This is darkening of the skin due to excess skin pigment (melanin) and commonly occurs in patches on the face following sun exposure, age, pregnancy or oral contraceptive pill use.
Hyperpigmentation can be very distressing and difficult to manage. At Barstable clinic the following options are available for hyperpigmentation:
- Topical retinol cream (£125)
- VIP kojic acid facial peel (£250)
- Dermamelan™ – an advanced pigmentation treatment which is applied as a facial mask and removed after 8-12 hours, with a follow-on cream to be used (£750)
We suggest you have a free consultation to discuss which option is most appropriate.
