5 ways to get rid of pigments permanently
Pigments are the dark patches of skin due to excess melanin production. These are produced by acne scars and sun damage. This is a common skin problem that can be removed by Pico laser treatment.
Factors that cause pigmentation
- Sun exposure
Inflammation is acne, eczema, cuts and scratches that send the pigment production cells at high speed by producing a dark spot after it is healed.
The UV rays from the sun increase the production of melanin, which helps to protect the skin from damage. The excess melanin content makes your skin appear dark.
This commonly occurs for women with fluctuating hormone levels during pregnancy, which causes brown patches on their face. This is caused by increased hormone changes and with a combination of sun exposure.
The adrenal gland disorder can also increase melanin production. Some drugs, namely antibodies, non-steroidal drugs, and anti-malaria drugs, increase the risk of pigmentation. Some drugs can also cause temporary pigmentation and dark spots.
The best way to treat pigmentation
- Pigmentation laser treatment
- Chemical peels for pigmentation
- Intense pulsed light
Pigmentation laser treatment
This is a laser therapy used to treat scars and acne. The laser energy reaches the skin layer and removes the pigment particles. Pico laser treatment uses a micro lens array that produces laser energy as a micro beam in a pattern on the skin to achieve micro injuries on the skin. This makes your skin naturally heal and increases the collagen and elastin production in the skin without any damage to the skin. These help to reduce acne, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Chemical peels for pigmentation
In this treatment method, the peel is applied on the face and helps to remove the outermost skin layer. This helps the new skill cells regenerate healthier and shinier. This makes you younger, fresher, and brighter. The peel is used with different chemical composites depending on the pigment depth to remove the pigmentation.
Intense pulsed light
Here, a broad spectrum of light is used to target the melanin with the handheld flashgun. In this method, two processes are done: where the light energy travels directly into the skin and the dermis layer breaks the melanin particles in the skin. Before starting this process, the doctor will apply a cool gel on your face to get ready for the treatment. The treatment session will last for 30 minutes normally.
