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.

The benefits of Skin Peel Treatments
SkinMeds skincare 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 and chemistry.
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.
