Skin is the most sensitive and delicate part of the body, perfect and glowing skin always adds to your beauty.
Pigmentation means color, and skin pigmentation disorder means a change in skin color.
Several factors cause discoloration of the skin, and this discoloration is generally known as hyperpigmentation. While hyperpigmentation does not pose a severe threat to our health, it makes our appearance unattractive, especially facial pigmentation. Fortunately, we have many effective treatments available for eliminating skin pigmentation. These include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, skin resurfacing procedures, and laser treatments. However, before finalizing a treatment, it is essential to consult a dermatologist. Only an experienced dermatologist can recommend the best Pigmentation Treatment in Dubai.

What are the causes of Skin pigmentation?
Skin pigmentation is caused by either an increase or decrease in melanin production. Melanin production may get disturbed for several reasons, including pregnancy and excessive sun exposure. Several other causes may include:
- Hormonal disorders
- Excessive exposure to the sun
- Medications, such as anti-depressants
- High concentration of Iron in blood.
- Other skin irritations may also lead to skin pigmentation.
- Exposure to Radiation
Who is the ideal candidate?
You are a candidate for Skin Pigmentation Removal Dubai if you have:
- Melasma – a condition characterized by dark brown patches on the face that commonly occurs during pregnancy.
- Freckles – a hyperpigmentation problem in which dark-colored spots are formed on the skin due to melanin clusters. Typically, excessive exposure to the UV rays of the sun causes freckles and blemishes.
- Albinism – a pigmentation issue in which white or pink-colored patches appear on the skin. Generally, this condition is hereditary, but albinism sometimes occurs due to a lack of melanin in the skin.
- Vitiligo – a hypo-pigmentation problem in which white spots appear on the skin. Generally, the loss of melanocytes – body cells responsible for producing melanin – causes it.
Diagnosis of Skin pigmentation
To diagnose skin pigmentation, you need to consult an expert dermatologist. The dermatologist will examine your skin to determine if you have skin pigmentation or another skin condition.
You may also look for signs of skin pigmentation at home. If you notice dark-brown spots of different sizes appearing on your body, it may be a sign that you have skin pigmentation.
Our dermatologists at Laser Skin Care Clinic examine the patient’s skin, and if they are diagnosed with skin pigmentation, the most appropriate treatment is suggested to get rid of the problem.
Laser Treatment for Pigmentation
Laser treatment is the most effective and safe procedure for eliminating pigmentation. Generally, a specialist uses a laser machine for this treatment.
During this treatment, pigmentation is treated by targeting the damaged part of the skin without affecting the adjacent skin. The laser removes the pigment and promotes collagen production to improve skin tone.
The number of sessions required to get rid of skin pigmentation depends on your condition and the results you desire to achieve from the procedure. For some patients, a single session could be sufficient, while some may need several sessions.
Laser treatment can treat pigmentation on all body parts.
