Combining Pigment-Reducing Lasers To Destroy Stubborn Pigmentation
Skin pigmentation 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.
Skin 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 types of pigmentations. Every person with pigmentation condition could be suffering from one or more types of pigmentation. This means a proper, thorough consultation with the doctor is necessary to determine what treatment options are suitable for you.
What Causes Hyperpigmetation?
There are several factors that can cause hyperpigmentation. Some common causes are:
Sun exposure Sun exposure 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, prolonged exposure to the sun may cause these pigments (such as age spots, melanoma, and post-inflammatory pigmentation) to become 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 is mainly melasma or chloasma. Melasma affects a lot of pregnant women due to the hormonal fluctuations 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 the development of pigmentation on the skin.
Certain 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 hyperpigmentation This occurs when the skin is injured and has healed but it is left darkened and discoloured after the wound has healed.
