatments for conditions related to hyperpigmentation, rather than hypopigmentation conditions such as Vitiligo. Let our professionals give you that brighter clearer look and leave you with an even skin tone using a safe solution.
What do pigmentation treatments involve?
Skin peels are very effective at removing the excess pigmentation caused as a result of sun damage, through ageing or hormonal changes. They also help with the cell renewal process as it lightens marks on the skin. The Professional Strength Pigmentation Peel is suitable for widespread or isolated pigmentation, as it works in the deeper levels of skin to remove areas of pigmentation and prevent it from recurring, leaving a clear complexion. This peel is also suitable for both fairer and darker skin complexions.
For more extensive and deeper Pigmentation, Fractional Mesotherapy or Micro Needling may be suitable to gain the most effective and desirable results.
These treatments use controlled wounding to create tiny channels in the deeper dermal layers of the skin which naturally stimulate collagen production in the body and renew skin cells. The difference being the length of the short fine needles, being 0.1mm to 0.5mm for Fractional Mesotherapy, with no topical numbing cream required and Micro Needling, using a needle depth of 0.5mm to 1.5mm with the use of a numbing cream to ease any discomfort.
Both processes trigger the onset of the body’s natural wound healing process where growth factors are stimulated and two of the key building blocks of the skin – new collagen and elastin – are produced, causing older, damaged collagen to break down. A highly concentrated product solution made up of antioxidant vitamins, peptides and growth factors is applied to the skin to enhance results and make the treatment more comfortable.
The result is a breakdown of pigmentation to reveal a healthy, even skin tone.
