What is Pigmentation and Hyperpigmentation?

HYPERPIGMENTATION & ITS TYPE

Pigmentation is the coloring of a person’s skin. When you’re healthy, your skin color will look normal. If you’re ill or injured, your skin may change color, becoming darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation).

Hyperpigmentation is when your skin color is darker than normal. It happens when you have more melanin, substance in the body that is responsible for your skin color . Pregnancy or Addison’s disease, and other conditions can cause hyperpigmentation. Another major cause is exposure to sunlight, which will darken areas of your skin that are already hyperpigmented.

Cause of Pigmentation and Hyperpigmentation

CAUSE OF HYPERPIGMENATION

The cause of hyperpigmentation depends on the type. The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:

Sun exposure:

The body produces more melanin to protect the skin from prolonged exposure to the sun. This can cause dark spots or patches on the skin called age spots or sunspots.

Skin inflammation

Areas of skin can darken after people have had inflammation of the skin. This can include acne, eczema, lupus, or an injury to the skin. People with darker skin are more likely to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Melasma

Darker patches of skin can form when people experience hormonal changes. This type of hyperpigmentation is common during pregnancy.

Drug reaction: 

Certain drugs can cause side effects which may result in hyperpigmentation. Some examples of such medication are antimalarial drugs and tricyclic antidepressants. The hyper-pigmented areas are in gray rather than in the usual colors. Some topical treatments are also known to cause hyperpigmentation.

The Melasma dilemma: 

Pregnancy brings a lot of joy to you, but also stress in the form of stretch lines, excess fattiness and morning sickness. Amoung these troubles there is also the problem of Melasma; a condition that causes dark patches on the skin as a result of hormonal changes

The infamous inflammation: 

Inflammation of the skin can lead to those areas being darker than others. Skin troubles like lupus, eczema, acne or any injury, can lead to pigmentation after healing. Darker-skinned individuals are more likely to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Genetics

While skin pigmentation is nearly 100 percent heritable, it is hardly a straightforward, Mendelian trait. By working closely with the KhoeSan, a group of populations indigenous to southern Africa, the researchers have found that the genetics of skin pigmentation become progressively complex as populations reside closer to the equator, with an increasing number of genes — known and unknown — involved, each making a smaller overall contribution.

Hormonal changes

Hormonal pigmentation, as the name suggests, is a skin condition that is caused by an imbalance in the hormones and results in the change of the skin color from normal to a patchy and brown. It is more prevalent in African and Asian women as compared to others, although it can affect women of any race. In rare cases, it is also found in men.

Due to hyperpigmentation, the face skin, specifically cheekbones, forehead, and jawline, turns into brown colored patches. Because of its color, it is also known as Melasma which is another word for brown. In most cases this is an active condition that requires long-term attention and care.

  1. he increase in melanin in the epidermal layer of the skin.
  2. Unopposed estrogen in the body of the individual.
  3. A side effect of birth control pill.
  4. Medication about the hormone therapy.
  5. It can occur during pregnancy fading away after that period is over.

Pigmentation is accompanied by hyperpigmentation, and this is when we get dark spots on the skin due to excess exposure to the sun. Hyperpigmentation is a concentrated increase in the melanin of your skin, where the skin patches become darker than the surrounding skin.

Using sunbeds can cause dark, patchy areas of the skin, as sunbeds give high doses of UV light, producing excess melanin, causing pigmentation to appear unevenly on the skin. There are several treatment options depending on the type of pigmentation problem.

Hyperpigmenation Treatment:

CHEMICAL PEELS

Laser treatment

It is safe to use on the face, hands, neck and chest

Prevention is better than a cure, so since pigmentation and hyperpigmentation are largely caused by exposure to the sun, it is highly recommended that you keep your skin safe and prevent any other damage. Wear a broad spectrum SPF daily. If it is very hot and sunny, wear a hat and do not keep your skin in front of the sun for the hottest part of the day.

Laser Peel

LASER PEEL FOR HYPERPIGMENATION

A laser peel (resurfacing) treatment uses targeted beams of light to reduce hyperpigmentation.

There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers are the most intense, and they involve removing layers of your skin. Non-ablative procedures, on the other hand, target the dermis to promote collagen growth and tightening effects.

Ablative lasers are stronger, but they may cause more side effects. Both destroy elements in your skin to ensure that new skin cells grow back tighter and more toned.

What are the leaser doing to pigment to get rid of it?

“Different lasers target either melanin or water in order to penetrate the skin and to heat up the target and destroy them. [This] results in the dark spot getting darker, flaking, and falling off after the treatment. With treatments like Halo and LaseMD, controlled micro injuries to the skin results in collagen remodeling and removal of pigment in the upper layers of the skin. If you look closely at your skin after a fractionated laser treatment, such as Halo or LaseMD, it looks like small pixels, which are called micro-thermal zones. These areas are stimulating collagen production and the removal of pigment, which resurfaces and evens [your overall] pigment. Multiple treatments as well as maintenance are necessary.

Intense Plused Light treatment for pigmentation removal

INTENSE PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is one of my not more favourite beauty treatments but it’s also one that will always be  need to include as a regular skincare treatment to keep my pigmentation in control.

IPL Therapy is a type of non-ablative laser treatment. Also known as a photofacial, IPL therapy stimulates collagen growth within the dermis. It usually requires multiple sessions. IPL is used for overall pigmentation issues, but flat spots especially respond to this treatment. It may also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, spider veins, and enlarged pores.

IPL – Intense Pulsed Light – treatment generates a broad spectrum of light to heat the dermal tissue without harming the outer epidermal layers of the skin. The body’s natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks, visibly reducing skin imperfections. This type of light treatment can fade and reduce the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, thread veins, freckles, rosacea, acne and age pigmentation spots.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS Of IPL?

It works best if you have pale or light brown skin. Talk to your dermatologist if you want to lessen or get rid of:

  • Acne, pimple
  •  Birth marks
  •  Stretch marks
  • Age spots

  • Discolored  of skin

Conclusion
Progress in laser and IPL technology has involved the development of safer and more efficient methods of achieving the effective result on hyperpigmented skin lesions.

The Q-switched lasers with their high peak power and pulse width in the nanosecond range are best suited to treat various epidermal, dermal, and mixed lesions.

Long-pulsed ruby and alexandrite lasers have been shown to be effective in the treatment of Q-switched ruby laser-resistant congenital nevi and other pigmented lesions. Nonablative fractional photothermolysis holds great promise in treatment of both pigmentary variation as well as skin textural abnormalities.

Intense pulsed technology is a highly safe, adaptable and effective modality for the treatment of pigmented lesions.
