Hyperpigmentation & Melasma Treatment in London
Effective for All skin types – including ethnic skin
Hyperpigmentation (Dark patches on your skin) and Melasma / Chloasma (Dark patches on your face) can be a huge problem and there is often little or no treatment available on the NHS.
Here, at The GP Surgery, your Speciality Dermatology GP can provide you with a tailored treatment regime to improve your skin discolouration and allow you to maintain your natural skin tone.

If your Dermatology GP feels that you would benefit from alternative therapies (such as skin peels or laser therapy for your pigmentation disorder, she will refer you to her London clinic to have those specific procedures done).
Your Speciality Dermatology GP – Dr Amy Hermon-Taylor
After qualifying as a doctor from St. George’s Medical School in 2001, I spent 8 years working in hospital medicine –completing a basic surgical training as well as working in Intensive Care, Anaesthetics, Neonatology and Elderly Care Medicine – before deciding to become a GP. I have been working as a GP since 2011 in a variety of Practices in Wandsworth and Lambeth.
My GP training opened my eyes to the wonders of Dermatology and this exciting and diverse speciality has been my passion ever since. I hold the Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology and have extensive experience in minor surgery. After training in cosmetic dermatology in 2010, I joined the team at Medicetics cosmetic skin clinic in Connaught Street where I continue to work, specialising in subtle rejuvenation using botox, dermal fillers, peels, IPL and bespoke medical skincare programmes. I am a member of British College of Aesthetic Medicine.
In all areas of my practice, I aim to combine the highest standards of medical care with empathy, sensitivity and a friendly, non-judgemental approach.
I also volunteer many hours a week for charity, heading up the Patient and Public Involvement Group and fundraising for a research project into Crohn’s Disease, based at King’s College London. I have run two marathons to raise money for this project and am training for a third in October 2015.
