What is Pigmentation?
The colour of your skin is referred to as pigmentation while changes in the colour of your skin are caused by skin pigmentation disorders. Melanin is a pigment that is produced by skin cells and handles the colour of your skin and hyperpigmentation is a skin condition in which your skin becomes darker.
What Causes Pigmentation?
An increase in melanin causes hyperpigmentation. Melanin is a pigment found in our skin, hair, and eyes that gives them their colour. Sun exposure, hormonal influences, ageing, and even skin injuries or inflammation are just a few of the variables that might cause an increase in melanin production, causing pigmentation.
What Kind of Treatments can be Done to Help Pigmentation?
Treatment for pigmentation varies from one person to another, and it’s always best to have a consultation with either your therapist or your Dermatologist. Here are the 5 best treatments for pigmentation, in our opinion:
1. Lamelle Beta Pigment Balancing Chemical Peel: This beta chemical peel series is intended to cause skin peeling and is intended for the treatment of pigmentation anomalies such as sun pigmentation, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Furthermore, the beta peel series is highly efficient in the treatment of acne and congested skin. The Beta chemical peel range is a gentle chemical exfoliation with concentrations ranging from 15% to 20%. The disparities in percentages reflected the penetration depth.
2. Pearl Fractional Laser: Firstly, it’s important to know what Pear Fractional Laser is. It is a deep fractional laser that is used to treat sun-damaged or ageing skin on the entire face. Those with light to medium skin tones and skin flaws such as acne scars are ideal candidates for Pearl Fractional therapy. On the face, neck, and other regions of the body, this thorough treatment can considerably minimise the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and pigment changes. They can be applied to delicate parts of the face, such as the lines around the lips, eyes, and even the eyelids, or to the entire face.
3. Limelight: This is a fourth-generation IPL device with program choice for specific issues like red or brown discolouration. The Limelight is a class 4 medical light system that is not comparable to a low-cost IPL system. An extremely popular all in one facial procedure, Limelight is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that delivers a non-invasive light treatment to reverse unwanted skin pigmentation.
4. Dermapen: Dermapen is a skin micro-needling procedure with minimal downtime that improves the appearance of scars, acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation, and rejuvenates the skin by promoting screeds healing and natural collagen formation. The body will continue to produce collagen even after the punctures have completely subsided, to keep it healthy and glowing.
The skin expands and plumps because of the treatment, minimising the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
5. TCA Chemical Peel (trichloroacetic acid): A TCA chemical peel removes dead skin cells while also encouraging the growth of new ones. TCA at a concentration of 10–15% can be used to treat light hyperpigmentation. TCA at a higher dosage of 20–25 percent may be needed for deeper-seated dark spots. Due to it penetrating deeper than other peels, this type of peel is ideal for deeper deposits of melanin aka pigmentation.
