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.

Customer Testimonials

I finished my 3 C02 treatments in March and I am really pleased with the results.  I am in my mid 60s, so wasn’t expecting miracles!  It took another couple of months after the treatments finished before I really noticed an improvement  - the lines on my face have softened considerably and my skin is much brighter and clearer.  So many friends have told me how healthy I look but more importantly I feel much happier and confident. I am very impressed with the Lynton Clinic and Kirsty who did my treatments.

Susan Barrington- Smith

Excellent experience. Skin glowing after treatment. Lynton clinic is a real gem and Kirsty and Emma make you feel so relaxed. Excellent practitioners.

Debbie, Wilmslow

My skin looks so much clearer, I even cried the other morning when I saw it and it looked so much better! I am so happy with my results!

Jenny M

This is a new treatment for me, Kirsty was very thorough and explained the whole process in detail which made me feel very confident.

Helen, Newport, Telford

I recommend laser hair removal at The Lynton Clinic as it has been a very positive experience for me with fantastic results. Kirsty fully explains what the treatment entails and carries it out with such professionalism that you know you are in good hands. I wouldn't go to any other clinic for treatment.


Very good, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional as always

Megan, Sandbach

I would definitely recommend Lynton. Friendly people who know what they are doing

Tracy Robinson

I am so glad the Lynton Clinic was recommended to me by a doctor friend and I too highly recommend them. The staff is really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I had 2 treatments for hyperpigmentation and am delighted with the result. My complexion looks so much fresher and brighter. Many friends have commented on how well I look. I hated the brown spots on the backs of my hands, so ageing - now they are completely gone.

Susan Barrington-Smith

Thank you so much for doing some amazing work on my neck, face and chest. I really respect and trust what you do. Take care! See you soon and keep safe!

Anne, Whalley Range, Manchester
