Pigmentation

Pigmentation Treatment

Skin pigmentation is a concern commonly seen at The Skin to Love Clinic which has two main forms; hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. In hyperpigmented skin, dark patches of your skin become darker than the surrounding skin; this can show itself in the form of sun damage, sun spots, freckles, dark patches and Melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy.

What is the Hype About Hyperpigmentation?

All skin types are susceptible to UV damage, both lighter and darker skin. Therefore, pigmentation issues; in fact, the more melanocytes (the cells which give your skin its colour) found within the skin the more likely they are to be stimulated and create an uneven skin tone.

As with all skincare concerns, it’s important to have your skin thoroughly assessed prior to treating any form of pigmentation. Amongst other things, it must be established how deep or superficial the pigmentation is and if the pigmentation is hormonally induced or not as this will indicate how your pigmentation can be treated safely.

It is important to note that reducing some pigmentation may not be a quick process and, regardless of the type of pigmentation, using a high factor SPF daily is vital in supporting your results and helping to prevent new pigmentation issues from arising.

“I have had two medically reviewed Fraxel laser treatments done and have always found the staff very helpful. I am very happy with my treatment results and have seen 60-70% improvement in my skin tone, texture and colour. I would definitely recommend this treatment for anyone with brown spots due to sun exposure and to improve overall skin appearance.” Nozie

“What a fantastic clinic! The staff are all passionate about skin health and are very knowledgeable. The service is 5 star. I was never rushed, was offered more than enough information which was explained clearly so that I understood it and was made to feel like an important client. There are not many clinics that offer the specialist treatments that Skin to Love do. I also decided to try their products and am equally thrilled.” Liz

“The care the team show is exemplary, especially their follow up care to every treatment.” Laurie

What Causes Pigmentation?

There are two main types of pigmentation issues; hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin and hypopigmentation is the loss of skin colour. The loss of skin colour can be triggered by a number of causes such as injury, genetic conditions and environmental conditions. If a person notices other symptoms alongside hyperpigmentation, they should seek advice from their doctor or a medically reviewed and certified dermatologist.

Darkening of the skin can also be caused by a number of factors; scarring, age spots, exposure to sunlight and Addison’s disease can lead to skin darkening, as well as hormonal changes, such as pregnancy. Hormonal pigmentation is called Melasma and is incredibly common, Zion Market Research found that 50% to 75% of pregnant Americans and 80% of pregnant women in Mexico have melasma.

How to Treat Hyperpigmentation and Sun Exposure?

This very much depends on the type of pigmentation you have. It’s always advisable to have a Visia scan with a professional so that you’re able to see how deep your pigmentation is this can give some guidance on the type of treatment that is most suitable for you. Kerri, Clinic Manager of The Skin to Love Clinic, explains:

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to treating pigmentation and I would absolutely advise getting advice from a professional who understands the condition and the available treatments. Certain types of pigmentation, such as Melasma, should be treated very cautiously as some treatments can actually stimulate the condition to look worse.

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Dr Emma was so patient and gentle during my procedure. She is very good at what she does and is so kind! The treatment was one big step to making me feel more confident with my appearance and it is reassuring that she will answer any and all questions I have.

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
