Skinqure is an East Yorkshire Clinic and we are expert in pigmentation treatments. 

Pigmentation is a common in aging skin and due to hormonal imbalance. It frequently occurs during and after pregnancy (MELASMA) and as we age malfunctioning melanocytes lead to over production of melanin. Melasma treatment can be challenging and expensive with variable results. 

Sun exposure worsens pigmentation abnormalities can reoccur on exposure to the sun after treatment.

Pigmentation treatment is challenging because pigment can occur at variable depths in the skin. Harsh treatments may result in only TEMPORARY improvement and may actually INCREASE deep pigmentation in the long term, this is because inflammation in your skin or trauma to the skin leads to INFLAMMATION which itself causes pigmentation. (PIH or Post Inflammatory Hyper pigmentation)

We offer a range of treatments 

  1. Pigment fading creams such Cyspera or Hydroquinone and Microdermabrasion from £300
  2. Skin peels (a course) from £500
  3. Dermamelan mask (and maintenance cream) £1000

One of the most effective treatments for pigmentation is the DERMAMELAN mask. The mask is applied in the clinic and worn for at least EIGHT hours. It is then removed and the home treatment starts for at least THREE months. Dermamealan is formulation to block the pigment cascade at different points to effectively PREVENT manufacturer of melanin within the melanocytes.

Dermamelan mask is a unique product that effectively diminishes and removes pigmentation over a period of a few months.

Dermamelan is effective on all skin types. It requires a maintenance treatment over a 3 month period and may have to be repeated but it offers a safe and effective solution to deep pigmentation which is extremely challenging to remove.

Prices from £500 for peels and £1000 for dermamelan mask and maintenance creams
