Skin Pigmentation


Skin pigmentation commonly occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain exposed spots on the skin. This results in dark patches on the skin that have been exposed to sunlight. 
Common causes Melasma or chloasma can also occur as a result of hormonal influences such as pregnancy and menopause.

Skin pigmentation is common in both men and women. However,
people with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with prolonged sun exposure.

Most forms of skin pigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can affect exposed areas of skin including the face and the back of the hands.


We can effectively treat Pigmentation with Microdermabrasion and Skin Peels. A full assessment of your skin is carried out by our specialist team to establish how deep the skin pigmentation problem is. If it is well below the surface then laser treatment may be more appropriate. If it is nearer the surface then a treatment using chemical skin peels may be more suitable. There are several types of Skin Peels to deal with most skin pigmentation problems all of which are extremely safe and designed to revitalise your skin.

Skin peels are rubbed gently into your skin to remove the outer layers of dead skin cells by exfoliation, removing or fading the discolouration in the skin, encouraging collagen production helping new cells to grow and tightening the skin resulting in a more even, healthier, glowing, fresher, younger looking skin tone. Your skin will feel noticeably softer.

This is all achieved without invasive surgery and the side effects associated with surgery. It is painless although for a few days you may see slight skin peeling.
