What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation appears as darkened patches or spots on the skin that make skin look uneven. It is the skins way of protecting itself against trauma and can appear due to environmental damage, breakouts and hormonal changes in the body. 


While increased pigmentation usually isn’t harmful, it can be a symptom of another medical condition.

Allow me to create a bespoke treatment plan to successfully tackle hyperpigmentation, leaving you with a clearer complexion.

What Causes Pigmentation?

Sun Damage

This is caused by overstimulation of melanocytes which create patches of darker skin and become more pronounced as we age.  It is common to get this type of pigmentation following over exposure to the sun or tanning beds.


Age Spots

Often found on the hands and face in older patients, these spots vary in size, they are harmless but unsightly and very ageing. 


Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation or Trauma

Scars can often heal with hyperpigmentation, this is more common in people with darker complexions.  The scarring can be post-surgical, burns, accidental injury or most commonly from bites, stings and scratches.



Melasma is often associated with hormonal changes in the skin, this can be from taking the contraceptive pill or can show up during pregnancy – often referred to as a ‘pregnancy mask’.​​



Certain drugs or medications can cause sensitivity to sunlight resulting in pigmentation.

The biggest risk factors for general hyperpigmentation are sun exposure and inflammation, as both situations can increase melanin production. The greater your exposure to the sun, the greater your risk of increased skin pigmentation.
