Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that affects many people. It is caused by an overproduction of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its colour.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun exposure, hormones, genetics, and certain medications. It can appear as dark spots, age spots, melasma, and other discolourations. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and make your skin look more even and youthful. These treatments can range from topical creams, to laser treatments, depending on the severity of the hyperpigmentation.Book Your Free Consultation

PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, placing it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the affected area. The platelets contain growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peels work by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the outer layer of skin to peel off. This process removes the damaged skin cells that are causing the hyperpigmentation and stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells. The depth of the peel and the type of chemical used will depend on the severity of the hyperpigmentation and the individual’s skin type.
Laser treatments work by targeting the excess melanin in the affected areas and breaking it down, leading to a more even skin tone. The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin, which causes the pigment to fragment into smaller particles that are naturally eliminated by the body. Laser treatments are non-invasive and can be customised to suit individual skin types and concerns.
The ZO Skin Health Brightalive Non-Retinol Skin Brightener is a popular choice for addressing hyperpigmentation, as it contains a blend of skin-brightening ingredients such as daisy flower extract and glycerin. Another option is the ZO Skin Health Brightenex 1.0% Retinol, which combines retinol with skin-brightening agents to help fade dark spots and even out skin tone. Additionally, the ZO Skin Health Pigment Control + Blending Crème is a powerful treatment that contains a high concentration of hydroquinone, a skin-lightening ingredient that can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
