Hyperpigmentation is the name given to the brown patches on skin that become darker than surrounding areas of skin. It is a common skin condition which can affect all skin types.
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin. Melanin is the natural pigment that gives our skin, hair and eyes their colour. There are a number of factors that can trigger an increase in melanin production, but the main causes are sun exposure, hormonal influences, age and skin injuries or inflammation.
Hyperpigmentation treatment with Dr Victoria that gets the best results is the iPixel Skin Resurfacing Laser. Our hyperpigmentation laser treatment penetrates the skin and targets damaged areas of the epidermis. This in turn will stimulate the repair process of the skin to regenerate new skin cells whilst stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. As more collagen is produced, scars and pigmentation begins to fade making your skin have a smoother and more radiant look.
Our treatments are often a blend of technologically advanced procedures and more traditional approaches while we give the best patient care from the moment you come in for a consultation. This patient care doesn’t just stop after your treatment, but we offer free ongoing advice to our patients whenever they have any questions.
