One of the most common hyperpigmentation issues are freckles. These are round, brown and flat in appearance and can be caused by a number of factors including too much exposure to the sun, aging and hormonal imbalance amongst other factors.
Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options that can be brought to use to get rid of freckles and blemishes. These treatments are noninvasive and work quite effectively. In the following lines, we shall learn more about them.
These are the first line of defense against most skin problems. Different kinds of topical creams are available that be applied to the affected area to correct the problem. They work on inhibiting the production of melanin to correct the problem. Be sure to consult a doctor to ensure that you get a cream that works well for you. These creams need to be applied for a while to achieve the desired outcome.
Laser treatment works by breaking down the pigmentation in the skin. It targets the darker matter buildup, the melanin, in the skin. As the pigmentation breaks down, the body can easily get rid of it. Within a few sessions, the laser treatments can completely get rid of the freckles and blemishes (علاج الكلف). The treatment has almost no side effects and there is no downtime associated with it. To reduce any sensation of pain, topical anesthetics or cooling gel may be applied prior to the start of the treatment.
These are acidic solutions available in different strengths that resurface the top layer of the skin. They work by removing the top layer of the skin which starts the healing process and a new top layer of the skin replaces the removed damaged top layer. The new skin that forms as a result has lesser appearance of freckles. Within a few peels, the skin should be free from any effects of the blemishes.
It is important that the peels are applied by a professional since an amateur job can leave you with a burnt skin. Only a professional can determine strengths required as per your individual needs.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
IPL uses a broad spectrum light in specific wavelengths in order to target the melanin in the affected area. Since the wavelengths are set for darker matter, the skin nearby mostly remains unaffected. The light heats up the pigmentation buildup and breaks it down, allowing the body to remove it without much trouble.
To reduce any sensation of pain, topical anesthetics may be applied prior to the treatment. Side effects are mild and temporary and there is no downtime with the treatment which makes it extremely useful. Like other treatments, it needs to be repeated a few times to achieve the desired outcome.
