What are the benefits of treating pigmentation?

  • Improve appearance of hyperpigmentation and brighten skin
  • Stimulate collagen production to reduce signs of ageing 
  • Soften and smooth skin texture
  • Improve your confidence without makeup

What is pigmentation?

Pigmentation can come in many forms – for example, as age spots or liver spots – and is a natural and very common skin condition. It appears as areas of darkened skin, which can affect any part of the body, but frequently occurs on prominent places like the face, neck and hands – making it a very unwanted skin condition! Melasma is another common type of pigmentation that is often seen during pregnancy and menopause.

What causes pigmentation?

Pigmentation is caused by excess production of melanin in the skin, which in turn can be caused by many things – including sun damage, scarring from acne, hormones and just the simple side effects of ageing.

What treatments are available?

Chemical peels and microneedling are both excellent treatments to remove that upper layer of damaged skin, allowing healthy and evenly textured skin to grow in its place. However, pigmentation can mainly be managed with a regular medical-grade skincare routine that is specifically tailored to the type of pigmentation you are suffering from.

Qualifications, Accolades and Experience

I qualified as dentist in 2007 and have since gained a Level 7 qualification in injectable treatments (the highest possible), so you can trust that I have the skills and knowledge to deliver your treatment safely and successfully.

I completed a six-month mentorship programme with Dr Lee Walker (a leader in the industry), which has ensured I am working with the most evidenced-based research in aesthetics. I also recently took part in an ultrasound and cadaver course, which allows me to see where blood vessels are and reduce the risk of complications.

In addition, I am a senior clinical mentor, an international speaker and a key opinion leader for a dermal filler brand, demonstrating my extensive experience training other medical aesthetic practitioners.

My team and I are fully trained and equipped to manage any adverse events that may occur, thanks to my training and membership of the Complications in Medical Aesthetic Collaborative (CMAC). You can trust you are in safe hands when you undergo any treatment at my clinic.
