Get even with skin pigmentation treatments
Searching for “Pigmentation Treatment Surrey”? Skin pigmentation issues can manifest as lighter (hypopigmentation) darker (hyperpigmentation) or patchy combinations of both. They are present in all skin colours.
But whatever the colour of the skin, or nature of the pigmentation, they are likely to have one thing in common; being a source of distress and self-consciousness for those suffering with it.
Our specialist Dermatologists at the Harley Street Skin Clinic are experienced in dealing with all types of pigmentation, and will do so with sensitivity and empathy.
Skin pigment is produced by melanocyte cells in the epidermis or hair follicles which produce melanin. It is the amount and type of melanin that gives skin its colour from white to brown to black. There are many factors that affect skin pigmentation such as ethnicity, age, hormones, genetic defects, climate, UV radiation and skin disorders.
Most patients who have concerns related to hyperpigmentation fall into these categories:
- Sun damage
- Post inflammatory
More specifically, they may include;
- Actinic Lentigines also known as liver spots, age spots or sun spots which usually appear from the age of 40 onwards for patients who been exposed to the sun when they were younger. At least 60% of the population will have some sort of sun damaged skin. They can appear on any part of the body but are particularly prevalent on face, hands, head and back. They are more prevalent in men as men generally take fewer precautionary measures to sun exposure which leaves them more prone to developing pre-cancerous cellular changes.
- Hormonal skin pigmentation known as Melasma or Chloasma. Chloasma relates to pregnancy and is often known as the pregnancy mask. Both are hormonally driven and because of this is one of the most challenging skin conditions to treat. Occurrence or recurrence can be exacerbated by birth control contraception and menopause. It can be persistent and virulent under sun exposure and requires a physical and a chemical barrier.
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is the result of an inflammatory process that has occurred in the skin. It is triggered as a result of the damage caused during the seditious outbreak. This stimulates an overproduction of melanin as a response to the ailment. The most common form of hyperpigmentation is acne but it can be as result of any skin trauma.
For treating pigmentation, a variety of solutions are available depending on your skin colour, which may be used in combination and tweaked as the results become apparent.
