HYPERPIGMENTATION

 - Harley Street, London
Dark spots or hyperpigmentation are due to the overproduction of melanin in the skin by melanocytes.This extra melanin can be triggered by a lot of different things. Hormones - eg preganancy, Sun can increase the level of melanin, and age can increase the size of the melanocytes (why we see dark age spots in older patients).

Other factors, like skin irritation as a result of acne, waxing, and harsh scrubs, can also cause dark spots.

Treatment Options for Hyperpigmentation:

Retinoids & Lightening creams.
Rupesh consider prescription-strength hydroquinone, alone or combined with other topicals like retinoids, to be the gold standard for fading dark spots because it slows the production of pigment. Unlike many of the ingredients in OTC products, it almost always works at eliminating hyperpigmentation. However, hydroquinone treatment should be closely monitored because in high concentrations hydroquinone can cause sun sensitivity and may bleach the skin.

Chemical peel (The Perfect Peel)

Chemical peels like The Perfect Peel remove the upper layers of dead skin helping to reduce the dull appearance of the skin so that it reflects light better and appears to glow. Over time, these treatments can stimulate collagen production, enhance cellular turnover, and reduce the appearance of dark spots. The perfect peel is a 5 acid blended peel with Glutathione, vitamins & minerals.

Microneedling (Dermapen)

Performed using a medical-grade, stainless steel Pen covered with hundreds of tiny spikes, the tool creates a series of micro-injuries in effort to rebuild the skin collagen production along with elasticity. We use microneedling up to the depth of 3mm which you cant performe in a beauty salon or at home.
