Pigmentation Treatment


Pigmentation can pose a big problem for many people and they always find ways to get rid of it or reduce the severity of discoloration through many medical or home-made remedies. Listed below are the frequently asked questions regarding pigmentation, the causes, and treatments, etc.

What is a chemical peel?

This is a technique used that helps smoothen and improve the texture of the skin through the application of a chemical solution. This chemical intends to remove the outer most layers of the skin, making the new skin grow back making your facial appearance more rejuvenated and fresh with improved skin. The skin will exfoliate itself and eventually peel off. Using to treat skin problems as well as for beautification purposes, chemical peels can be done along with other cosmetic procedures.

What is pigmentation?

Simply, pigmentation means coloring. This coloring disorder tends to affect the skin’s color. There are mainly two types of pigmentation.

  • Hyperpigmentation – this is when a certain patch of skin is darker than the area that surrounds it due to the affected area producing more melanin.
  • Hypopigmentation – the skin is lighter than the surrounding area due to the affected area producing too little melanin.

  • Skin pigmentation conditions treated

  • Vitiligo - It is accompanied by patches of light skin.
  • Age spots also called liver spots or sun spots
  • Melasma also is known as chloasma
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that occurs after an inflammatory skin condition such as acne or eczema
  • Procedure For pigmentation

    There are a variety of home remedies that can be done to improve the effect of skin pigmentation such as using face packs, orange paste face masks, and Aloe Vera. There are other medically approved and clinically tested cosmetic procedures for those who suffer from serious cases of skin pigmentation.

  • Chemical Peels – this is used to treat hyperpigmentation
  • Laser therapy- laser treatments are considered by professionals as one of the most advanced skin care treatments available that help to remove age spots, sunspots, and freckles.
  • Skin needling – this treatment is mostly done on individuals with dark skin colors

  • How Pigmentation caused

    Melanin in our bodies gives our skin its color. Depending on the amount of melanin that is created within you, your skin tone will differ from light to dark normally. Specific cells in the skin called melanocytes make melanin and when these cells are unhealthy or damaged it affects the production process of melanin in our bodies. Either too much or too little melanin will cause skin pigmentation disorders making the skin look lighter, darker, blotchy or discolored. While some pigmentation disorders affect only small patches of skin others can spread over to the entire body. Some of the causes include

  • Genetics
  • Suns exposure – to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, the body produces more melanin. Therefore, when being exposed to the sun too much dark spots can occur.
  • Hormones – due to hormonal changes people can experience darker patches of skin.
  • Skin Inflammation – after acne, eczema or lupus or any time of skin injury the affected area can turn dark.
  • Medication reactions – sometimes if certain medicines do not agree with you patches of the skin may turn grey or dark in color. Usually, antimalarial drugs and certain anti-depressants cause hyperpigmentation.

  • How the treatment works

  • Chemical peels – chemical peels will even out the overall skin tone by using strong acids which removes the epidermis. When the dead skin cells are removed, a new layer of skin will be produced which is much fresher and rejuvenated.
  • Laser peel – experts use targeted beams of light to treat skin pigmentation disorders. The energy transferred from the light treats the targeted skin tissue. There are two types of laser peel treatment
  • Ablative treatment which removes layers of the skin. This treatment is very strong.
  • Nonablative which promotes collagen growth while treating the discoloration

  • What is the cost of pigmentation treatment

    If you follow homemade do it yourself remedies, for you pigmentation to reduce it will not cost you anything. However, most of the time these are ineffective to tackle serious cases of hyperpigmentation or other. Therefore, medical assistance from a clinic is better sought. The cost of the treatment will depend on numerous factors such as the type of skin condition and the suitable treatment procedure. For example, laser treatment could be a little bit pricey per session it is highly effective and guarantees that the darkened spots will not return. At Skinalaya Skin Clinic, we offer safe and clinically tested treatments that are performed by specialists in dermatology.
