Pigmentation is a common skin condition whereby areas of the skin can become lighter or darker.


Become lighter (Hypopigmentaton) or darker (Hyperpigmentation) than the surrounding area.

Every human being contains a pigment known as Melanin which determines the colour of your eyes, skin and hair. A healthy skin will have a normal amount of Melanin production resulting in a smooth and even skin tone, however often the cells that produce Melanin can become damaged. If this happens the cells may start to produce extra Melanin as a protective measure or will stop producing Melanin completely, either of these changes will result in a form of Pigmentation.

How can Aesthetics Of Liverpool help?

At Aesthetics of Liverpool we are able to treat Pigmentation safely and effectively to create a smooth even skin tone.

Treatments Available


There are many reasons for the causes of Pigmentation, some being:• Hormonal Changes e.g Pregnancy
• Sun Damage
• Genetic Factors
• Injury/Trauma e.g As a result of skin conditions such as Acne or Rosacea

It is difficult to prevent Pigmentation especially if it has occurred as a result of hormonal changes or genetics. The following steps can be taken to limit further damage:• Wearing an SPF on a daily basis.
• Using products that contain Sulforaphane will help lighten pigmentation.
• Using an exfoliator containing Glycolic Acid, which will remove dead skin cells and lightens dark marks.

Prior to any treatment we will invite you to the Aesthetic of Liverpool clinic for an consultation where we you will be able to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve from treatment. We will then be able to establish what treatment is best suited for your skin type.
