Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless
condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the
normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of
melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour,
forms deposits in the skin.
Age or 'liver' spots are a common form of
hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage and these
small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and
face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun.
Hyperpigmentation is also evident in melasma (also
known as 'the mask of pregnancy') or chloasma spots, which are
larger patches of darker skin that usually occur as a result of
hormonal changes (e.g. pregnancy).
Freckles are an inherited example of
hyperpigmentation, while acne scars and other injuries to the skin
are examples of external causes.
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are completely
focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you
a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations
and makes you feel confident about your appearance.
The benefits of Skin Peel
products were developed and designed to offer a simple, healthy and
safe way to rejuvenate the skin. SkinMed products are
only available from doctors and other suitably qualified medical
professionals, and combine the principles of medicine with nature
The SkinMed Renewal
System is recommended - this dramatically reduces healing time,
when used before and after the peel.
The SkinMed range
gives amazing results because of a transformation at a deeper
cellular level of the skin. SkinMed can peel, rejuvenate
and de-pigment any type of skin safely, which means that it is
even effective for darker skin types.
By using the Skin Med
range at home for at least six weeks, followed by the Enerpeel
Peel, you can expect to see the following results: a
more even skin tone; diminished fine facial lines and wrinkles; the
reduction of age spots and hyperpigmentation; improvement in
elasticity; normal oil production and skin that is more able to
hold moisture; blemish correction; improvement in active acne and
the correction of acne scars. Your skin should also have a
better defence against external factors.
Chemical skin peels,
such as the SkinMed Skin Peel, work at a much deeper level than
cosmeceutical products brought over the counter at your
local pharmacy. Over-the-counter products usually only work on
the top layer of dead skin, masking the damaged skin without
addressing its causes. Professional skin care products, such as
those used by Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, transform the health of your
skin at a much deeper level.
