Have you been feeling anxious and lacking self confidence lately due to discolouration and uneven skin tone? Some pigmentation may not be as obvious while others present a clear change in your skin tone and even heavy make up is unable to cover it up. Do you feel frustrated and not sure where to start? How pigmentation can be removed? And can you prevent it in the first place?
How pigmentation starts?
Pigmentation forms when too much melanin (natural pigment in your skin) is triggered and deposited unevenly. This increase could be develop for a number reasons. For example as a result of too much sun exposure, hormonal changes, age, injuries to your skin or inflammation.
How pigmentation can be removed?
- Laser photofacial skin rejuvenation improves skin tone and texture. The treatment has minimal downtime. It’s suitable for a range of conditions including sun damage, wide and localised areas of discolouration. And last but not least ageing skin.
- Laser pigmentation removal is a targeted laser treatment. The main goal of the treatment is to remove superficial and deeper pigmentation. As well as sun damaged areas on the face, forehead, shoulders and arms.
- Skin peels or resurfacers help to improve skin texture. They’re suitable for a range of conditions. These conditions include pigmentation . In addition they’re available in different strengths with different downtimes according to your skin condition
- Dermapen microneedling is for all skin shades, but is a particularly advantageous solution for dark skin tones, where laser treatments may not be the safest option due to further pigmentation risks.
Can you prevent pigmentation?
Have you been overindulging on the sun without protection or in fact never used to apply sun screen to your skin unless on holiday? In some cases pigmentation could be easy to prevent by simply minimising sun/ sun bed exposure. And of course with the daily use of sun protection. Daily as in 365 days of the year, regardless if it’s winter or summer.
Did you know that acne scarring can cause inflammation that can develop into pigmentation? That’s right. To prevent discolouration you must treat acne as soon as it appears and ensure you don’t squeeze your spots, that could leave you with pigmented marks and scarring.
Hormonal discolouration is the hardest to prevent and treat for that matter, but still not impossible.
