How to get rid of Pigmentation


Dealing with pigmentation issues can be difficult, Whether it's age spots, uneven skin tone, sun damage, or hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or hormonal changes. Advancements in skin treatment technology offer results to treat skin pigmentation.


Understanding Skin Pigmentation:

Before delving into the solution, it's important to understand the cause of pigmentation. Melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, can become unevenly distributed due to various factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, inflammation, age, medications, and injury. This leads to the formation of dark spots or patches, making the complexion appear uneven. 


Treatment Options


Microneedling

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has gained popularity in recent years for its ability to address a wide range of skin concerns, including pigmentation issues. Micro needling helps physically ‘break up’ the pigmentation, as well as stimulating the skin's natural healing response helping to improve skin texture 

The controlled injury prompts the skin to renew, shedding damaged and pigmented cells to reveal fresh, evenly toned skin under.

With Dermapen 4 Micro needling we also offer adding a skin peel straight after the needling as a boosted treatment to help lift and lighten pigmentation quicker. 





CryoPen

For larger spots of pigmentation and sun damage CryoPen offers instant results!Cryopen treatment utilizes a precise and controlled freezing technique to target specific areas of pigmentation with pinpoint accuracy. The device emits a stream of pressurized, ultra-cold nitrous oxide gas, effectively freezing the unwanted pigmented cells without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. 

Compared to other methods such as chemical peels or laser treatments, Cryopen offers a faster and more convenient solution for removing pigmentation. The procedure typically takes a few minutes to complete and heals within 7 days. 




Clinical Skincare Products

While in-clinic treatments offer excellent results, pairing them with high-quality clinical skincare products enhances and accelerates the pigmentation correction process. 

I  always tell my clients when investing in treatment for pigmentation homecare is a MUST.    Melanin (Pigment-producing cells) are activated the minute we wake up and expose ourselves to the sunlight or UV.  This does not need to be direct sun exposure from going outside, UV comes through all our windows, through the car and is even produced by lighting in our homes and offices.


The first and most important product to own for pigmentation is Sunscreen! A good quality broad-spectrum sunscreen that is worn every single day is your best defense against UV exposure, preventing more pigment production as well as ensure the visible pigment on the skins surface does not darken. 

Tyrosinase (Melanin) inhibitors

There are many melanin-inhibiting ingredients such as Kojic acid, Retinol, Licorice root, and Glycolic acid.   These ingredients work by blocking the production of the enzyme that forms pigmentation and in turn how much melanin reaches the skin surface. 

Brightening and lightening ingredients

Most good quality treatment products will contain both Tyrosinase inhibitors and brightening ingredients together.  The inhibitors work deep within the skin while the brightening ingredients work on the skin surface by exfoliating and lightening the visible pigmentation. 



 

Combining treatments with clinical skincare products that contain these ingredients creates a powerful solution that addresses pigmentation at its root, providing long-lasting results. By understanding the benefits of these treatments and investing in high-quality skincare products, you can reach your goal of even radiant skin.
