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.
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:
Hypopigmentation – There is a decreased amount of Pigmentation or Melanin production leading to lighter areas or tone than the normal skin.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by various causes :
appear as spots on sun exposed areas
area of Hyperpigmentation.

Lightening creams are over the counter (OTC) treatments that work with select ingredients to help decrease Pigmentation. Many of the creams are available in stronger prescription forms .They’re usually applied once or twice a day to help lighten the skin over time. Common ingredients found in OTC lightening products - Hydroquinone Licorice extract Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide).
Derived from vitamin A ,Retinoids are among some of the oldest OTC skincare ingredients used. Their small molecular structure allows them to penetrate deep into the skin and treat the layers below your epidermis .
Face acids or skin acids work by exfoliating or shedding the top layer of skin . Whenever you exfoliate your skin, new cells emerge to take the place of the old ones. The process helps even out your skin tone and make it smoother. Many face acids are available OTC at beauty stores and drug stores. Popular options include: Glycolic acid. Salicylic acid. Mandelic acid.
A chemical peel uses acids at stronger concentrations to treat the desired area of skin. They reduce the appearance of Hyperpigmentation by acting on the epidermis. Deeper versions may also penetrate the middle layer of your skin (dermis)to produce more dramatic results. Although many chemical peels are available OTC ,you might consider getting a professional grade peel at your dermatologist’s office. These are more powerful and they yield quick results.
IPL is not a Laser but is a type of Light commonly used in Photofacial. It breaks down melanin pigment & stimulates collagen within the dermis. It usually requires multiple sessions to give results.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma uses the power of your growth factors present in the blood to give you not only a glowing skin but works well for the Hyperpigmentation also. The best results are seen after at least 3 sessions of PRP.
Laser Treatment for Pigmentation uses targeted beams of light to reduce Hyperpigmentation . There are 2 types of Lasers: Ablative – These Lasers are most intense & work by removing layers of skin . Non ablative - These Lasers target the dermis to promote collagen growth and Tightening effects. These are very widely used and give excellent results to treat Hyperpigmentation.
Microdermabrasion involves removing the dead layer of the epidermis ( first layer of skin) .It can be done by various devices . It is an in-office procedure used to treat hyperpigmentation that affects the epidermis only.
