Skin Pigmentation Treatment


Skin Pigmentation Treatment at Hale Road Medical Centre

Skin pigmentation disorders, for example melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, are common skin conditions that affect people of all ages and skin tones. While some cases of skin pigmentation are harmless and not worrisome, others may cause you discomfort or embarrassment if you are affected by them. Hale Road Medica Centre offers effective treatment to help reduce or eliminate your unwanted skin pigmentation.

Pigmentation is an umbrella term used to describe many different types of skin discoloration. It can affect any part of the body but most commonly appears on the face, hands, arms, and neck.


Patches form of darker skin than the surrounding areas, due to an increase in melanin production. This increased production can be caused by genetics, hormones or medications, or environmental factors such as UV radiation from the sun. These darkened patches can range in size from small spots to large areas of discoloration on the face or body.

  • Hyperpigmentation is a type of pigmentation that occurs when the body produces too much pigment (melanin) in certain areas, resulting in dark spots or patches on the skin.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) occurs when the body overproduces melanin as a response to inflammation or injury to the skin.
  • Melasma is another form of pigmentation caused by sun exposure, hormonal changes, and/or genetics.
  • Other pigmentation types include age spots and freckles.


While pigmentation may be harmless in some cases, it can also indicate underlying health problems. You should always consult your GP for an expert opinion on all factors relating to your health.

Skin pigmentation can be caused by a variety of factors including:


  • Overexposure to UV rays from the sun


  • Hormonal changes such as pregnancy or taking birth control pills can also cause pigmentation issues.


  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) occurs after an inflammatory event such as acne, cuts or scrapes, eczema flare-ups, or even laser treatments.


  • Certain medications or cosmetics can also cause pigmentation issues over time.


  • Genetics and skin types may play a role in some cases of melasma and other pigment conditions as well.


  • Additionally, some medical conditions such as Addison’s disease may also contribute to this condition.

There are many treatment options available for those who are looking to reduce the appearance of their pigmented areas. The treatment depends on the cause and severity of your condition. At Hale Road Medical Centre we specialize in offering treatment for darker and olive skin tones.

For mild cases of discoloration caused by sun exposure or aging, topical pigmentation cream containing hydroquinone or other lightening agents may help reduce its appearance over time. Other medically appropriate creams tailored to an individual’s specific condition may also be prescribed on a script basis depending on their needs.

For more stubborn cases of melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentations such as those caused by medications or other medical conditions, patients should seek out a healthcare professional for an evaluation and personalized treatment plan using specially tailored creams prescribed specifically for their specific requirements.

In some cases, you may be referred for laser pigmentation removal treatments where medical grade lasers can help reduce the appearance of dark spots or patches of pigmentation on your face or body.

Additionally, you should always heed general skincare advice so that your skin stays healthy post treatment and while dealing with any kind of pigment condition. Practice protective behaviour when exposed to sunlight by wearing sunscreen every day with at least SPF 30 rating which will help prevent further damage from UV rays. Regular use of sunscreen cream can also help to minimize existing discolorations over time.


Treatment at Hale Road Medical Centre

If you suspect that you have a skin pigmentation disorder, it’s important to seek out medical advice so you can receive an accurate diagnosis before beginning any treatment plan tailored specifically for your specific needs.

Consulting with Hale Road Medical Centre for your treatment can prove less expensive than seeing a dermatologist, with the same end results.

Book your consultation at Hale Road Medical Centre to obtain a script for the medically appropriate pigmentation creams tailored to your individual treatment. These creams work by inhibiting tyrosinase (an enzyme responsible for melanin production) and encouraging cell turnover so that new cells with less melanin come up from beneath existing layers.

Creams containing hydroquinone have been found to be especially helpful in reducing melanin production when used consistently over time. However, it is very important not to use these products without consulting with a medical professional first as they may come with side effects such as redness or irritation if used incorrectly.

Skin Pigmentation is a common condition that affects many people worldwide. The good news is that there are pigmentation treatments available that can help you reduce its appearance depending on its severity and underlying cause(s). Everyone’s situation is different so it’s important that you consult with a medical professional. If you think you might have some sort of pigment issue affecting your skin, book your consultation with Hale Road Medical Centre today for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. With proper care and attention your skin discolorations will be easier to manage and you should soon find your complexion looking clearer and brighter than ever before!
