Pigmentation occurs due to the excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. It presents itself as dark spots, uneven skin tone, freckles, or even age spots. When the skin pigment is overstimulated, it is referred to as hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation can occur due to various internal and external factors. Internal factors may include skin type, trauma, hormonal changes, or the skin’s natural aging process. External factors contributing to pigmentation may include excessive or repeated sun exposure.
Several factors contribute to pigmentation. These may be divided into internal, external, and genetic triggers, including:
There are two kinds of pigmentation, epidermal or superficial pigmentation and dermal or deeper pigmentation.
Epidermal pigmentation is usually caused by sun damage on lighter skin tones. Some other examples of superficial pigmentation include:
On the other hand, dermal pigmentation is generally caused by hormonal changes, skin trauma or injury, and medications. They are visible as:
Pigmentation marks commonly appear on your face and elsewhere, like shoulders, neck, hands, and the bikini area. This is a widely prevalent skin condition that affects all skin types and colours. The condition is also aggravated with sun exposure and it is crucial to use SPF 30 + sunscreen over the affected areas whenever venturing outdoors.
At Clinic Cosmo Lipalane, we offer treatments to men and women to achieve beautiful skin and confidence through a wide range of laser, cosmetic, and non-invasive skin treatments.
Our tailored pigmentation treatment in Gurgaon is customised as per your skin type and the severity of the condition. Our pigmentation treatments include:
An exceptional, minimally invasive procedure for treating pigmentation, microneedling is a skin resurfacing solution that is especially beneficial on darker skin tones. This procedure involves creating micro-channels on the skin to promote cellular function and a healing response. Microneedling targets and corrects melanocytes, or cells that produce pigments, for an even skin tone and radiant glow.
Hydra Facials is a dynamic, four-step process that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates the skin. This process is conducted with a patented handheld device that creates a vacuum to remove dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities while hydrating the skin. It makes the skin gentle and restores youthfulness, while also addressing skin concerns like pigmentation.
Chemical peels are highly effective when it comes to pigmentation treatment. Clinic Cosmo Lipalane offers various chemical peels with special formulae to combat pigmentation and signs of aging while hydrating the skin and promoting an even skin tone.
Photo Facial is an effective rejuvenation solution for pigmentation. It is performed by a medical-grade laser beam known as an Intended Pulse Light laser (IPL). This non-invasive procedure focuses light on the target area to absorb melanin. As the light energy converts to heat energy, the target cells are destroyed without disrupting the surrounding skin.
Depending on the area of the body, the pigment will appear darker and will gradually fade off 1-4 weeks after the Photo Facial treatment.
The Q-switch laser technology is a laser facial treatment that uses powerful short pulses to transfer energy through the epidermis layer.
The pulse width is less than 20 nanoseconds – faster than the usual relaxation time of the tissue. This heat breaks down small particles in the skin lesion. These particles are later flushed out by the skin’s immune system.
At Clinic Cosmo Lipalane, we offer pigmentation treatment in Gurgaon which tackles the condition while delivering several benefits to your skin. They are:
The harsh Indian sun can cause pigmentation problems, affecting people of all skin types. Melasma, hormone, and genetic-related conditions can also cause pigmentation. The most effective treatment is the one that treats the condition by focusing on the underlying issues.
The first step towards pigmentation-free skin starts with proper diagnosis. To find out more about your pigmentation concern and the most effective treatment, schedule a consultation with Clinic Cosmo Lipalane. We offer specialised pigmentation treatment in Gurgaon.
Depending on the type of skin, pigmentation, its severity, and the treatment offered, you may require 2-3 sessions. For aggravated conditions, 4-6 treatment sessions may be necessary. Under extreme conditions, you may also need to check in for follow-up treatments.
While mild pigmentation can be removed permanently with skin needling and peels, more severe cases may require laser intervention and may take a longer time to heal. With repeated treatments, both forms of pigmentation can be effectively removed.
However, there are no future guarantees, and you may again see pigmentation developing due to environmental factors and overexposure to the sun. As such, you need to address them with fresh pigmentation treatments. Consult with our dermatologists for the most effective pigmentation treatments in Gurgaon tailored to your skin type and concerns.
The 3 most common causes of pigmentation are as follows:
Years of sun exposure or a single episode of severe sunburn.
Melasma is also referred to as hormonal pigmentation which occurs in women of childbearing age due to hormonal imbalances.
PIH occurs as dark patches on the skin after an injury or trauma.
All pigmentation treatments offered by Clinic Cosmo Lipalane have minimal to no side effects. Laser rejuvenation or photo therapies may involve slight redness or crusting in the treated area. This may last less than 24 hours but may prevail for up to 7 days in rare conditions.
Laser therapy is highly effective for pigmentation treatment, especially among individuals with darker skin tones. The benefits of the treatment are:
Safe with minimal downtime and no side effects.
