What is skin pigmentation and hyperpigmentation?


Skin pigmentation refers to the natural colour of your skin. The colour of your skin is determined by a pigment known as melanin. If you have more melanin, you will have a darker skin tone. 


Your skin pigmentation helps to protect you from UV rays from the sun. Melanin acts like a natural sunscreen which absorbs and scatters the UV rays. This stops them from damaging the deeper layers of your skin. You should always wear sun cream to give your skin extra protection. 




If you see dark patches of skin appearing on your face or other areas of the body, this is known as hyperpigmentation.


The dark spots or patches of skin can be brown, black, pink, red or grey in colour. The most common types of dark spots are:


  • Freckles
  • Age spots or liver spots
  • Melasma
  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation from an injury or acne


Why does skin pigmentation change?


When the skin cells that produce melanin become unhealthy or damaged it can lead to changes in how much melanin your skin produces. 


The damage to healthy skin cells means that your skin makes excess melanin, which can then collect and band together to form dark patches of skin.


Causes of hyperpigmentation 


  • Excessive exposure to the sun causing sun damage 
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation – from an injury including acne and acne scars
  • Hormonal changes during puberty or pregnancy
  • Genetics 
  • Melasma – changes to your hormones which result from too much sun exposure

Skin pigmentation treatments at The One Clinic in Leicester


IPL skin rejuvenation

IPL treatment is a safe and effective method for treating specific skin pigmentation problems. It uses short beams of light energy to target pigmented skin cells and break them down. 


The intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment works at the deeper levels of your skin to help stimulate collagen and elastin production. Not only does this support the growth of healthy new skin cells, but it also keeps your skin strong and supple. 


This laser treatment can tackle several skin concerns at once. These include:


  • Sun damage 
  • Thread veins or spider veins
  • Rosacea 
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Lines and wrinkles


You will need a course of at least three treatments to get the best results. During your consultation, we will create a bespoke treatment plan that will help you achieve your skin goals. 


Chemical peels

Chemical peels also known as skin peels can work well on their own to tackle pigmentation issues or in combination with laser treatments. They come in different strengths, which makes them a good choice for all skin types. 


A light chemical peel works well on pigmentation that sits on the surface of the skin. These are suitable for both lighter and darker skin tones. 


Deep chemical skin peels work much harder to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. They can help to treat sun damage or pigmentation resulting from acne scars. Deep chemical peels are not suitable for dark skin types. 


Your doctor will discuss whether peels are the right choice for your skin and talk through other alternative treatments if they are not. 


The number of treatment sessions you will need will depend on the level of pigmentation we are treating. You will need a course of treatment to get optimal results and skin that looks more healthy and balanced.



The HydraFacial treatment is a six-step process that helps to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate your skin. 


The main part of this facial that helps correct skin pigmentation is the exfoliation. This is because by exfoliating the skin, you are removing dead skin cells and the top layer of your skin. This results in the dark spots starting to fade. 


You will require a course of treatments to benefit from removing skin pigmentation issues. The good news is that after completing a course of treatment, you will also see skin that looks healthier, more vibrant and glows.
