How We Treat Hyperpigmentation
Treatment options for hyperpigmentation vary depending on the cause and severity of the condition. Treatment can vary from medical grade topical substance, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser therapy, and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can also help improve hyperpigmentation. Once we evaluate your skin condition we can recommend the most suitable treatment approach for you.
Advanced Hyperpigmentation Treatment, Which One?
These involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to “blister” and eventually peel off, revealing fresh, less pigmented skin beneath. The chemicals used also promote new skin growth. There are various types of peels ranging from superficial to deep peels, depending on the severity of hyperpigmentation.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin using very fine needles. This triggers the body’s wound healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production, and can help to break up pigment and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Laser therapy, such as fractional laser resurfacing, uses targeted beams of light to treat hyperpigmentation. The laser light is absorbed by the pigmented areas, which breaks up the melanin clusters and triggers the body’s natural healing process. The result is a more even skin tone once the skin has healed.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL):
IPL therapy is similar to laser treatment, but it uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths instead of a single wavelength like a laser. The light energy is converted into heat, which destroys the excess melanin.
This is a more intense version of microdermabrasion that removes deeper layers of the skin and is often reserved for more severe cases of hyperpigmentation.
This is a mechanical exfoliation procedure that gently removes the top layer of the skin. This process stimulates new skin growth and can help lighten areas of hyperpigmentation.
What Does It Mean Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition characterized by the darkening or increased pigmentation of certain areas of the skin. It occurs when an excess amount of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, is produced in certain areas. This can result in patches, spots, or areas of the skin appearing darker than the surrounding skin.
Hyperpigmentation, Dark spots, Uneven skin tone, Melasma, Sun spots, Age spots, Skin brightening or Lightening, Skin discolouration, Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)
Who is More Sensitive to Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation can affect individuals of any ethnicity, but it is more prevalent among individuals with darker skin tones due to their increased melanin production.
What are the Types and Causes of Hyperpigmentation?
These are dark spots that develop due to prolonged sun exposure. They commonly appear on areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun. Another form of hyperpigmentation could be grayish-brown patches which are most likely melasma which is often associated with hormonal changes. PIH, Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of inflammation or injury to the skin, such as acne, eczema, burns, or cuts. It leads to dark spots or patches in the affected area once the inflammation or injury has healed.
Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Can appear anywhere on the body though most commonly found on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and above the upper lip. It can also appear on the neck and forearms.
The Cause of Melasma? The exact cause of melasma remains unknown, but several factors can contribute to its development:
Sun exposure: Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun can increase melanin production, making existing melasma more pronounced.
Hormonal changes: Melasma can occur during pregnancy or when taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy, leading some to refer to it as the “mask of pregnancy.”
Certain skin care products: If they irritate the skin, they can worsen melasma.
Sun Spots, Age Spots, Dark Spots
Sun spots, often referred to as age spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines, are flat, brown, gray, or black spots on the skin that usually occur in areas exposed to the sun. They are the result of an excess production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin, hair, and eye color. Sun spots are flat and can range in size from a small freckle to more than a centimeter across. They usually have a clearly defined edge and can cluster together, making them appear larger.
Location? These spots often develop on areas most exposed to the sun, such as the face, back of the hands, forearms, forehead, chest, and shoulders.
The Cause of Sun Spots?
Sun Exposure: Chronic exposure to the sun or frequent use of tanning beds can increase the chance of developing sun spots due to the UV rays stimulating the production of melanin.
Aging: as people age, their skin is more susceptible to developing sun spots, which is why they are sometimes referred to as age spots.
Hyperpigmentation can also be caused by certain medications, such as antimalarial drugs and some antibiotics, as well as underlying medical conditions.
PIH – Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) refers to the development of dark patches or spots on the skin that arise after an inflammatory skin condition or injury has started healing. Essentially, it is a skin reaction where increased melanin production occurs in response to inflammation. PIH presents as flat spots of discoloration. These can range in color from pink to red, brown, or black, depending on the individual’s skin tone and the depth of the pigmentation.
Causes: PIH can occur as a result of various skin conditions and external injuries, including: Acne, eczema, psoriasis, insect bites, cuts and burns and other.
PHI or PIE
It’s essential to differentiate PIH from post-inflammatory erythema (PIE), which appears as pink or red discoloration after an acne lesion has healed, especially in lighter skin tones. PIE is caused by dilated or damaged blood vessels under the skin, not by melanin as in PIH.
