Combination Laser Treatments For Effective Pigmentation Removal in Singapore
Pigmentation of the skin is a condition that causes the skin to darken significantly compared to the surrounding areas. It can appear in small patches on any part of the body and it can cover large areas.
Pigmentation occurs when more melanin is produced in certain areas on the skin. They often result in flat, darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in colour and they can vary in shapes and sizes.
There are several factors that can cause hyperpigmentation. Some common causes are:
SUN EXPOSURE This remains the leading cause of hyperpigmentation. Pigments on the skin are triggered by the production of melanin induced by the UV rays from the sun. Although melanin aids in shielding you from the sun, excessive sun exposure can cause melanin to produce dark pigments in some areas. When dark spots have developed, further sun exposure may lead these pigments such as age spots, melanoma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation even darker.
HORMONES This is more relevant to women as female sex hormones can stimulate the overproduction of melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun. Pigmentation that is developed due to female sex hormones are mainly melasma or chloasma. Melasma affects a lot of pregnant women as female sec hormones fluctuates greatly during pregnancy.
MEDICATION Some medication may also encourage the development of pigmentation. Some hormone treatment drugs, chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, anti-seizure drugs may lead to development of pigmentation on the skin.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS Hyperpigmenation could also be symptomatic of certain underlying issues such as autoimmune diseases and gastrointestinal diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and metabolic disorders.
POST-INFLAMMATORY PIGMENTATION This occurs when the skin is injured and the skin has healed but the skin is left darkened and discoloured after the wound has healed.
