Which aesthetic procedures can help us fight hyper-pigmentation?
The pigment due to the color of the skin is called melanin. It is synthesized in the skin cells and serves to protect against ultraviolet rays.
Hyperpigmentations or also called melanoderms represent an increase in pigment melanin in the skin. Among the most common hyperpigmentations are freckles (ephedides) and pigment spots (chloasma, melasma). They may be congenital or the result of various external and internal factors as well as a consequence of taking certain medications. They can be located all over the body and are diffuse (without clear outlines) or limited.
The effects of sun rays are also the cause of hyperpigmentation. Spots due to exposure to ultraviolet light are mainly observed in the exposed parts of the body: hands, face, etc.
In skin prone to pigment staining, the best solution is prevention: appropriate cosmetics (year-round sun protection), avoiding direct sunlight. An even better alternative is the use of sunscreen products, including zinc oxide, which is a powerful barrier especially against UVA rays that penetrate deep into the skin. For pigments of other origins, it is important to indicate the supposed reason for taking the most appropriate treatment.
Combating hyperpigmentation requires persistence and patience. Consult a dermatologist for the best treatment. Treating problematic areas involves the use of creams that contain bleaching ingredients. Such may be various comedones, hydroquinone, zinc, niacin, soybean extract, and the like.
During treatment, a sunscreen product with a factor of less than 30 should be used. At the same time, cosmetics, food and beverages containing vitamin A derivatives should be avoided.
Aesthetic procedures that can help fight pigment stains are chemical peeling, laser therapy, IPL (pulse light therapy), microdilution.
The chemical peel containing salicylic and glycolic acids restores damaged pigmented skin. For its application, certain requirements, such as seasonality and skin phototype, consistent with the concentration of the pilling acid used, must be observed. Deep and deep peels are performed by a dermatologist.
Amelan is a type of peel, the main purpose of which is to treat hyperpigmentation. The bleaching effect is due to the combination of codic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid, retinyl palmitate and the like. It is imperative for you to have a few days restoration period, but then your skin will be with a substantially balanced tan, expressed brilliance and freshness.
Laser therapy has a very good effect on skin tone and is usually more precise as the dermatologist has more control over the intensity of the therapy. Laser therapies include irradiation of affected areas with high energy light. The lightest therapies work on the epidermis of the skin (the surface layer), while the more intense therapies can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin.
Photo-rejuvenation is an extremely effective treatment against many forms of pigmentation. It is performed with an IPL laser and is a non-invasive treatment that uses the light to absorb melanin (dark skin pigment) and hemoglobin (the red color in the blood vessels). It acts like this light turns into heat that damages the target cells without disturbing the surface of the skin. As a result, treated areas darken, sometimes become almost black, then fall independently within 7 to 28 days (depending on the area they are in) or gradually fade.
Micronizing is an effective therapy for the treatment of hyperpigmentation in dark skin tones. This multi-functional treatment creates rejuvenating micro channels in the skin to stimulate balance and normalize cellular function. As the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) are directly attacked, the skin’s skin becomes more radiant in the recovery and correction process. Consult your doctor for a treatment that is consistent with a specific type of pigmentation.
