Many people assume that skin troubles related to pigmentation like Melasma, dark spots, freckles resolve by themselves over time. Sadly, that is not the case and only appropriate professional treatments can provide great results. In over 90% of skin pigmentation cases, treatment is necessary to treat the concerned area and to remove pigmented spots from the face permanently. If you are someone who suffers from an uneven skin tone and are searching for treatments that can resolve your issues quickly, this article is going to be a great read for you.

The Cause of Pigmentation

Melanin is largely responsible for providing colour to our skin. Produced by a type of special skin cells,  the production of melanin and its functioning can become impacted by hormonal imbalances, genetics, sun exposure and more. This is how dark spots start appearing on your face. The pigmentation begins to cluster in one area of your skin, therefore becoming a dark spot. These can become further aggravated if you do not take care of your skin, especially protect it from the Sun’s rays.

The different types of hyperpigmentation are:

  • Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
  • Freckles
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Post-acne Skin Pigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Hori’ Naevus

Options To Help You Get Rid Of Hyper Pigmentation

Let’s first discuss treatments that you can try for skin pigmentation. These require no procedures but simple applications.

Anti-pigmentation Creams

Doctors and professionals can prescribe creams for hyper-pigmentation that contain active ingredients. These components are capable of lowering melanin in your body. Applying these creams can help treat skin pigmentation and skin disorders like melasma. However, it is important to remember that skin creams can have adverse effects on your skin and might not suit everyone. So it is best to notify your skin doctor trying anything new.

Sunscreen & Sun Protection

Experts swear by the use of sunscreen and also emphasise that one should not face daylight without a broad-spectrum sunscreen, even if you are indoors. If you don’t perform this step, even the best of the best treatments will act as a waste of time for you.

Let’s now discuss how procedures performed in a skincare clinic can benefit people with hyper-pigmentation:

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a treatment that involves removing the outermost layer of the skin. The cells affected are stimulated so that the skin has a brighter, fresher and younger glow. However, if the intensity of the peel is low, the results can be mediocre.

Intense Pulsed Light

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is another method used to treat hyperpigmentation. IPL uses broad-spectrum light through a handheld flashgun that targets melanin. The light from the handheld flashgun travels directly to the superficial and dermis layer of the skin to target the melanin.

Pigmentation Treatment – Laser

If all fails, this method will give you results that you have been waiting for. This treatment is the best for hyperpigmentation, scars, acne and more. There are many brands and technology available in the market but the idea is to use short pulses of high laser that can penetrate different layers of the skin.
