PIGMENTATION

At Omniya Clinic in London

Pigmentation, or hyperpigmentation, is when the body produces too much melanin, causing discolouration in certain parts of the skin. This can be localised or diffuse (ie all over). The causes can be varied and include UVA damage from the sun, hormonal changes (as a result of pregnancy) or from other skin conditions such as acne or rosacea.

Individuals in hotter climes and with darker skin tend to have more hyperpigmentation than here in the UK. Examples of hyperpigmentation include age spots, sun spots and freckles.

There are various methods available to help reduce pigmentation. These include skin peels, microneedling, laser treatment and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. With a chemical peel the skin’s outer layers are removed. This can encourage new cell and collagen growth in a more ‘organised’ fashion.

Ablative laser resurfacing uses heat to stimulate collagen production. Short pulses of light can shatter the melanin in dark patches, making them less obvious. Microneedling, together with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can also be effective for getting rid of unwanted areas of hyperpigmentation. The heat from needles, together with the healing help from PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production. The form of treatment earned the nickname Vampire Facial several years ago when it grew in popularity.

    • Great experience overall. The hormone doctor is phenomenal and has helped me a great deal. I wont go into too much detail but she has helped me in all aspects of my life. I have more energy I'm sleeping better. They have amazing skin treatments too. I recently tried PRP dermapen and my skin looks and feels great. - Danilo

      If you are thinking of going on Hormone Replacement Therapy I would highly recommend Dr Sohere Roked. She is the best doctor I have ever met. She listens and understands her patients (I know because my 2 sisters also see her) Her approach is different to other doctors as she is a trained psychologist - She understands the balance between hormone therapy and mental health. She has honestly saved my life! - Meridith

      Great clinic. Had the designer lip filler with Dr Thu Linh and my lips look fantastic, they look natural too which I was worried about! Great team! - Vanessa

    • I'm very impressed with this clinic. My experience from booking in with the reception team to being seen by one of their doctors has been phenomenal. I will definitely be recommending your services. Thank you Dr Roked for the level of care and how you've helped me so far. - Fred

      Fantastic clinic. Everything you need in one place, I started seeing Dr Roked for HRT. She has changed my life. They have a pharmacy too which is convenient for me. I never write reviews but this clinic has changed my life! - Vanessa

      I have had a great experience with Omniya and Dr Roked. I started TRT at the ripe old age of 58 and I have never felt better. Who knew hormones could make such an impact on someones life! - Richard

    • I've been going to Omniya for years and I've always been impressed. This review is long overdue. I've had a few procedures done with them and I've been thinking of doing a hair transplant for years, now that they're offering it I will definitely go ahead with it. They only work with the best doctors. Thank you Omniya. - Adam

    • I was having trouble with my acne for a while. I had been to a few clinics before Omniya but didn't get the results I wanted.

      Omniya was recommended and had great reviews. I saw Kerry Lou, one of their skin specialist. She explained that with the right treatment and a little patience I would see results. I brought a course of facials. Each one is slightly different depending on what is needed. I'm very happy with the improvement. - Shayma

    • I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt

      Pigmentation FAQ’s

      The results of IPL treatments are permanent, but does not prevent problems from occurring. Results are improved with proper maintenance, protecting your skin from sun damage.

      A course can be anything from four to six sessions, with these carried out roughly every four weeks.
