Hyperpigmentation occurs when excess melanin production leaves your skin with darker spots, causing uneven color and dark patches. Occurring on almost any part of the body; including the face, neck, hands, arms and legs; it is unsightly and may detrimentally influence your confidence. However, there are skin treatments available and The Goldman Vein Institute in Jupiter is at hand with solutions to this problem.
The root cause of hyperpigmentation is generally attributed to internal factors like:
It can also be caused by external factors like:
There are various options for treating hyperpigmentation. Included are natural home remedies, such as lemon, raw potato, vitamin E, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, and numerous over the counter products.
If, however, you wish to see lasting results, we suggest you consult with the experts. Treatment options may include:
A gentle physical form of exfoliation. It can be utilized to slough surface skin cells causing a faster cell turnover and quicker fading of darkened skin.
Chemical peels target hyperpigmentation by exfoliating the skin. It can improve acne and stimulates collagen production, which in turn improves skin hydration and smoothes out the appearance of dark marks and even wrinkles.
This is effective for treating rosacea, red veins, skin irregularities and sun/age spots. It leaves you with a visibly clearer and plumped skin.
Laser treatment can be used to successfully treat hyperpigmentation. The laser itself can stimulate pigment cells not effectively destroyed by the treatment, making it slightly riskier. This procedure is therefore best left in the hands of experienced estheticians.
Laser energy is used to successfully treat hyperpigmentation. It addresses all the visible signs of ageing, including brown spots, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, irregular skin texture, acne scars or stretch marks. The laser shines directly into the lower layers of your skin, targets the damaged and old skin cells and stimulates your body’s natural healing process, encouraging new, youthful cell growth.
Hyperpigmentation and age spots are common skin conditions. You will notice darkened skin and irregularly shaped patches on areas such as the face and hands, all the areas frequently exposed to the sun. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may occur after trauma to the skin. Typically, an area of discoloration is left behind after healing, such as the scarring seen in acne sufferers.
The most common types of pigmentation are:
Exfoliating and the use of topical products may help to shorten the time it takes for red marks to fade. But, even if you are exfoliating daily, dark marks won’t fade immediately.
The skin’s renewal cycle lasts 30 days during which new cells push the old ones out. Therefore, hyperpigmentation has the potential to fade in just a month. However, depending on your skin’s condition, hyperpigmentation may take longer to fade.
There are various treatment options, which include natural home remedies and over the counter products. However, if you want lasting results and a rejuvenated skin, consult with the experts about the treatment options, which may include medical peels and laser treatment.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are the dark/red spots that are left after acne lesions heal. They develop when the inflammation inherent in acne lesions causes skin cells to produce more melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its color. An increased amount of melanin makes the skin appear darker.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by:
People with darker skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is the excessive pigmentation or coloring of the skin.
An experienced esthetician can correctly diagnose and recommend clinical treatments which may range from topical creams, IPL treatment to laser treatments.
