HYPERPIGMENTATION – Conditions

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation presents as dark spots or patches on the face and body, and can be age related, or secondary to sun damage or even hormonal and pregnancy related. It can be distressing and difficult to cover with make up.

Melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation, is patches of deep dermal pigmentation that usually appears symmetrically on the face. Whatever your concern we can carry out a thorough consultation to devise a bespoke treatment plan.

We have various cosmetic treatments that can help to reduce rosacea symptoms and improve the appearance of the skin. Book a consultation to learn more.


Why consider hyperpigmentation treatments?

Hyperpigmentation can be an upsetting condition affecting the skin, but with the best skin rejuvenation treatments we can improve the appearance of your skin and help you feel youthful again. Our anti-ageing experts are on hand to tailor a skin rejuvenation treatment plan to your needs.

Skin rejuvenation treatments can take shape in a variety of ways. For hyperpigmentation the treatment needs to focus on regenerating the skin. Age spots and brown spots are examples of hyperpigmentation and can easily be treated, so there is no reason to feel unhappy in your skin anymore.

Who is suitable for hyperpigmentation treatments?

Those aware of ageing marks on the skin can benefit from our treatments. Age spots and brown spot can affect any area of the face and body, most notably the face, neck and hands in many cases. Due to prolonged or more regular exposure to the sun and powerful UVA/UVB rays the face, neck and hands are more likely to suffer the effects of sun damage, including pigmentation marks and freckles.
Whilst these marks of sun damage are usually harmless they do age one’s appearance and many patients decide they would rather have them treated using cosmetic treatments.


What treatments can help treat hyperpigmentation?

At Elixir Cosmetics we offer a selection of anti-ageing skin rejuvenation treatments designed to eliminate skin pigmentation issues, such as age spots and brown spots. Treating hyperpigmentation is quick and effective and offers clients a new-found self confidence.

We can offer patients several rosacea treatments in order to reduce facial redness and visible facial blood vessels. Here are some of our treatments available to help you.
