Cosmetic Treatments to Tackle Hyper Pigmentation
Hyperpigmentation of the skin although harmless is a commonly treated condition here at Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic. The condition of hyperpigmentation can be recognised when patches of your skin start to become a darker shade when compared to the surrounding skin tone. This is caused by the skin producing more melanin which is the pigment that gives skin colour and in effect creates patches of darker skin.
Types of Hyper Pigmentation
Hyperpigmentation includes several different types of contributing conditions which include:
All types of hyperpigmentation can frequently appear on a person’s hands, face, neck and all areas that regularly come in contact or are exposed to sunlight. Therefore, Dr Sagoo through his years of training and experience can offer a variety of professional cosmetic treatment to reduce and fight the effect of hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Hyper Pigmentation Treatments
Limelight IPL Treatment – Exceptional skin rejuvenation treatment delivering a non-invasive light treatment. IPL unlike the fractional laser uses intense broadband light, delivering energy to both the superficial and deep layers of the skin. Therefore, smoothens the skin, fading the appearance of sunspots, melasma and hyperpigmentation.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing – A precision laser treatment targeting the treatment area with frequent laser pulses to remove hyperpigmentation. The fractional laser resurfacing treatment creates safe and controlled micro-injuries in the epidermis of the skin to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process reducing the prominence of the skin’s discolouration.
Chemical Peels – Professional grade chemical peels use strong concentrates of glycolic acids penetrating the dermis of the skin removing the dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new skin cells. This smoothens the skin and makes the skin firm gradually lighten up areas affected by hyperpigmentation.
