Even skin tone
Creams are often used as a first line of treatment, with Avénes D-pigment and Skinceuticals pigment regulator proving popular. However, they are superficial and do not treat the underlying issues. Creams act on the epidermis, the skin’s surface, yet the majority of problems develop deeper under the skin.
Hyperpigmentation treatments in Harrow
For those who wish to take serious action with regards to tackling their un-even skin tones, treatments such as tranexamic acid injections, prescription-only de-pigmenting creams and skin peels are available.
Tranexamic acid is injected into areas of hyperpigmentation. It works deep within the skin. Skin peels are applied to the surface of the skin but can penetrate through to reach the deeper layers. Prescription-only de-pigmenting creams typically contain hydroquinone, which inhibits melanin production and therefore prevents the skin from producing the substance responsible for the dark spots.
