What is hyperpigmentation?
Skin pigmentation is a common condition in which patches of skin appear darker in colour than your natural skin, for example sun spots, liver spots and age spots on the face, arms and hands, due to excess melanin. Several non-invasive treatments offered at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic, such as medical-grade skin care, skin lightening products, chemical peels and mesotherapy, can improve skin troubled by pigmentation for a healthier and more even looking appearance.
There are two types of hyperpigmentation: inflammatory or non-inflammatory such as melisma. Dark ethnic skin is more likely to develop pigmentation problems.
Treatments may be combined for optimum results.
Medical skincare products available at the clinic include Dr. Obagi’s ZO® range and the Tebiskin® range. These are therapeutic treatment protocols available only by prescription, and skincare regimes for healthier skin, based on the latest advances in skin therapy technology for a more effective clinical approach. They treat a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions, such as hyperpigmentation.
Skin lightening products are available with and without hydroquinone to treat and stabilise hyperpigmentation conditions without bleaching and help stimulate collagen and elastin production for a natural evenly-blended skin tone.
Mesotherapy targets problem areas of the body through a series of micro-injections that contain active ingredients to replace naturally occurring vitamins and nutrients to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin for healthy, glowing skin.
