Crewe Hair and Skin clinic aims to help you with skin concerns including pigmentation issues, wrinkles, fine lines and signs of ageing.
Melasma and hyperpigmentation are seen as dark patches on the face. It is seen more commonly in people with darker skin.The most important thing to do now is always sun screen with an SPF of more than 30 as the pigment will increase with more sun exposure. The sunscreen must be a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical sunscreen. Please see the Shop section of the website to shop online.
A range of options are available at the clinic to address pigmentation concerns. These include home treatment programmes. The brands used include Obagi Medical, ZO Skin medical, Cyspera. Both hydroquinone and non hydroquinone options are available.
Depending on your requires a chemical peel may be offered. Salicylic acid peel is best if skin is oily, (a glycolic acid peel is preferred if the skin is dry).
