SKIN TALK: Pigmentation Notes by Fatma Shaheen.

"Our formulation DNA is from the treatment of hyperpigmentation and acne. This is our expertise".

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is when the skin produces excess melanin resulting in patches of skin to appear darker. Melanin is the

pigment that is responsible for giving your skin its colour.  


What are the types of Hyperpigmentation?

There are three types of hyperpigmentation: 

1. Post inflammatory trauma, caused by acne, rashes, inflammation. 

2.Age-spots and melasma caused by hormones and sun-damage.

3. Sun-damage & freckles caused by sun exposure.

What are the causes of Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is caused by increase in melanin. There are various factors that can trigger an 

increase in melanin production. Sun exposure, UV exposure, hormonal imbalance, skin injuries, inflammation.

How to treat Hyperpigmentation

There are various treatments available in clinic and most important topical products can be used to 

treat or minimise the affects. Clinical treatments include, micro-needling, radio-frequency and skin peel. 

Treatments combined with topical products which have retinol, AHA's,BHA"s and other actives to 

help treat the inflammation is best for results.

The Skin Design London hyperpigmentation treatment

Your first line of defense should always be prevention and to protect the skin with an SPF and  a good 

Vitamin C for morning use and a Vitamin A for night time. These three daily skin saviours will do 

wonders for your skin. If you have Hyperpigmentation then a gently freshening of your skin cells via a gentle exfoliation will begin the treatment process. 

The Vitamin Skin Peelshave been used in clinic for over 8 years in keeping your skin fresh, t

reating pigmentation and acne. Most products on the market will dry and inflame the skin causing all sorts of skin issues. I have seen it many times,  the promise of even skin tone and within 2-4 weeks most 

clients cannot cope with the side affects of peeling, red, irritated skin and give up.
