Hyperpigmentation treatment at Adonia Medical Clinic
Dermamelan and Cosmelan are leading names in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, whatever its cause. Our expert skin products use the latest science and proven ingredients to restore skin’s radiance, and can be used on Black, Asian, Caucasian and mixed heritage skin. With a carefully considered treatment plan, we can help target blemishes and dark spots, helping your skin feel brighter and more balanced.
These medical-grade, medium-depth chemical peels target melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its natural colour. They’re a minimally-invasive way of blocking melanin production in the body, preventing dark spots from surfacing, and reducing the appearance of existing blemishes. We can also offer TCA, VI and our perfect peel to target hyperpigmentation.View Our Results
