Hyperpigmentation Treatments in Norwood Green

Anyone can develop uneven skin tone. The condition develops very slowly but when it does make itself apparent, it can significantly impact an individual’s confidence, particularly as it often makes them look older than their actual age. 

What is Hyperpigmentation?

In individuals with the condition, the melanin-producing cells present in skin go into overdrive and this means that they produce more melanin than usual. Melanin is a substance that affects the colour of the skin. When melanin is present in excess in certain areas of the skin, dark spots will result. The opposite of hyperpigmentation is hypopigmentation, which develops when melanin is not produced in sufficient quantities, the most common form of this is Vitiligo

Melasma is the name of one form of hyperpigmentation. It can affect anyone but is more common in women. 

Melasma Treatments in Norwood Green

The skin discoloration associated with melasma usually disappears with time. However, pigmentation treatments can be used to quicken the fading of the dark spots. Tranexamic acid, topical depigmenting agents such as Avénes D-pigment and Skinceuticals pigment regulator, and chemical skin peels can be used for this purpose.
