Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes your skin to darken. It usually occurs when the body produces an excess of melanin. While sunlight is the leading cause of an increase in melanin production, other factors including hormonal imbalance, ageing and inflammation can alter the production of melanin in your body.
At Nuffield Aesthetics, we use Pico Laser, Chemical Peels (Lightening Peels/Jessners Peel), IPL Bright Facial and Prescription creams to target specific areas of hyperpigmentation.
At Nuffield Aesthetics, we believe in treating pigmentations with a holistic approach by using a combination of prescription creams, chemical peel, IPL and the pico laser technology. Different types of pigmentations are treated very differently to suit various skin issues. A customised plan by our trusted Doctor will get you a step closer to clear skin.
