Pigmentation is a discoloration of the skin. Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which your skin darkens. This could affect specific areas of your skin or even your entire body. Viva Aesthetic Clinic, Mumbai offers Skin Pigmentation Treatment in Mumbai. Book your appointment for consultation.
Freckles are one of the most common types of pigmentation. Others are solar lentigines, also known as sun spots, melasma, which occurs deeper in the dermis of the skin, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can be caused by acne, burns, or friction.
Tanning is the process of increasing melanin (skin pigment) caused by exposure to sunlight. This is the body’s natural method of protecting the skin from UV rays.
Areas prone to tan are Face, Arms, Hands, Legs, Feet, Back, Neck.
Dark spots on the skin, also known as hyperpigmentation, develop when certain areas of the skin produce more melanin than usual. Melanin is responsible for the colour of the eyes, skin, and hair.
Melasma is a common skin condition. The condition causes dark, discoloured patches on skin. The most common pattern involves the forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip, and chin.
Advanced treatment options for pigmentation correction include:
Lightening Creams: Certain ingredients aid in the reduction of skin pigmentation. These creams are most effective for melasma and flat spots. They are also useful for removing discoloured patches. It is best to use lightening creams only after consulting with a skin expert.
Retinoids: The small molecules penetrate the skin and treat the pigmentation problem. Safe for all skin tones.
AHA and BHA: AHA stands for alpha hydroxy acid. AHAs are water-soluble acids and they help peel away the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. After use, you’ll likely notice that your skin is smoother to the touch.
BHA stands for beta hydroxy acid. BHAs are oil-soluble. Unlike AHAs, BHAs can get deeper into the pores to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum.
Chemical Peel Treatment: Chemical peeling in India is one of the most preferred treatments for correcting skin tone and pigmentation. This treatment involves applying a chemical solution that helps peel off the dead skin layers. This procedure can help remove blemishes, reducing pigmentation, fixing acne problems and giving skin a better and improved texture than before.
It can give your skin a completely new and glowing look. Chemical Peels treatment is most popular in women/men who are soon going to get married or have some big event coming up. As much as it makes your skin look radiant, this treatment is comparatively quicker than other skin treatments and the results last longer as well.
Microneedling Treatment: By enhancing the skin’s natural healing process, skin resurfacing treatment removes imperfections and helps restore a smooth, bright tone. The microneedles cause non-visible micro-injuries in the skin, which promote collagen and elastin production. It treats acne, surgical scars, acne scars, enlarged open pores, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation, rough patches, and other skin conditions. Microneedling can be used to treat scarring in all skin types, and there is little risk of it making dark spots worse. Because it can also lighten the skin, microneedling can be a safe and effective way to treat scar hyperpigmentation, as long as you don’t have sensitive skin that scars easily.
Laser Peel Pigmentation Treatment: The pigmentation is targeted by the laser beam of light. Both ablative and non-ablative lasers stimulate collagen production, promote skin tightening, and remove damaged skin layers. The wavelength of laser light allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin, resulting in amazing results. It gets rid of unwanted pigmentation like freckles, melasma, age spots, sun spots, and other pigmentation issues. The laser is absorbed by the dark pigmented cells, which protects and does not harm the surrounding normal skin.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy: Sun damage, age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, texture issues, and spider veins are all treated. It improves skin complexion by removing skin pigmentation. IPL also stimulates collagen production and aids in the restoration of overall skin radiance.
Laser Toning: To cause controlled thermal injury, a short, concentrated beam of light is penetrated into the target layer of the skin. This stimulates the production of elastin and collagen while also breaking down the dark pigment that causes pigmentation. It treats birthmarks, dark spots, freckles, rosacea, open pores, fine lines, acne scars, melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, dark under-eye circles, age spots, and a variety of other skin conditions. Long-lasting results, as well as smoothing and rejuvenating the skin.
Microdermabrasion: It exfoliates the skin by spraying it with fine “abrasive particles.” The vacuum process aids in the removal of exfoliated skin. This treatment is suitable for all skin types, and has a lower risk of side effects. It lightens the skin tone, removes pigmentation, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and lightens acne scars.
Dermabrasion: This treatment aids in the removal of the epidermis and the correction of sun damage, age spots, acne scars, and chickenpox scars. By removing enough layers of skin, the procedure removes visible concerns and promotes new cell growth.
To keep the skin free of infection after treatment, it must be protected from the sun, dust, and pollution, and an antibiotic must be applied. It is essential to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF value because it protects the skin from both UV-A and UV-B damage. It is also necessary to protect the skin from sun exposure in order to prevent the worsening of pigmentation.
