Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation Treatment in Delhi

Pigmentation is a common concern in people with Asian Skin. Pigment is the reason for our skin color. Melanin is the pigment responsible for our color. 

Types of Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation – Increase in the amount of Pigmentation leading to appearance of a darker tone  or areas than our normal color . This is usually the result of excess production of Melanin.                 

This can happen in: 

  • Uneven Skin Tone / Sun Tan
  • Freckles
  • Melasma

Hypopigmentation – There is a decreased amount of Pigmentation or Melanin production leading to lighter areas or tone than the normal skin. 

                                                                                 

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by various causes :

  1. Excess Melanin Production – cause of Hyperpigmentation is an excess melanin production . Melanin is a pigment that gives skin its color. It’s produced by skin cells called melanocytes.
  2. Medication –  Certain medications can cause Hyperpigmentation like pain killers, antimalarials, tetracycline antibiotics, anti cancer drugs, psychiatric drugs , antimalarial etc.
  3. Pregnancy – Changes in hormonal levels can affect melanin production and can cause increased areas of Pigmentation in face, groin, breast etc. Usually these changes reverse after pregnancy but sometimes they can persist longer and require treatments.
  4. Addison’s Disease – A rare endocrine disease can produce Hyperpigmentation in areas of sun exposure such as face, neck, hands etc.
  5. Excessive Sun Exposure – This definitely remains one of the leading causes of Pigmentation . The sun rays contain ultraviolet rays that cause damage to the cells creating free radicals and hereby stimulating the pigment cells.
  6. Excessive use of Devices – Newer research implicates the blue light emanating from the devices like mobile phones, laptops cause Pigmentation by stimulating the Melanin cells.
