Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition which causes the skin to become darker in certain areas due to an excess production of melanin in the skin. This can occur almost anywhere on the body, and often results in dark areas of skin called ‘age spots’ or ‘liver spots’. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, acne and other skin injuries.

How can hyperpigmentation be treated?

We offer a number of treatments for hyperpigmentation, depending on what kind of discolouration the patient is suffering from.

Treatments include:

All of these are effective and straightforward. We would of course recommend a private consultation with Dr. Barbara Kubicka before a specific course of treatment is recommended.

Who is hyperpigmentation treatment for?

Anyone who is unhappy with the discolouration of their skin may benefit from hyperpigmentation treatment.

Anybody can suffer from hyperpigmentation; in some cases the condition can be subtle, whereas with some people it is more pronounced. Most of our patients believe that their hyperpigmentation is too visible, and that it is causing them to feel insecure and less confident. We tend to see a lot of older patients opting for these treatments, because as we age, the body is less capable of producing melanin consistently and has also had more exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.

How much will it cost?

The cost of your procedure will depend on the kind of treatment that is deemed most appropriate for addressing your hyperpigmentation. As an indication, mesotherapy pricing starts at just £150.
