Skin pigmentation has many causes, but the end result is that the skin is left blemished and depending on how bad it is, can cause the sufferer to have low self esteem and can affect their social life. Therefore it is essential to get it treated so that your skin looks clearer and smoother, and there are different treatment options available depending on your condition.
There are different classes of skin pigmentation:
- Melasma or hormonal
- Sunspots and liver spots
- Sun damage
It is necessary to find out what type of condition you have before skin pigmentation treatment can be given. If the diagnosis is incorrect treatment can make the skin problem even worse. In addition, your skin colour, the location of the pigmentation and your available downtime all play a part in deciding on the right kind of treatment. Once the right treatment has been chosen the results will be well worthwhile.
Here are just some of the treatments:
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
This laser treatment is ideal for many pigmentation conditions on fair skin, but should never be used on darker skin types or on melasma pigmentation as it can make the condition worse.
Different to IPL, there are various types of laser treatment that can be used on skin pigmentation, sunspots and freckles. The difference in lasers is the intensity and size of the treatment area; some treat a wide area while others are concentrated on a small area. They can be used in conjunction with chemical peels to treat light skin with moderate damage or fine wrinkles. Lasers resurface the skin, encouraging the growth of collagen.
