Hyperpigmentation is becoming a common skin problem that is caused due to pollution, excessive exposure to harmful UV rays, chemical make-up products, vitamin deficiency, injury, trauma, and acne. The color of the skin is determined by the melanin pigment, and sometimes hormonal imbalance, exposure to certain chemicals can affect the melanin production, thus affecting the skin tone, texture and color. When the melanin content increases due to any of the aforementioned reasons, the skin tone becomes darker, and the condition is known as hyperpigmentation.
A very common example of a hyperpigmentation condition is Melasma, which is generally characterized by tan or brown patches, most commonly appearing on the face, making the skin look darker than the natural complexion of the individual. Using products like sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher or prescription creams can one to help curb the problem to some extent and provide a subtle effect at best. For those looking for more immediate and longer-lasting results, Dr. Rasya Dixit, an experienced cosmetic dermatologist in Koramangala, with over 10 years of experience, provides the best-customized skin care treatments for every individuals’ need.
While a lot of widely available products like lotions and creams claim to provide results, they require regular and prolonged use, and the result is still only meagrely satisfying. Chemical peels are a better alternative and are classified into three subtypes, namely superficial, medium, and deep; depending on the part of the skin layer, they are absorbed and work. While superficial peels work on the upper layer of the epidermis to provide superficial texture and glow and help improve on acne, medium peels like TCA and Phenol peels can help manage to melasma and pigmentary conditions as well as acne scars.
Laser toning is another great alternative to help with skin hyperpigmentation problems and is also suitable for all skin types due to the low energy Q switched Nd-YAG laser used in the procedure. The treatment is also safe as the laser only targets the pigment and concern area and does not cause any damage to the surrounding skin tissues. The toning can be performed with both lasers alone and in combination with a carbon micro-suspension, providing instant, significant improvement from the very first session.
The laser is passed over the skin, warming and subsequently driving the carbon particles into the pores, followed by another pass of laser that vaporizes the carbon particles, rejuvenating the skin and tightening the pores. A final pass of the laser then tightens the skin and restores the skin’s youthful glow and texture. The process also helps to correct mild scars, freckles and provides anti-aging benefits as it diminishes the appearance of fine lines and mild folds. The procedure improves skin color, tone, open pores, texture as well as acne and oiliness and can also be used for sensitive areas like underarms and inner thighs.
