Melasma Treatement with world leading technology delivered by consultant dermatologist Dr. Rajani Nalluri

Uneven skin tone is one of the most common skin concerns. Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin, most often caused by overactive melanocytes (pigment cells) which produce melanin otherwise known as pigmentation. Melanin is the pigment that gives the body its natural colour. Melasma is a form of hyperpigmentation where the pigmentation is in the deep dermis, deeper than pigmentation caused by sun damage. Melasma most commonly occurs in pregnant women or women experiencing hormonal changes. These hormonal changes typically produce pigmentation on the face area.

With our world-leading devices and medical-grade skincare at The Lynton Clinic, Holmes Chapel our consultant dermatologist Dr. Rajani Nalluri offers melasma treatments that enables us to achieve revitalised skin for our patients. (See also treatment for age spots and sun damage.)


Melasma treatment summary
IPL and Laser Pigmentation Removal

Dr. Rajani Nalluri, our consultant dermatologist uses a systematic approach to work out the cause and triggers of your pigmentary problem and identify the best treatment for your melasma. During your consultation, she will perform a skin examination to determine whether the pigmentation is deep (dermal) or superficial (epidermal). Together you will create a customised treatment plan to best target your concerns.

We have a range of treatment options including medical prescriptions and cosmetic treatments to achieve the best results. These treatments include prescriptions creams, professional skincare, chemical peels, and laser and light therapy. All treatments are aimed at preventing melanocytes from transferring pigment into the skin as well as creating a flawless complexion.



What does melasma look like?

 The appearance of melasma is slightly different from sun damage, melasma normally presents as blotchy hyperpigmented patches on the face, usually on the forehead cheeks, nose, upper lip, and chin.  Melasma can sometimes be found on other parts of the body, typically those prone to more sun exposure, such as the shoulders. Melasma will normally appear during pregnancy or after hormonal treatment such as the contraceptive pill. Like all types of pigmentation melasma will get worse with sun exposure.

If you are unsure if your pigmentation is melasma or sun damage, our consultant dermatologist Dr Rajani through a skin examination will be able to advise.



What is melasma?

Melasma is a specific type of hyperpigmentation, it is a condition that affects 90% of women. Melasma is differentiated from other forms of hyperpigmentation mainly because the cause is not sun-related, melasma occurs due to hormonal changes within the body. This is why you may hear melasma referred to as “the mask of pregnancy,” as pregnant women are much more likely to have this condition. In fact, melasma is found much more prevalently in women, pregnant or not due to its hormonal cause.

Tracy Robinson

I have had several fractional laser sessions at The Lynton Clinic on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. The treatments were quick and are absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to The Lynton Clinic Team.

Katie Mares

I highly recommend The Lynton Clinic as the treatments are given by highly skilled and professional staff. I had laser treatment for tattoo removal by Kirsty Turnbull and I also have other treatments at the clinic. After visiting the Clinic on a number of different occasions the experience is always the same. You are made to feel relaxed,everything is fully explained and the treatments are of the highest standard. The staff really care about their clients and want to give you the best experience possible. I am thrilled with the outcome of my tattoo removal and am nearing the end of this treatment. I can't say enough positive things about Kirsty and The Lynton Clinic.
