Pigmentation & sun damage
Uneven skin tone

Irregular pigmentation is commonly caused by sun exposure, hormonal changes or acne. Post-acne pigmentation, “age spots” or melasma can be troublesome skin concerns that are usually resistant to over-the-counter skin products. They can also get worse with time. A potent treatment plan managed by a skin specialist is the best way to ensure your pigmentation is not only reduced, but does not recur.

The STORY Pigmentation Programme uses a combination of peels and prescription strength products to suppress further pigment production. It also reduces irregular pigment patches present in the skin. Our skin experts also construct a personalised ongoing management plan so you can maintain your results.

Our Expertise

We choose from a wide range of skin peels and skincare products that target pigmentation to formulate the best, bespoke plan for you. We use the following active ingredients to tackle hyperpigmentation:

  • Tretinoin.
  • Hydroquinone.
  • Kojic acid.
  • Ascorbic acid.
  • Arbutin.


The key to getting great results with our Pigmentation Programme is correct product use and regular review.

Simply purchasing skin lightening products and using them in the same way you would your regular skincare is unlikely to yield results for hyperpigmentation. It could even cause additional skin problems.

At STORY, we offer a comprehensive personal service to hold your hand and monitor your skin’s response every step of the way.

Our Pigmentation Programme includes:

  • Pre- and post-Programme skin analysis.
  • Consultation and review with a specialist as often as is required.
  • Skin preparation with an in-clinic peel.
  • Specialist home-use skincare product kit, tailored to your needs.

If you can’t find the answer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and one of our advisors can help.

This treatment is not meant to be continued long term. Once you have achieved good results we will switch your home care products to ones designed to have a “preventative” rather than “treatment” effect. These maintenance skincare products are more gentle on the skin and can be used long-term to keep pigmentation away.

Yes, when people refer to pigmentation they mean patches of skin that are darker in colour compared to the surrounding base colour. Hyperpigmentation occurs when the pigment producing cells go into overdrive – i.e. when they are “hyper” active!  Hyperpigmentation can occur in any skin tone.

Hypopigmentation – patches of lighter skin – is  rare and is usually related to an underlying medical or dermatological condition. If you have this please come for a skin assessment however we may refer you to a medical dermatologist. This treatment is not designed to treat lighter patches of skin.
