One of the most common skin conditions that women suffer from is skin pigmentation, also known as skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation. This condition is characterized by appearance of dark spots or patches, mostly on face. However, skin discoloration can occur on any part of body that is excessively exposed to sunlight. Are you also battling dark spots? Stop looking here and there; you have landed in the right place. We have some really effective pigmentation treatments for you to help you get rid of all sorts of skin discoloration issues.
Chemical peels comprise probably the safest solution for mild to moderate dark spots affecting only top most layer of skin. Chemical peeling involves applying a high-potency chemical to the affected areas to remove the top layer of skin. Treated skin will gradually peel off, revealing fresh skin underneath, free of freckles and blemishes.
Microdermabrasion is a bit abrasive skin whitening treatment that uses aluminum oxide crystals to buff away pigmented skin. New skin free of dark spots appears within 7 to 14 days. Patients prefer Microdermabrasion because it is a lunch hour procedure that hardly takes 25 to 30 minutes for its completion and does not involve any downtime. The patient can resume routine tasks immediately after the procedure.
Laser Skin Resurfacing:
Laser skin resurfacing has shown tremendous results when used for treating dark spots on skin caused by melasma, sun exposure, aging or hormonal changes. Lasers help target not only superficial pigmentation but also in the deeper layers of skin as well, without damaging the top layers. Single session of laser skin resurfacing may not be enough to deliver best results. You may need 4 to 6 sessions to get desired results.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy:
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) is probably the most effective skin whitening treatment for dark spots. This procedure is similar to laser skin resurfacing but the light used for skin resurfacing is not laser. The procedure uses pulsating beams of a specific light (infrared rays mostly) to treat even out skin tone. Accumulated melanin underneath epidermis disperses after absorbing heat energy from these pulsating beams of light. Besides treating skin pigmentation, Thermage effect also accelerates collagen production which helps improve skin texture as well.
